Sunderland are bottom of the Premier League, with two points from a possible 30

Sunderland boss David Moyes has been given a one-match touchline ban for swearing at a fourth official.

The incident occurred after the referee turned down a Sunderland penalty appeal in the 90th minute of Wednesday's 1-0 EFL Cup defeat at Southampton.

After the match, Moyes said: "The problem was he chased me down the touchline. I swore at him and I shouldn't have done so."

Sunderland next play at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Moyes, who was appointed as Sunderland boss in July and has managed only two points from 10 league games, will also be fined £8,000, the Football Association said.
