FA charges Hasselbaink
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink
The Football Association has charged Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink with violent conduct.

The charge stems from an alleged use of the elbow in last Saturday's 1-0 win at Scarborough in the FA Cup.

The player, who has 14 days to respond, has a good record of escaping disciplinary action.

Two seasons ago the Dutch striker had two red cards rescinded and was also found not guilty of a violent conduct charge.

The first red was struck off when it was ruled he had not elbowed Martin Keown, while the second was a case of mistaken identity after Teddy Sheringham was struck while playing for Spurs against Chelsea

Hasselbaink was also found not guilty of a violent conduct charge which alleged he had elbowed Southampton's Claus Lundekvam.
