Chelsea And Tottenham Fined Over Clashes

Chelsea and Tottenham have been fined £375 000 ($540 000, 476 000 euros) and £225 000 respectively for failing to control their players during a feisty 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

 

The tempestuous London derby boiled over as Chelsea came from two goals down to secure the point that ended Tottenham’s hopes of winning the Premier League.

 

Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele was handed a six-match ban after gouging Chelsea striker Diego Costa’s eye during one of several ugly mass brawls.

 

“Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been fined £375 000 and £225 000 respectively after both clubs admitted three breaches of FA Rule E20 for failing to control their players and/or officials,” a Football Association statement read.
