Marcos Alonso is facing a suspension
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
The incident was not seen by the match officials but the FA have decided to take retrospective action after reviewing footage.
Alonso has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge. If found guilty, the 27-year-old will serve a three-match ban.
That will rule him out of this weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Southampton as well as Premier League clashes against Burnley and Swansea.
