Chelsea Hammered With Double Count FA Charge As Thomas Tuchel’s Side Are Accused Of Failing To Control Their Players Against Liverpool


Chelsea has been hammered with two count charges from the Football Association for being unable to control their players during the 1-1 draw at Liverpool.

Thomas Tuchel’s side was angry over the referee’s decision to send Reece James out of the field following a handball he committed on the line.

Referee Anthony Taylor went over to the video assistant review monitor and immediately gave James a straight red card which, the FA allege, led to arguments with Chelsea players that extended beyond the half-time whistle.

In a statement the FA said: ‘Chelsea FC has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Saturday [28/08/21].

‘It is alleged that Chelsea FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 48th minute of the first half and following the half-time whistle.

‘Chelsea FC has until Friday [03/09/21] to provide a response to this charge.’
