Man Utd and Crystal Palace charged after 20-man brawl that saw Casemiro grab Hughes by the throat | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED and Crystal Palace have BOTH been charged by the FA for failing to control their players in their clash last Saturday.

The 20-man brawl took place midway through the second half of United's 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.

And it resulted in Casemiro being sent off after the Brazilian appeared to put two hands on the throat of Palace man Will Hughes.

The incident occurred because United players were unhappy with Jeffrey Schlupp's rash challenge on Antony.

Moments later, every out-field player was involved in a mele with Raphael Varane, Fred and Casemiro furious at the tackle.

Ultimately, the ex-Real Madrid star went too far and is now serving a three-match ban after receiving a red card.
