Chelsea and Leicester were fined £ 22,500 each for failing to control their players in the final stages of their Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

A mass brawl broke out just before the final whistle on May 18 when Thomas Tuchel’s side defeated the Foxes 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to make up for their final FA Cup loss to Brendan Rodgers’ team just three days earlier .

In stoppage time, tempers flared as Ricardo Pereira tarnished former Leicester defender Ben Chilwell and the fracas left many players and substitutes on both sides.

Both clubs had until May 25 to respond to the FA’s indictment, but admitted to breaking the rules.
