The Football Association has officially charged Manchester City with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 for failing to control their players during the 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur. The charge stems from an incident in the 94th minute when several City players confronted referee Simon Hooper after he halted play for a foul on Erling Haaland in the build-up to Jack Grealish's goal.

In a statement on Monday, the FA outlined the allegation, stating that City is accused of not ensuring their players behaved properly during the incident. The club has until Thursday to respond to the charge. Following the draw, City slipped to third place in the Premier League standings, trailing leaders Arsenal by three points. Their upcoming match involves an away fixture against Aston Villa on Wednesday.
