Slimani, who is on loan from Leicester City, appeared to kick out at West Brom defender Craig Dawson in the 80th minute of the match at St James’ Park.

The incident was not spotted by referee David Coote but was caught on video and the Algeria international has until 1700 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge, the FA said on their website.
