Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is charged by the FA for his post-match comments about referee Craig Pawson following their defeat to Chelsea.

The Football Association have announced that Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has been charged with misconduct following his post-match comments about referee Craig Pawson after last Saturday's defeat to Chelsea.

The 65-year-old claimed that the match official was "influenced" in his decisions during Palace's 2-1 defeat to the Premier League leaders.

A statement from the FA said: "It is alleged that Warnock's post-match comments constituted improper conduct in that they implied the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute, in contravention of FA Rule E3[1]."

Warnock, who returned to Palace as manager for a second spell in August, has until 6pm on October 27 to respond to the charge.
