Norwich City and Newcastle United have both been charged by the FA with failing to control their players following the double sending off that marred their recent 0-0 Premier League draw at Carrow Road.

The Canaries have until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge after players from both sides became embroiled in the aftermath of the dismissals of Newcastle striker Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson. Remy was dismissed for a head butt gesture towards Johnson before the City midfielder was also sent off for raising his hands into the chest of the Frenchman. Johnson’s appeal against his three-match ban was upheld last week but Remy served the first of his three-match suspension for violent conduct in Saturday’s 3-0 derby defeat to Sunderland.

The FA released a statement on Monday lunchtime which read: “Both Norwich City and Newcastle United have been charged by The FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour. The charge relates to an incident in or around the 82nd minute of their match on Tuesday 28 January 2014. The clubs have until 6pm on Wednesday 5 February 2014 to respond to the charge.”
