The two clubs were charged after a clash between players in the final minutes of Stoke’s 1-0 victory at Vicarage Road. Watford captain Troy Deeney grabbed Stoke midfielder Joe Allen’s face and neck, with match referee Michael Oliver showing a yellow card to both players.

Deeney has been since banned for three matches for violent conduct.
