Baggies and Spurs charged by FA after McClean flashpoint


West Brom and Tottenham have been charged by the English Football Association after a flare-up towards the end of Saturday's draw at the Hawthorns.

With six minutes remaining of the 1-1 draw, Albion's Irish winger James McClean was booked for a foul on Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele.

An on-field flash point ensued and referee Jonathan Moss was harangued by both sets of players, leading the FA to charge the clubs on Wednesday.

"West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur have both been charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," a statement from the FA read.

"The charge relates to an incident which occurred in or around the 84th minute of their fixture on Saturday 5 December 2015."

West Brom and Tottenham have until 6.0pm tomorrow to respond to the charge.
