Clichy’s teammates came to his aid and protested the call before and after James Milner converted the penalty.
Clichy was shown a yellow card, while David Silva was also cautioned for disputing the official’s decision.
A brief statement on the FA’s website read: “It is alleged that in or around the 50th minute of the fixture, the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.”
The club has until 6 p.m. Thursday to respond to the charge.
