Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been charged by the FA with an alleged act of violent conduct in Sunday's game against West Ham.
The Manchester City forward was involved in an incident with West Ham defender Winston Reid in the 76th minute of the match.
Aguero has until 6pm on Wednesday August 31 to respond to the charge.
Off-the-ball incidents which are not seen at the time by the match officials are referred to a panel of three former elite match officials.
Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence.
For retrospective action to be taken, and an FA charge to follow, the decision of the panel must be unanimous.

If Aguero is found guilty of the charge, he could be suspended for three games, which would rule him out of the Manchester derby on September 10.
Aguero is currently sidelined with a calf injury and will not play in either of Argentina's World Cup qualifiers - against Uruguay and Venezuela - during the international window.
