The Football Association has forced Chelsea to pay the fine of £20,000 after accepting a charge of failing to control their players during Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town.

On Wednesday 9 May, Chelsea players were unhappy when referee Lee Mason awarded them a corner at Stamford Bridge.

However, the referee eventually declared that it’s the halftime before Willian was able to take the set piece.

The then-Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta, along with Cesc Fabregas and Antonio Rudiger have immediately led the protests against the match officials.

“Chelsea have been fined £20,000 after accepting a charge for failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion,” read an FA statement.

“The incident occurred at half-time during the game against Huddersfield Town on Wednesday, May 9.”


Chelsea missed out on Champions League qualification, as the West-London side ended the season fifth with five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
