Arsenal and Hull charged over ugly scenes
Wednesday 23 December 2009
The Football Association have charged Arsenal and Hull with failing to control their players following the Barclays Premier League clash on 19 December.
A bad-tempered match at the Emirates Stadium erupted shortly before half-time when Samir Nasri appeared to tread on the ankle of Hull's Richard Garcia.
Stephen Hunt then clashed with Nasri and a mass confrontation took place in front of referee Steve Bennett, with Arsenal goalkeeper Almunia sprinting 100 yards to get involved. Players from both sides became embroiled in ugly scenes with Bennett eventually booking Hunt and Nasri.
Arsenal went on to win the game 3-0. The clubs have until 13 January to respond.
