Arsenal and Chelsea Receive Heavy Punishment From FA

Arsenal Football Club and Chelsea have both been fined by the English Football Association for failing to control their players in a game between the two sides.

In that match which ended 2-0 in favour of the Blues, Gabriel Paulista and Diego Costa were involved in a bust-up which saw the former sent off while the latter went unpunished.

However, a post-match review of the incident by the FA made Gabriel's punishment reduced while Costa was banned for three domestic matches. Gabriel also had to pay a fine of £10,000.

Having meted out the necessary sanctions to the players, the FA has now moved on to the clubs who they have charged with 'improper conduct' and also accused of being unable to control their players.

Arsenal and Chelsea will for this reason pay fines of £30,000 and £40,000 respectively.
