Premier League champions Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion have been charged by the FA for failing to control their players in Wednesday’s turbo-charged 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
“Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion have both been charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.
“The charge relates to an incident which occurred in or around the 58th minute of their fixture on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.
“Both clubs have until 6pm on 20 January 2016 to respond to the charge,” a statement from the FA read.
The most fractious moment of the game came in the 58th minute when Claudio Yacob of West Brom tripped Diego Costa, with referee Anthony Taylor failing to show the player a second yellow card, which would have seen him sent off.
The incident saw both sets of players crowding the referee, with Costa leading the charge. The Spain striker also confronted the referee on several occasions during the game.
