Manchester United have been charged by the English FA for failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 2-0 defeat by Liverpool on Sunday.

The charge relates to an incident where United players confronted referee Craig Pawson after he had initially allowed a goal by Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.

But the video assistant referee ruled out the goal for a foul by Virgil van Dijk on keeper David de Gea in the build-up.

A statement from the FA read: “Manchester United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20(a). It is alleged that the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of the Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Sunday (19/1/20)”

Manchester United have until Thursday to respond to the charge.
