Arsenal and Tottenham players engaged in few scuffles during the North London derby

Arsenal and Tottenham have been charged by the FA following a scuffle during the north London derby, which started after Eric Dier’s equaliser at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Eric Dier’s celebration after equalising in the 32nd minute putting his finger to his mouth upset Arsenal’s substitutes on the touchline and players from both sides waded in as referee Mike Dean struggled to calm the situation at the Emirates.

He was subsequently booked after the altercation. However, Arsenal went on to beat their rivals 4-2 after second-half goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira.

Both clubs are charged with failing to “ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”. They have until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.
