The Football Association have charged Manchester United for failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during their clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Saturday.

After referee Stuart Attwell awarded a penalty to Chelsea, following Scott McTominay grabbing of Armando Broja in the penalty box, United players went berserk.

Manchester United players surrounded Stuart Attwell, with the likes of McTominay, Luke Shaw, Fred, Lisandro Martinez and Bruno Fernandes all seemed to have harassed the referee in the process.

The Football Association has now charged Manchester United, who now have until Friday this week to respond.

An FA statement read: “Manchester United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 after its fixture versus Chelsea FC on Saturday 22 October 2022 in the Premier League.

“Manchester United FC allegedly failed to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in the 84th minute, and the club has until Friday 28 October 2022 to provide a response.”
