Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been charged with violent conduct, the Football Association has announced.

Alli's charge relates to an incident with West Brom's Claudio Yacob, in which the 20-year-old appeared to punch his opponent in the stomach during Monday's 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.

If found guilty, Alli could face a three-match suspension. He has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge.
