Chelsea and Manchester City have been fined by the premier league for unable to control their players during their last encounter. Aguero’s tackle on Luiz set up the brawl that involved nearly 20 players from both teams. Aguero and Fernandinho were given straight red.
Chelsea have been fined £100,000 and Manchester City have also been fined £35,000 for their inability to control their players.
The Premier League leaders have been fined six times since February 2015 for failing to control their players.
After the Blues were fined £375,000 which was later reduced to £290,000 on appeal – in the wake of an ill-tempered meeting with Tottenham in May, the Football Association appeal board warned “the time cannot be too far distant when… the only proper sanction is a points deduction”.
