John Obi Mikel: Charged by the FA over Mark Clattenburg incident

The 25-year-old is accused of using threatening and/or abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour in or around the match officials' changing room at Stamford Bridge.

The charge follows the FA's decision to clear referee Mark Clattenburg over allegations he used racist language towards Mikel during the 28 October clash.

The Nigeria international approached Clattenburg after the match after he was informed of the allegations by Chelsea team-mate Ramires.

A statement from Chelsea said Mikel did not deny the charges but would request a personal hearing with the FA to explain the mitigating circumstances.
