Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has been charged with violent conduct by the English FA after a video replay of Saturday's Premier League win over Stoke City. Stoke midfielder Rory Delap was sent off for kicking the ball at Wright-Phillips while he lay on the ground. Wright-Phillips then appeared to kick out at Delap in retaliation but the referee did not see that. "The incident was not seen by referee Martin Atkinson. Having now watched video footage of the incident, Atkinson has informed The FA that, had he seen it at the time, he would have shown Wright-Phillips a red card for violent conduct," an FA statement said.
