The QPR midfielder was sent off against Manchester City

QPR midfielder Joey Barton has accepted one of the FA charges laid against him but has denied a second.

The 29-year-old accepted the charge regarding his kick on Sergio Aguero but denied the charge relating to an alleged headbutt towards Vincent Kompany.

“Joey Barton has accepted an FA charge against him for violent conduct against Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero,” the FA statement read.

“The Queens Park Rangers player has denied a second charge of alleged violent conduct against Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany.

“The player has requested a personal hearing, the date of which has yet to be set.

“Both charges against Barton are in relation to Sunday’s match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

“Following the player’s dismissal in the 54th minute of the fixture, there followed two incidents involving Aguero and Kompany.

“As Barton had already been dismissed, both of these incidents fell outside of the jurisdiction of the referee.”
