Chelsea, Spurs handed heavy fines

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been handed heavy fines for failing to control their players during an ill-tempered Premier League match this month, the FA said on Monday.

Chelsea were fined 375,000 pounds (€475,000) and Spurs 225,000 pounds (€285,000) following incidents during and after the game at Stamford Bridge.

Nine Spurs players were booked, a Premier League record, along with three from Chelsea, who fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

The result ended Tottenham’s hopes of winning the title and handed the trophy to Leicester City.

Both clubs were warned as to their future conduct.
