West Ham & Spurs Charged by FA

West Ham and Tottenham have been charged by the Football Association, after failing to control their players in Saturday’s derby at the London Stadium. Spurs won 3-2, however, they almost threw that match and their three-goal lead.

A statement from the FA said:

‘It is alleged that in or around the 95th minute of the game, both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.’

Five players were cautioned in stopping time by referee Michael Oliver.

Yellow cards were shown to West Ham’s players, Andy Carroll, Winston Reid and Andre Ayew. Eric Dier and Fernando Llorente were given cards for the Spurs. The incident came from Andy Carroll after a foul, which had both sides a bit angry and saw four players booked by the referee.

The visitors were reduced to just 10 men with 20 minutes left when Serge Aurier received a second yellow card.

Not a good look guys. Not a good look at all. But to be fair, what’s a derby without some conflict? Or horse punching.
