Chelsea and Everton charged by FA


The FA have charged both Chelsea Football Club and Everton Football Club after they failed to control their players during last night’s game.

The game ended 1-0 to the hosts at Stamford Bridge, but just moments before the winning goal, a tussle broke out between the two sides which ended with Gareth Barry being dismissed for a second yellow card.

Branislav Ivanovic was also in the headlines after he appeared to bite, head-butt and choke an opponent, but the FA have confirmed no punishment will be served.

“Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic will not face any further action in relation to an incident involving Everton’s James McCarthy in the 86th minute.”

When talking about the two clubs and the incident, the FA said: “Both Chelsea and Everton have been charged by The FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

“It follows an incident in the 86th minute of Wednesday night’s game at Stamford Bridge.”

Both clubs now have until the 17 February 2015 to respond to the charge.
