Sunderland and Bournemouth charged by FA

The Football Association has charged Sunderland and Bournemouth for failing to control their players at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Eddie Howe's side recorded a 1-0 victory courtesy of Josh King's 88th-minute goal, which confirmed the Wearsiders' relegation from the Premier League with four games left in the season.

The charges stem from an incident in the 76th minute when both sets of players clashed after Black Cats forward Fabio Borini went in on Cherries midfielder Lewis Cook from behind.

Borini was shoved to the ground, and the Italian forward was booked by referee Stuart Attwell, along with Harry Arter for the opposition, once order had been restored.

A statement from the FA read: "Both Sunderland and Bournemouth have been charged following their game on Saturday.

"It is alleged that in or around the 76th minute of the fixture, the clubs failed to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion. They have until 6pm on May 5 to respond to the charge."
