BREAKING NEWS: FA charge Man City and Wigan for failing to control players

Manchester City and Wigan Athletic have been charged for failing to control their players during the Latics' fiery 1-0 FA Cup win on Monday, the Football Association (FA) has confirmed.

Tempers flared at the DW Stadium following Fabian Delph's dismissal for a strong challenge on Wigan's Max Power.

Referee Anthony Taylor looked as though he was set to book Delph, before he subsequently brandished a straight red as Wigan players surrounded the City man and match official.

Things then escalated on the touchline, as Pep Guardiola and Wigan coach Paul Cook exchanged words, with their argument continuing into the tunnel.

Cook and Guardiola were eventually separated, but the conduct of the players has landed both clubs in trouble. 

An FA statement read: "Both Wigan Athletic and Manchester City have been charged for failing to control their players in relation to the dismissal of Fabian Delph during last night's [Monday] Emirates FA Cup fifth round tie. The clubs have until 6pm [GMT] on Friday 23 February 2018 to respond."
