Haaland | The FA may charge the City striker for his rage following Manchester City’s 3-3 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.
Dejan Kulusevski equalized for Spurs in the 90th minute at the Etihad, with the hosts denied a potentially game-winning chance deep into stoppage time.
Emerson Royal brought down Haaland on the halfway line, but he got to his feet and threaded a ball through for Jack Grealish.
The England international appeared to be through on goal with only the goalkeeper to beat, but referee Simon Hooper blew his whistle and gave City a free kick.
Haaland was enraged by the decision, yelling angrily at Hooper before storming off the field.
Shortly after the game, the Norway international tweeted ‘WTF’ after sharing a video of the incident.

Haaland was given a yellow card for losing his cool on the field, but he could face further punishment if the FA considers his social media post to be a violation of Rule E3.1, which governs social media comments and media remarks.
After the Gunners’ controversial defeat to Newcastle United in early November, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was charged with a breach of the same rule.
Pep Guardiola defended his striker’s post-match reaction.
‘His reaction was the same for ten players,’ City manager said. ‘Because it is against the rules to speak with the referees or fourth officials, we should have had ten players sent off today. He’s a little dissatisfied.
‘Even the referee — if he played for Man City today, he’d be disappointed in that action, I’m sure.
‘I make mistakes, and so do the players. When Erling went down, the ref said “play on,” and after making the pass, he called a timeout.
‘I’m not going to criticize him. On the touchline, I occasionally lose my mind; my gestures are inappropriate, but we didn’t draw for that. Spurs are pleased with a point; we are less so.’
