Manchester United charged by FA after Liverpool defeat

Manchester United have been charged by the FA with failing to ensure their players "conducted themselves in an orderly fashion" during Sunday's Premier League defeat at Liverpool.
United's players surrounded referee Craig Pawson midway through the first half after Virgil van Dijk challenged David de Gea in the air.

Roberto Firmino subsequently scored but his goal was chalked off following a VAR review of Van Dijk's clash with the United goalkeeper.
De Gea was booked by Pawson for his protests.
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)."
Manchester United have until Thursday to respond to the charge.
