Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been charged by the Football Association for an alleged elbow on Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter.

Sissoko caught Arter in the second half of Saturday's 0-0 draw, apologising to the Cherries midfielder afterwards.

The FA said the incident was missed by the match officials and will now be reviewed by a three-man panel.

Sissoko has until 18:00 BST on Tuesday to respond but could face a three-match suspension for violent conduct.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was banned for three matches last month after being found guilty of violent conduct against West Ham defender Winston Reid, after initially going unpunished.

Speaking to Match of the Day after the game, Arter said he was happy to accept Sissoko's explanation that the contact was accidental.

He said: "I never want to see a player get into trouble if they didn't mean to. Sissoko apologised. I'm happy to move on from it."

Not the best start to his Tottenham career.
With the fixtures coming thick and fast,not the best time to be missing.I hope Poch hammers him over this needless ban.Being agressive is fine,picking up needless booking is understandable,needless suspensions cost us last season at the death and completely avoidable.Now if he had crowned Wilshere I could have lived with that.

What really grates with me is that Arter stated after the match that he didn't want MS to get a ban but he went down like he had been pole axed and wriggled around like a little girl, then jumped up and wanted to square up. There was not even a mark on face as far as I could see, so it was more a handbag than a full blooded elbow. Mind you no excuse for MS's behaviour.

Tottenham have accepted the violent conduct charge against forward Moussa Sissoko, who will now be banned for three matches.

Sissoko elbowed Bournemouth's Harry Arter on the touchline after coming on as a substitute in Saturday's 0-0 draw at the Vitality Stadium.

The incident was not seen by the match officials.

He will miss Tuesday's EFL Cup tie at Liverpool, Saturday's home league game against Leicester and the north London derby at Arsenal on 6 November.

On accepting the Moussa Sissoko charge, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said: "We have reviewed the video. We accept the charge and now we move forward.

"After the game it was difficult when I was asked about the action. It was true that it was difficult for me to appreciate the situation of what happened.

"But when I saw it on TV I need to say there was no intention but the elbow was in the face of Arter, that's clear.

"We accept the charge, and now we need to move forward, and expect a three-match ban."

Ridiculous that as the ref gave a yellow card this 6 studs to the knee isnt also worthy of a spell on the sidelines to reflect.One of the more ridiculous laws of the game ATM.


As for sissoko,"it`s a fair cop `guv "

Indeed. As ridiculous is the explanation for the rule, that they don't want to overrule the ref's judgment. Can't complain about Sissoko's ban, esp. as he and really Lamela should've seen red in the actual game itself, making it much worse.

No offence as it was only Fellaini. He has dished out more red card elbows, stamps, studs etc and got away with it.

Do you ever get the suspicion that some people in various places do not want us to succeed?

Violent conduct? Football is turning into a game for pussies. that was about as violent as someone shouting out 'you didn't roll that ball very well' at a Bowls competition. If that had happened in Rugby the ref would have said to After - 'stop being a cunt' and to Sissoko 'put your handbag away' and got on with the game. But, we have a big deal made out of nothing and a three match ban. Arter should heave been off the field earlier, Wilshire should have been booked for his whining to the ref trying (and succeeding) to get Alli (I think) booked. The ref was a twunt and he DID see the so-called incident but hasn't got the gonads needed to say he saw it and it was just a bit of handbags.
