Arsenal and Hull charged over brawl

BY foxsports • December 23, 2009

A bad-tempered match at the Emirates Stadium erupted shortly before half-time when Nasri treaded on the ankle of Hull's Richard Garcia. Stephen Hunt then clashed with Nasri and a mass confrontation took place in front of referee Steve Bennett, with Arsenal goalkeeper Almunia sprinting 100 yards to get involved. Players from both sides became embroiled in ugly scenes with Bennett eventually booking Hunt and Nasri. Arsenal went on to win the game 3-0. The clubs have until January 13 to respond to the charge.
