Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been charged by the English Football Association with violent conduct for elbowing an opponent during a Premier League game against West Ham.

The FA says the incident on Sunday was not seen by match officials but was caught on video.

If he is found guilty by a panel of former officials, Aguero could receive a three-match ban. The first game he would miss is against Manchester United in the Premier League on September 10.

The FA said yesterday that Aguero has until today to respond to the charge.

Aguero appeared to swing his left elbow toward Winston Reid's face in the 76th minute of City's 3-1 win over West Ham.
