(REUTERS) - West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur have been charged for failing to control their players during last Saturday's Premier League derby at the London Stadium, the FA said on Wednesday.

The players clashed after Spurs were awarded a free-kick in the 95th minute of their 3-2 win.

The scuffle resulted in four players being booked - Tottenham's Eric Dier and Fernando Llorente and West Ham's Andy Carroll and Winston Reid.

"It is alleged that in or around the 95th minute of the game, both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," the FA (Football Association) said in a statement.

Both clubs have until Thursday (Sept 28) to respond to the charge.

Elsewhere, Russian champions Spartak Moscow have been charged by Uefa after fans displayed illicit banners and set off fireworks during the 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The disciplinary proceedings also cover the blocking of stairways and illicit chants at the Group E game in the Otkrytie Arena.

It is the second time this month that the club have been charged by European football's governing body.

During Spartak's 1-1 draw in their group opener at Slovenian champions Maribor on Sept 14, a flare fired from the visiting supporters' stand almost hit German referee Deniz Aytekin.

The club were fined €60,000 euros (S$95,757) and banned from selling tickets to supporters for their next away match in Europe, at Sevilla on Nov 1.

Uefa's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with the latest case on Oct 19.
