Chelsea's Eden Hazard has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association after kicking out at a Swansea ball boy.

The Belgian midfielder faces a three-match ban for his dismissal, but the FA alleges the standard punishment was "clearly insufficient".

Hazard was sent off in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg after the incident with Charlie Morgan, 17.

The player has until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge.

The FA says it will remind all clubs "of their responsibilities in ensuring ball boys and other personnel around the pitch act in an appropriate manner at all times."
