Eric Dier has been charged with misconduct for entering the crowd to remonstrate in a 'threatening' manner with a Tottenham supporter.

Dier claimed he had left the pitch and entered the stands, clambering over rows of seats in an attempt to protect his brother who he noticed had become involved in an argument with an angry fan.

The incident happened at Spurs' ground on March 4 after they had been beaten on penalties by Norwich in the FA Cup fifth round.
