Leicester, Villa charged by FA

A tackle between Matty James and Villa’s Jores Okore late in the game was the spark for a mass confrontation which ended with red cards for James and Villa defender Ciaran Clark.

A Football Association statement confirmed a charge of failing “to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.”

Both clubs have until 6pm on Friday to respond.

Villa were fined ??30,000 for the same offence only last month following an incident during their Premier League game against Manchester United.
