According to Sky Sports the 24-year-old allegedly mouthed “what’s the point in playing?” towards the match official.

But the FA have ruled that because Hayden “did not question the integrity or neutrality of the officials, there would be no further sanction”.

As a result, Hayden will sit out this weekend’s Premier League visit of Manchester United to St James’s Park, as well as the trip to Chelsea on October 19 and Wolves at home on October 27. South Korean Ki Sung-yeung was brought on to play in midfield at the King Power Stadium and is likely to continue in the former Arsenal man’s absence.
