Man Utd set to be fined record amount after being charged by FA for failing to control players against Fulham | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED face their FOURTH player misbehaviour fine of the season after ALSO being charged by the FA for their part in last Sunday’s mayhem against Fulham.
Wembley beaks are set to hand Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic a potentially season-ending ban for shoving and then confronting referee Chris Kavanagh.

An FA spokesperson said: “Manchester United FC has been charged after its players surrounded a match official during the 71st minute of The FA Cup tie against Fulham FC on Sunday 19 March.
“It’s alleged that Manchester United FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or do not behave in a way which is improper.
