City land misconduct charge

City land misconduct charge

Manchester City have been charged with misconduct in the wake of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, the Football Association has confirmed.

The charge stems from an incident early in the second half when City's players surrounded referee Michael Oliver after he awarded the Reds' a penalty.

The Citizens protested Oliver's decision to penalise Gael Clichy after he challenged Roberto Firmino inside the area, with James Milner slotting home the subsequent spot-kick to put the visitors in front.

Pep Guardiola's side managed to salvage a share of the spoils through Sergio Aguero's 69th-minute equaliser to remain a point ahead of the fourth-placed Merseysiders.

City have already been fined £35,000 by the FA this season after being found guilty of a similar charge following their 3-1 defeat to Chelsea in December.

"It is alleged that in or around the 50th minute of the fixture, the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion,'' read a statement from English football's governing body.
