Arsenal and Tottenham players had just been involved in a ferocious scuffle on the sidelines.

And that incident has now warranted a charge from the FA, who claim both sides failed to control the players.

But there is no such charge for Son, who appeared to not be touched as he went over the box following a missed defensive slide-in by Rob Holding.

Incidents such as that now tend to be reviewed by a retrospective action panel.
