Cape Town - Watford striker Troy Deeney has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association over an incident involving Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen on Saturday.

The pair clashed in the final stages of the Potters' 1-0 win at Vicarage Road after Deeney aimed to cross instead of giving back possession to the visitors, who had kicked the ball out so that an injured player could be attended to.

The Hornets captain grabbed Allen in the face with both hands during a shoving match, which led to bookings for both players.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes said in his post-match interview that Deeney had risked the wrath of the FA, who took retrospective action on Monday.

The 29-year-old has registered one goal and one assist in eight Premier League appearances for Marco Silva's side this season.
