Newcastle's Aleksandar Mitrovic will serve a three-match ban after he admitted a Football Association violent conduct charge following an incident involving West Ham's Manuel Lanzini.

The Serbia forward appeared to catch the Hammers midfielder with an elbow during his side's 3-0 win on Saturday.

The incident was not seen by the match officials but was caught on camera.

The 22-year-old will miss Newcastle's upcoming games against Swansea, Stoke and Brighton.
