Burnley’s James Tarkowski has been charged by The FA with violent conduct following an incident with Brighton & Hove Albion’s Glenn Murray.

It happened in the 35th minute of the game on Saturday 16 December and was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

He has until 6pm on Tuesday 19 December to respond.

Off the ball incidents which are not seen at the time are referred by The FA to a panel of three former elite match officials.

Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence.

For retrospective action to be taken, and an FA charge to follow, the decision of the panel must be unanimous.
