Midlands rivals Aston Villa and Leicester have been charged with failing to control their players during their Premier League clash on Saturday.The Foxes ran out 1-0 winners at the King Power Stadium thanks to Paul Konchesky’s volley but fans witnessed a mass brawl in the closing stages, sparked by Leicester midfielder Matty James and Villa defender Ciaran Clark.The flashpoint came in injury time when James went in hard on Jores Okore and Clark reacted angrily, sparking a melee in the centre circle which involved most of the players on the field.Both were shown straight red cards and clashed again at the mouth of the tunnel as they went off, having to be separated by stewards and coaching staff.A Football Association statement read: “Both Aston Villa and Leicester City have been charged by the FA following their fixture on 10 January 2015.“It is alleged that during added time at the end of the second half, both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.“The clubs have until 6pm on Friday 16 January 2015 to respond to the charge.” 1 Aston Villa and Leicester charged for player scrap
