Wayne Rooney has admitted an FA charge of using abusive language but has lodged a claim against the severity of his two-match suspension.
The Football Association confirmed that they had received a submission from Manchester United and the case will be heard on Wednesday afternoon.
If Rooney's claim fails he runs the risk of having a suspension that currently includes Saturday's Premier League encounter with Fulham and the following week's FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City at Wembley extended.
