Chelsea have been fined £20,000 by the Football Association after both players and coaches surrounded Lee Mason, the referee for the game, on last Wednesday at the eventual 1-1 Premier League draw with Huddersfield.
It was publicly announced today as they failed to behave properly, or, as the official statement read, “to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.”
They have accepted the charge for the mishappening, according to TalkSport.
This event occurred when Chelsea were awarded a corner but went on to blow for half-time prior to the execution as Mason adjudged the additional time had gone.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Cesc Fabregas and Antonio Rudiger were the first ones to question the decision. The worst part was Rudiger even had to be dragged away by Carlo Cudicini, assistant coach.
The draw led to Chelsea failing to qualify for the next season of the Champions League as they went home with a single point, instead of the desired three. However, they would still be two points short of Liverpool, who finished in fourth place.
