The Football Association charged West Ham and ­Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday for failing to control their players during their Premier League clash at the weekend.

Spurs won Saturday's derby at the London Stadium 3-2 but almost squandered a three-goal lead.

The Hammers were pressing for an equalizer in stoppage time when tempers frayed.

"It is alleged that in or around the 95th minute of the game, both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," a statement from the FA said.

Five players were cautioned by referee Michael Oliver in stoppage time.

The incident that prompted the charge came after a foul by West Ham's Andy Carroll, which drew angry reactions from both sides and saw four players booked.
