Chelsea has bagged £25,000 fine punishment from FA for being unable to manage their players to be civil during an uprising in their 1-1 Premier League draw at Liverpool.

Referee Anthony Taylor gave a red card to an old defender Reece James after a goal-line handball, with Mohamed Salah equalising from the penalty spot.

The Chelsea players were not happy with  Taylor’s decision to dismiss James, with the Blues feeling the ball had deflected off the England star’s 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 28 August 2021,” read an FA statement.

“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.”

Kai Havertz’s headed goal had put Chelsea in front before Salah levelled from the spot.
