EPL take Decision on Deducting Points from Chelsea after Leicester City Brawl


Chelsea have escaped a possible points deduction, after their players were involved in a brawl with some Leicester City stars, during a Premier League clash.

Instead, the FA has decided to fine both clubs £22,500.

Thomas Tuchel’s men won 2-1, to avenge their FA Cup final defeat. But tempers flared between the players, following Ricardo Pereira’s tackle on Ben Chilwell.

Players and coaching staff clashed on the touchline, with fears Chelsea could face a point deduction for the incident for repeated offences.

But a FA spokesperson said: “Chelsea and Leicester City have been fined £22,500 each after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture on Tuesday 18 May 2021.

“Both clubs admitted they failed to ensure their players and club officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from provocative behaviour during the 93rd minute of the fixture.”
