David Moyes has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association following his sending-off at Southampton.

The Sunderland manager is alleged to have “used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official”.

Moyes was sent off in the 90th minute of the EFL Trophy fourth round tie at St Mary’s, seconds after referee Chris Kavanagh rejected strong appeals for a penalty after Sunderland striker Victor Anichebe tumbled in the box.

Moyes has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the charge.
