The English Football Association has charged Chelsea striker Didier Drogba with violent conduct after he threw a coin into the crowd during his club's League Cup defeat by Burnley.

Drogba's reaction to having been hit by a coin that was thrown at him from the stands leaves him liable for a three-match ban.

The incident is also being investigated by London police, who are expected to issue the Ivory Coast forward with a caution.
