Tottenham and Brighton have both been charged by the Football Association for the incident which resulted in managers Cristian Stellini and Roberto De Zerbi being sent to the stands.

The pair, who had been seen exchanging words ahead of the match, were sent off after both benches became embroiled in a heated exchange in the second half of the Premier League clash.

Tottenham won the game 2-1 thanks to Harry Kane’s late strike.

An FA spokesperson said: “Tottenham and Brighton have been charged for a mass confrontation that took place during the 58th minute of their Premier League game on Saturday 8 April.

“It’s alleged that both clubs failed to ensure their technical area occupants conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or do not behave in a way which is improper.

“Tottenham and Brighton have until Monday 17 April to respond.”
