The FA said:


It’s alleged that the defender used improper and/or insulting and/or abusive words and/or behaviour towards a match official in the tunnel after the game.”


James has until 29 September to respond to a charge of breaching FA rule E3.


James reportedly confronted referee Jarred Gillett after the 1-0 defeat by Villa at Stamford Bridge.


Right-back James picked up a hamstring problem in training last month having struggled with injuries throughout the 2022-23 campaign.
