Premier League sides Watford and West Brom have each been given a £45,000 fine by the Football Association for failing to control their players.

The charge related to an incident which led to Watford's Roberto Pereyra being sent off during a 3-1 Premier League defeat at The Hawthorns on 3 December.

Pereyra reacted angrily to a challenge by Albion midfielder James McClean, and both players clashed on the touchline.

The FA said players failed to conduct themselves "in an orderly fashion".
