Chelsea and City fined after little bit of a tiff

7 months ago

Chelsea have been fined £100,000 and Manchester City must pay £35,000 after players from both teams clashed during their Premier League meeting at Etihad Stadium earlier this month.

Tempers flared at the end of Chelsea's 3-1 win, after City's Sergio Aguero was sent off for a tackle on David Luiz.

Aguero's team-mate Fernandinho was also dismissed, after grabbing Cesc Fabregas as the two teams confronted each other.

Chelsea had previously been warned they could face a points deduction.

The Premier League leaders have been fined six times since February 2015 for failing to control their players.

After the Blues were fined a record £375,000 - reduced to £290,000 on appeal - in the wake of an ill-tempered meeting with Tottenham in May, the Football Association appeal board warned "the time cannot be too far distant when... the only proper sanction is a points deduction".

However, manager Antonio Conte laughed off the possibility of a points deduction on Sunday, asking reporters if they were joking when asked if he thought the incident could harm the club's league standing.

The last top-flight teams to be docked points for disciplinary issues were Manchester United and Arsenal, in the wake of a brawl at Old Trafford in October 1990.








The thing that bugs me about these are the pitiful amounts clubs have to pay in fines. Both sides wouldn't miss a few million quid. Fine them according to their wealth imo. Imagine what the FA could do with 5 million quid in fines because two clubs had a bit of handbags. Imagine how many grassroots clubs would benefit from it

Money mean little or nothing to the Billioniare Boyz Club. Start hitting them with points debuctions and they will get the message.

I'll make them play in empty stadium for few games. That will hurt.

I just dont agree in principle with points deductions. Titles should be won and lost on the pitch not at FA HQ.

I agree with Ste..massive fines or maybe (for consistent and recidivist offences) threat of bans from Euro competitions [which again affects income and prestige!]

Something should be done but I don't think point deductions are the way to go, playing behind closed doors, banning every player involved by 1 game, the FA need to have a think cause fines don't work.
