Arsenal have been charged with 'failing to ensure players conduct themselves in orderly fashion' during the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on New Years Day. 

The Gunners have been charged by the Football Association for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the loss to Pep Guardiola's table toppers.

The incident occured just before the hour mark, when centre-back Gabriel was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.

The Brazilian was booked twice inside two minutes, as City came rom behind to win the game, despite an outstadning performance from the Arsenal side. 

Arsenal have until Friday [January 7] to respond to the FA charge.

After the game Arsenal assistant manager Albert Stuivenberg and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale called for more consistency in terms of referees using the pitchside monitor.
