Connor Wickham has been charged for violent conduct

Connor Wickham has been charged for an alleged act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

The Crystal Palace forward was involved in an incident with Tottenham Hotspur’s Jan Vertonghen in the 69th minute of the game on Saturday [23 January 2016].

The matter was referred to a panel of three former elite referees who each reviewed the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they considered it a sending-off offence.

For an FA charge to follow the decision by the panel must be unanimous.

The player has until 6pm on Tuesday 26 January 2016 to reply to the charge.
