The incident occurred as Hernandez and Jones grappled at a Hull corner

Hull City's Abel Hernandez has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Associationexternal-link after he appeared to punch Manchester United's Phil Jones.

The incident, in the 70th minute of Hull's 0-0 draw with United on Sunday, was not seen by match officials but caught on video.

The result, coupled with a win for Newcastle, relegated the Tigers.

The Uruguayan striker has until Wednesday to reply to the charge.

A disciplinary panel will review the footage and determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence.

For retrospective action to be taken, the decision by the panel must be unanimous.
