Next Match: at home to Spurs, December 22
Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo has been charged with violent conduct following a touchline fracas at Newcastle on Saturday. The 27-year-old Italian, who had been replaced by Adam Lallana at half-time during the 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw, faces a Football Association charge in connection with an incident which saw the occupants of both benches clash deep into injury-time at St James' Park. Magpies goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman, who was sent to the stands after the melee, has been charged with improper conduct. Both men have until next Monday to respond. Saints host Spurs this weekend looking to end a five-match winless run.
