MANCHESTER UNITED have been charged by the Football Association for failing to "conduct themselves in an orderly fashion" during their Premier League defeat against Liverpool on Sunday.
United's players surrounded referee Craig Pawson midway through the opening period after Virgil van Dijk challenged David De Gea.
Roberto Firmino subsequently scored, but his goal was chalked off following a VAR review of Van Dijk's clash with the United goalkeeper.
United have until Thursday to respond to the charge.
A statement from the FA read: "Manchester United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20(a).
"It is alleged that the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of the Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Sunday (19/1/20)."
Newly-announced United captain Harry Maguire was the one leading the furious outrage from United players as the goal was originally given.
A furious De Gea also screamed innocence, rushing over to Pawson to vent his frustration.

It was a beautiful curled effort from Firmino that seemingly put Liverpool 2-0 up - but the ref, under intense pressure, decided to consult the much-maligned video technology.
Seconds later the goal was ruled out, much to Maguire and co's relief.
