English Premier league clubs, West Ham and Chelsea have been fined £40,000 and £50,000 respectively by the Football Association after both clubs admitted misconduct charges.
The punishment follows the Hammers’ 2-1 win over their London rivals at Upton Park on 24 October.
The clubs were charged for “failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion” in West Ham’s 2-1 Premier League win, in which Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic was sent off, at Upton Park on October 24.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had already been fined £40,000 and handed a one-match stadium ban, which he served in Chelsea’s 1-0 loss at Stoke City last Saturday, for a tirade aimed at referee Jon Moss during half-time of the loss to West Ham.
An FA statement also confirmed both teams had been “severely warned” as to their future conduct.
