Arsenal midfielder Alex Song has accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct and will now serve a three-match suspension.
The charge relates to an incident during the Gunners' draw at Newcastle on Saturday, when the 23-year-old appeared to stamp on the leg of opponent Joey Barton.
Both clubs were also charged with failing to control their players and have until Thursday to respond.
