West Ham and Tottenham players

West Ham and Tottenham have been charged by the Football Association with failing to control their players in Saturday’s derby at London Stadium.

Spurs won the Premier League match 3-2 but almost squandered a three-goal lead.

The Hammers were pressing for an equaliser in stoppage time when a late melee involving several players occurred, prompting the charge.

Both clubs have until 18:00 BST on Thursday to respond to the charge.

A statement from the FA said: “It is alleged that in or around the 95th minute of the game, both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.”
