Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been given an additional one-match ban and a fine of £10,000 following his dismissal against Southampton.

The 26-year-old was shown a red card for sarcastically clapping referee Andre Marriner, moments after being cautioned at St Mary's.

Ivory Coast international Zaha accepted a charge of improper conduct.

The suspension is not currently effective while the player considers his right of appeal.
