Manchester United have been charged by the English FA for failing to control their players in the 1-0 loss against Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday.
Man. United charged

The club was charged on Tuesday by the Football Association, FA, with failing to call their players to order during the explosive quarter-final encounter.

United’s Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera was sent off in the first half shortly after referee Michael Oliver warned captain Chris Smalling about the continual fouling of Chelsea’s forward
Eden Hazard.

Marcos Rojo was also caught on camera seemingly stamping on Hazard’s chest in the second half of the match.

The FA took exception more to the reaction of the players when Herrera was dismissed with several surrounding the official and arguing with him over the decision.

FA’s statement reads, “Manchester United have been charged for failing to control their players.

“It follows an incident in the 35th minute of the FA Cup quarter final tie against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge yesterday [Monday]

“The club have until 6pm [1800GMT] on Friday, 17 March 2017 to respond to the charge.”
