STOKE, England (AP) -Stoke defender Robert Huth has been banned for three matches for striking Fulham's Philippe Senderos in the face during a Premier League game.

Match officials missed the incident, which occurred as the two defenders jostled at a corner during Fulham's 1-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday. But the English Football Association charged the German center back with violent conduct after seeing replays.

Huth accepted the charge Wednesday and will miss league matches for mid-table Stoke against West Ham, Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion.
