Manchester United have been charged by the Football Association for failing to “conduct themselves in an orderly fashion” during their 2 – 0 Premier League defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

The incident happened after Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk challenged goalkeeper David De Gea, which led to Roberto Firmino’s goal but it was later disallowed and free-kick was given to Manchester United.

Before the goal was disallowed, about seven United’s players were seen surrounding referee Craig Pawson to confront him for not disallowing the goal initially.

A statement from the FA read: “Manchester United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20(a).


“It is alleged that the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of the Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Sunday (19/1/20).”

Speaking about the charge today, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Maybe I shouldn’t talk too much about that. Let’s get that decision done. The goal – it’s overturned. I reacted myself because everybody could see it was a foul.”

United have until Thursday to respond to the charge.
