Tottenham's Sissoko charged by FA with violent conduct

Tottenham will accept the Football Association's violent conduct charge against Moussa Sissoko, and expect the France midfielder to receive a three-match ban.

The £30million summer signing from Newcastle should now be banned for Tuesday's EFL Cup tie at Liverpool and Premier League matches against Leicester and bitter rivals Arsenal.

Sissoko has until 6pm on Tuesday evening to respond to the charge, though it is unknown at this time whether or not he or Tottenham will contest it.

"But when I saw it on TV I need to say there was no intention but the elbow was in the face of Arter, that's clear".

"Off the ball incidents which are not seen at the time by the match officials are referred to a panel of three former elite match officials".

While Bournemouth's Arter reacted angrily during the match at Dean Court, he said afterwards that he hopes Sissoko avoids retrospective punishment.

"We accept it, as a club", Pochettino said.

He added: "It's true that it's hard now because he was a player who was in our plans and now we have to change a little bit".

"After reviewing the video we have said that we accept the charge and now we move forward", Pochettino said (via The Guardian). I'm not one to hold grudges.

"He (Sissoko) was in our plans to play but now we need to change a little".

"I believe in him, that it wasn't intentional, but the action happened".

"He said it was an accident".

"He caught me straight in the face and if you get hit in the face anyone would have a reaction", Arter said.

We'll see if the Premier League also conclude that Sissoko didn't mean to catch the Bournemouth man. They were frustrated in the league by Bournemouth on Saturday, a week after escaping from West Brom with a point, the Champions League stalemate with Bayer Leverkusen sandwiched between those two league games.

"But we have a squad who deserve to play".
