Manchester City defender Kerstin Casparij has been charged by the Football Association with making an alleged offensive gesture during the Manchester derby on 23 March.

The Netherlands international's charge relates to an incident in the 37th minute in City's 3-1 win at the Etihad.

Jess Park gave City the lead eight minutes before half-time, when Casparij is alleged to have made a gesture towards Manchester United's away support.

Casparij has until 3 April to respond.

City's win took them top for 24 hours in the Women's Super League, before Chelsea's victory against West Ham restored the Blues' lead at the top on goal difference.
