Chelsea and Arsenal fined for behavior of players
LONDON (AP) The English Football Association says it has fined Chelsea and Arsenal a total of 70,000 pounds ($107,000) ”for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion” during a Premier League match between the two teams at Stamford Bridge last month.
Chelsea has been fined 40,000 ($61,000) and Arsenal 30,000 ($46,000) for incidents from the 44th minute to the 47th of the game on Sept. 19, with both sides being warned about their future conduct.
Chelsea won the game 2-0 but the players clashed when Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista was shown a red card by referee Mike Dean following an incident with Diego Costa. The FA has since revoked the card.
