Stoke's Robert Huth has been charged with violent conduct following an incident during Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Fulham.
The Football Association confirmed on Tuesday the defender would face action following a clash with Fulham counterpart Philippe Senderos.
The incident was not seen by the match officials at Craven Cottage - but was caught on video.Huth has until 1800 GMT on Wednesday to respond to the charge. Dimitar Berbatov's goal was enough to settle a scrappy contest.
Stoke had been lucky to not be reduced to 10 men midway through the first half after Steven Nzonzi, who had taken a knock on the nose in an earlier collision with Berbatov, was booked for shoving Bryan Ruiz in the face.
