Manchester United charged with disciplinary breach by FA during Chelsea game

Manchester United have been charged by the Football Association (FA) for alleged improper conduct following the award of Chelsea’s penalty last weekend.

Casemiro’s header deep into added time cancelled out Jorginho’s spot-kick as United rescued a dramatic draw at Stamford Bridge.

Graham Potter’s side looked to have won the match when Jorginho converted from the spot following a foul from Scott McTominay while trying to defend a Chelsea corner.

The Scotland international was punished for grabbing hold of Armando Broja as the pair fought to win the ball as it was delivered into the box.

McTominay’s actions were punishable by the letter of the law, but United’s players felt aggrieved at the decision given how often similar incidents go unpunished on a weekly basis.

Following the award of the penalty, several United players protested to referee Stuart Attwell, actions that resulted in a subsequent FA charge for a breach of rule E20.1.

The rule breached states that: “Each Affiliated Association, Competition and Club shall be responsible for ensuring that its Directors, players, officials, employees, servants, representatives, conduct themselves in an orderly fashion whilst attending any Match and do not use words or otherwise behave in a way which is improper, offensive, violent, threatening, abusive, indecent, insulting or provocative.”

United have been given until Friday 28 October 2022 to provide a response.
