Chelsea handed £100,000 fine for Etihad Stadium brawl… Man City to pay just £35,000

An FA statement read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Manchester City and Chelsea have been fined £35,000 and £100,000 respectively after both admitted a breach of FA Rule E20(a).

“The two clubs were charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

“It followed an incident in the 95th minute of their game on Saturday 3 December 2016.”

A point deduction was mooted for Chelsea after repeat offences in the last two years, but the FA decided against that punishment.
