Both clubs have been fined for
the behaviour of their players
in the moments following
Nemanja Matic’s red card in the
recent meeting between the
two sides at Upton Park Chelsea
and West Ham have both been
fined by the Football
Association for failing to
control their players during
their recent Premier League
clash.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been
forced to pay £50,000 while
the Irons will have to fork out
£40,000.

The recent meeting at Upton
Park – which the Hammers won
2-1 – descended into chaos in
the moments after the sending
off Nemanja Matic just prior to
half-time for two bookings.

West Ham were found guilty of
failing to control their players
in the 44th minute, while
Chelsea were culpable of the
same offence in the 45th
minute.

The FA’s statement read:

“Following an Independent
Regulatory Commission
hearing, West Ham United and
Chelsea have been fined
£40,000 and £50,000
respectively after both clubs
admitted an FA misconduct
charge.

“The charge was for failing to
ensure their players conducted
themselves in an orderly
fashion during the fixture
between the two sides on 24
October 2015.

“Both clubs were also severely
warned as to their future
conduct.”

In the same match, Jose
Mourinho was sent to the
stands at half-time after
confronting John Moss in his
dressing room during the
break.

The Portuguese has since
served a one-match stadium
ban for his actions, missing
Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat at Stoke
City last weekend.
