England Football Association has charged Manchester City and Chelsea for failing to control their players during Saturday’s Premier League match.
In good news for Chelsea though, Cesc Fabregas has avoided becoming the third football player to receive a red card from the ill-tempered match that Chelsea won three- one, on Saturday.
The Blues feared that if referee Anthony Taylor’s match report made no mention of his slap on Fernandinho during an injury-time bust-up involving more than thirty players, coaching staff and stewards on the pitch then retrospective action could have taken place.
Fernandinho responded by shoving Fabregas over an advertising hoarding and almost into the crowd as the melee threatened to get out of control.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas will not face any further action in relation to an incident involving City’s Fernandinho.
