 Aston Villa have failed in their bid to overturn midfielder Fabian Delph's three-match ban for serious foul play, the FA said on Tuesday.

Delph was sent off in the Premier League game against Sunderland on Sunday and Villa appealed, saying his suspension was too harsh a punishment.

The England international will miss Premier League matches against Crystal Palace and Leicester City and the FA Cup third-round clash with Blackpool. 

Meanwhile, Aston Villa have been fined 30,000 pounds ($46,700) for failing to control their players during this month's Premier League game against Manchester United, the FA said on Tuesday.

The Villa players were incensed by the sending-off of forward Gabriel Agbonlahor in the 65th minute of the 1-1 draw against United at Villa Park and complained to referee Lee Mason.

Agbonlahor's red card was later rescinded.
