FA Charges West Brom And Watford
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on December 5, 2016
The Football Association have charged West Bromwich Albion and Watford for failing to control their players during Saturday’s fixture.
The incident occurred in the 84th minute when Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra aggressively reacted to a challenge from West Brom midfielder James McLean. This led to a braw which spilled over onto the touch line.
The match resulted in a 3-1 victory for West Brom, with goals from Jonny Evans, Chris Brunt and Matt Phillips after Watford defender Christian Kabasele responded for the visitors.
Watford boss Walter Mazzari claimed that Pereyra was “unfairly sent off.”
Walter Mazzari went on to add “He (Pereyra) was on the floor and his rival kept fouling him. He stood up and gave a small push and that’s when I went to separate them.”
West Brom manager Tony Pulis believes “trouble seems to follow James McClean around.”
Both clubs have until 6:00PM on the 8th of December to respond to the charge handed by the FA.
