Southampton won the EFL Cup tie at St Mary's through Sofiane Boufal's stunning strike into the top corner

Sunderland manager David Moyes has been charged with misconduct after being sent off at Southampton on Wednesday.

The Football Association said it is alleged "Moyes used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official".

The incident occurred in the 90th minute, after referee Chris Kavanagh waved away appeals for a foul on Sunderland striker Victor Anichebe in the penalty area.

Sunderland lost the EFL Cup match 1-0.

Moyes, who was appointed Black Cats boss in July and has managed only two points from nine league games, has until 18:00 BST on Tuesday to respond.
