Albrighton was shown a straight red card in the second half at Selhurst Park after a poor challenge on Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

Following his dismissal, the 28-year-old appeared to direct abusive language towards referee Mike Dean.

The FA said that Albrighton had until 17:00 GMT on Thursday to respond to the charge.
