​Burnley defender Tarkowski charged with violent conduct

Burnley defender James Tarkowski has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association following an incident with Brighton's Glenn Murray in their game on Saturday.

The former Brentford defender appeared to swing his arm into Murray's chest.

The 25 year old has until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge and could face a three-game suspension.

As referee Chris Kavanagh did not see the incident, it was referred by the FA to a panel of three former match officials, who must vote unanimously that the incident warranted a red card for a charge to be brought.
