United charged

Manchester United have been charged with failing to control their players during Monday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Chelsea, but Marcos Rojo has avoided sanction for his apparent stamp on Eden Hazard.

Monday’s tense Stamford Bridge encounter ended with Antonio Conte’s Blues triumphing 1-0, with Jose Mourinho’s latest Stamford Bridge return being thrown off kilter by Ander Herrera’s first-half dismissal.

The Spain midfielder’s second booking was followed by United players haranguing referee Michael Oliver – actions that have led to a Football Association charge.

“Manchester United have been charged for failing to control their players,” a statement from the governing body read.

“It follows an incident in the 35th minute of the Emirates FA Cup quarter final tie against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

“The club have until 6pm on Friday, 17 March 2017 to respond to the charge.”
