Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey has been charged with violent conduct, the Football Association has announced.

Shelvey clashed with Liverpool’s Emre Can in Swansea’s 4-1 Barclays Premier League defeat at Anfield on Monday night when he appeared to fling back an arm into the face of the German defender, but the incident went unpunished at the time with rreferee Andre Marriner waving play on.

“Swansea City’s Jonjo Shelvey on Tuesday has been charged by The FA for violent conduct, following an incident in his side’s fixture with Liverpool,” said an FA statement.

“The incident, which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video, occurred during the fixture between the two sides at Anfield on Monday 29 December 2014.

“Shelvey has until 6pm on Wednesday 31 December 2014 to respond to the charge.”

If found guilty, Shelvey, who was sent off at Everton at the start of November, could face a four-match ban, starting at QPR on New Year’s Day.
