Chelsea fined by FA for Hammers discipline

Cjosehelsea have been automatically fined £25,000 and asked for their observations on three disciplinary incidents that occurred in Saturday’s 2-1 result at the Boleyn ground.

An FA spokesman said on Monday that the automatic fine would be implemented because six players received a yellow card in the Premier League game. One of them, Nemanja Matic, was sent off, making seven cautions in all.

Chelsea’s coach Silvino Louro and manager Jose Mourinho who were both sent to the stands during the game likely to bring further sanctions as Mourinho had a suspended touch line ban hanging over him after he criticised an official when Chelsea lost to Southampton.

There is also a further suggestion backed up by video coverage that Chelsea players surrounded an official during the game in breach of a regulation which allows no more than two players to approach an official. West Ham were fined £50,000 by the FA in relation to the behaviour of their players during the 3-0 victory over Liverpool in September following the dismissal of Mark Noble.

The FA await referee Jon Moss’ report before deciding on further punishment against Chelsea.

The Premier League will also write to Chelsea about a breach of the regulation that clubs must fulfil media obligations after a game.Neither Mourinho nor any of his coaches attended the traditional post-match news conference at West Ham. The normal sanction is a warning or a fine.

  1. Sounds like the incredible sulk and Chelsea are just going to get a wrist slap to me,
    Surely they could have waited for the full report before saying anything,
    I hope I’m wrong but if they don’t get done for encroaching the ref and throw the book at moaninio then the FA are bent !!!!!!!

    Shearer in the sun column didn’t mention us once but the whole column based on mourinio
    What a cretin of a bloke !!!!!!
    Moaninio wins even though his team lost ????? You could not make this shi£ up!!

    • Andy Jacobs [bitter blue] on talk sport recons we cant sustain this form throughout the season and we are fitter than other clubs because we started early, when the hell are these highly paid so called experts going to give us some credit? they cant cant abide our current success…..

  2. I was at the game and saw Mourinho walk right into Bilic’s technical area to try to get to the linesman after the Fabrigas ‘goal’ was deemed offside. No-one has even mentioned it, but on the MOTD highlights, you can see it, even if the shot cuts off quickly and doesn’t show the ground markings. Bilic took no notice and concentrated on what was going on on the pitch – what a complete gent and total contrast Bilic is. He could easily have got sucked into a slagging match, but skillfully avoided such goading. But as for Mourinho, just who the **** does he think he is? His arrogance beggars belief. Time after time he has put his foot in it this season. If I were a Chelsea fan, I would be wincing. He is practically making Chelsea a laughing stock…there are so many incidences this season,especially in the last month where he is an outright embarrassment…. He plays the hard done by victim, when in fact he has had a fairer crack of the whip than many others. Look at the 2 penalties that SHOULD have been awarded to Southampton v Chelsea: Mourinho “I don’t want to talk about that” – Mourinho is an ungracious, biased, ungrateful pra*. They all used to say he uses top psychology as tactics. Oh really? He is behaving like an adolescent spoilt bra*. Ironically, I am not particularly into him being given the sack; I would like to see him eat humble pie, get with the programme and stop making the Prem look farcicle…I’m not into all this hire and fire of managers…but I strongly suspect I am a minority of 1 !!
    Meanwhile, I am quite happy for the Hammers not to get too many headlines; lets keep mainly under the radars! I wanted other managers to replace big Sam, but I admit I got that wrong, and am now well delighted with Bilic; I think he is VERY shrewd on all levels. COYI
