English FA charges Man City for failing to control players against Liverpool
Manchester City have landed a Football Association misconduct charge for allegedly failing to control their players during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
A number of players were seen to surround referee Michael Oliver after he awarded the visitors a penalty just after half-time.
"It is alleged that in or around the 50th minute of the fixture, the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion,'' said an FA statement.
The charge comes after city rival Manchester United were recently fined for the same offence.
City have until 6 p.m. local time on Thursday to respond to the charge.
