West Ham midfielder Mark Noble's red card for a tackle on Liverpool's Danny Ings has been overturned.

But the Premier League club has been charged by the Football Association with failing to control its players as they reacted to Noble's dismissal.

The club have until 18:00 BST on 7 September to respond to the charge.

The incident happened during West Ham's 3-0 Premier League win at Anfield on Saturday - and Noble faced a three-match suspension for the red card.

"I got a red card from the referee but it wasn't even a yellow," Noble said after the match. He is now free to face Newcastle on 14 September.
