Everton boss David Moyes and assistant manager Steve Round have both admitted FA charges of improper conduct relating to the 3-3 draw with Manchester United.

The duo faced action after they confronted referee Martin Atkinson on the pitch at full-time of a thrilling Goodison Park encounter, being angered by the official blowing his whistle as the Toffees attacked in search of a winning goal.

An FA statement confirmed:"Everton manager David Moyes and assistant manager Steve Round have both admitted improper conduct charges.

"The charges related to Moyes' and Round's conduct towards referee Martin Atkinson on the pitch following the final whistle at Everton's match against Manchester United on 11 September.

"Moyes has accepted the £8,000 fine which is the standard sanction offered for this charge under the FA's new fast-track disciplinary procedures.

"Round has submitted a plea in mitigation with relation to the standard sanction. This will be heard by a Regulatory Commission on Monday 20 September."
