The recent reports has revealed that the FA has fined Chelsea £25,000 in what was described as failure to control their players during the 1-1 draw vs. Liverpool at Anfield.
Recall that the Blues played Liverpool in the EPL before the international break, although match ended with the two teams sharing the three points, it was, however, marred by some drama by the Blues player.
One of the highlights was in the first half, as it came to a close, referee Anthony Taylor sent off defender Reece James after a handball on the goalline.
Taylor awarded a penalty, which Mohamed Salah put away to make it 1-1.
The offical’s deciosn, however, got Chelsea players furious as they argued that the ball had deflected off James’ thigh onto his arm.
“Chelsea FC has been fined £25,000 for two breaches of FA rule E20.1 which occurred during their Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Saturday, August 28, 2021.
The club admitted failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during both the 48th minute of the first half and following the half-time whistle,” an official FA statement read.
