Jose Antonio Reyes has been charged with violent conduct by The FA.Jose Antonio Reyes has been charged with violent conduct by The Football Association following a scuffle during Arsenal's FA Cup tie with Sheffield United on Saturday.
Dennis Bergkamp was sent off by referee Neale Barry for a shove on Danny Cullip, but television replays showed that Reyes had aimed a slap at the United stopper.
Arsenal have already appealed against Bergkamp's dismissal and Reyes now has until 6pm on Tuesday to contest this charge of violent conduct.
The Spanish winger will be facing a three-match ban for the offence, with any hearing to be held on February 24 if he contests the charge.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw at Highbury after Bergkamp's early dismissal, and the two sides play again on March 1 for the right to face Bolton in the next round of the FA Cup.
