England [UK], Apr 24 (ANI): Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association (FA) on Wednesday, following his sending-off during the match against Burnley.

"Maurizio Sarri has been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 94th minute of Monday's [22/04/2019] Premier League fixture between Chelsea and Burnley," FA said in a statement.

"The Chelsea manager has until 18:00 on Friday [26/04/2019] to provide a response," it added.

The 60-year old was sent off for leaving his technical area and walking down the touchline when the game was in the 94th minute.

Both the teams scored two goals in the first half and the game concluded on the same. However, the game witnessed an altercation between both sets of players and staff members at full-time.

Chelsea will now face Manchester United on April 28. (ANI)
