Manchester city’s Erling Haaland could be charged by the FA for his furious outburst that followed Manchester City’s 3-3 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.


Jack Grealish appeared to be through on goal after Haaland shook off a tackle by Emerson Royal with only the goalkeeper to beat but referee Simon Hooper blew his whistle and called play back for a city free kick.


Haaland was outraged by the decision, was shown a yellow card after losing his temper on the pitch but could face further punishment if the FA deem his social media post to be a breath of Rule E3.1, governing social media comments or remarks made in the media.


Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was charged with a breach under the same rule after his outburst that followed the Gunners’ controversial defeat to Newcastle United in early November.


Pep Guardiola defended his striker’s reaction post-match, insisting that the team is a little bit disappointed.
