Premier League: Norwich and Newcastle charged for failing to control players after clash last weekend


Newcastle and Norwich have both been charged by the FA for failing to control their players during the sides' 0-0 draw at Carrow Road last weekend.

In a statement, the governing body said: "The teams have been charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

"The charge relates to an incident in or around the 82nd minute of their match on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 and the clubs have until 6pm on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 to respond to the charge."

Newcastle striker Loic Remy, who had hit the woodwork twice during the game,  and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson were sent off towards the end of the 0-0 draw following a spat which resulted in the duo going head-to-head on the touchline.

Johnson seemed to move backwards as though Remy had butted him, which further incensed the Frenchman.

A number of players from each side became involved in the resulting altercation and the FA has now charged both clubs.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew and Norwich boss Chris Hughton had opposing views of the incident, with Hughton feeling Johnson's dismissal was unjust, whilst Pardew agreed with him being sent off.
