The former Liverpool player was dismissed on 81 minutes at The Valley after picking up a second yellow card for going in to a challenge with Addicks midfielder Diego Poyet with a high foot.

Riera reacted angrily to referee Darren Bond's decision and had to be dragged away by team-mates after confronting the official.

The 31-year-old has until 6pm on Tuesday, May 6 to respond to the FA charge.

Charlton won the match 3-1 to secure their Championship status, while Watford are comfortably in mid-table.

Riera joined Watford on a short-term deal at the end of March after being released by Turkish side Galatasaray in January.

The Spain international has an agreement to join Udinese - the other side controlled by Watford's owners - in the summer.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
