West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has requested a personal hearing after denying a Football Association misconduct charge in relation to comments made to the media following the FA Cup third round replay against Manchester United.

Allardyce had until Wednesday afternoon to respond to the charge and the FA has confirmed his denial.
