However, several United stars surrounded referee Peter Bankes after Brighton captain Lewis Dunk fouled Anthony Elanga early in the second half.

The official initially showed Dunk a yellow card, but that was upgraded to a red after consultation with VAR.

The initial decision to only caution the defender was protested vociferously by a number of United players.

Fernandes was also booked for his over-the-top reaction during the protest.

Now the FA have announced that they are set to take action against Ralf Rangnick’s side.

A statement read: “Manchester United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 following its Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion FC on Tuesday [15/2/22].

“It is alleged that Manchester United FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 53rd minute, and the club has until Monday [21/2/22] to provide a response.”
