The Football Association has given Manchester United and Manchester City until Wednesday to reply to a request for observations following reports of ugly scenes after City's 2-1 win at Old Trafford.
United manager Jose Mourinho and City goalkeeper Ederson are reported to have had a confrontation after the game, while it is claimed Mourinho had milk and water thrown at him from the away dressing room.
The home side is understood to have taken exception to City's post-match celebrations and an altercation - involving up to 20 players and staff in the crowded corridor leading to the dressing rooms - is believed to have left City coach Mikel Arteta with a head wound.
Referee Michael Oliver did not witness the scenes, so the FA has not received a report on the matter from him.

Manchester City are prone to committing a "tactical foul", according to Jose Mourinho.
On the eve of Sunday's Manchester derby, United boss Mourinho has been talking about how Pep Guardiola's attacking City side are able to recover defensively.
The blue side of Manchester has become synonymous with free-flowing football under Guardiola, particularly in this, the second season of his tenure.
Mourinho is a fan, but reckons committing fouls on purpose helps their mastery.
"It is a strategy (City) have," he told a number of national newspapers.
"They attack with a lot of players. When they lose the ball, they are many times unbalanced in numbers, they have lots of people surrounding the ball area and have a very strong - and this is a great quality - transition in the next few seconds after they lose the ball, and many times they need what is called a tactical foul.
"Then it is up to the referee to analyse and make a decision about it, but I cannot speak about that."
While Mourinho's comments are not hugely inflammatory, they come a day after he said it only takes a "little bit of wind" to send City's players to the floor.
