Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been charged with improper conduct after being sent off during his side 1-0 loss at Aston Vila last weekend.
Mourinho walked onto the pitch to speak with referee Chris Foy after Chelsea midfielder Ramires was shown a red card late in the encounter.
Chelsea were already down to ten men by the time of the incident after another player, Willian, was handed his marching order earlier in the match.
Mourinho has until 18:00 GMT on Monday, 24 March, to respond to the Football Association (FA) charge.
The Saturday evening loss at Villa Park trimmed the league leaders’ lead to four points.
Mourinho said after the match he wanted to speak to Foy about Villa’s already-substituted forward Gabriel Agbonlahor’s role during the melee.
