Manchester United will be without Bastian Schweinsteiger for three matches.

The German midfielder has accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

Schweinsteiger raised his arm to West Ham defender Winston Reid in their Premier League draw at Old Trafford on Saturday in an incident which was not seen by the referee.

The midfielder has made 22 appearances in all competitions for United this season, scoring once.
