Chelsea, West Ham hit with FA fines after admitting misconduct

The Football Association has fined Chelsea £50,000 and West Ham £40,000 for failing to control their players.
Both clubs admitted misconduct charges around their fixture on October 24.
An FA statement read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, West Ham United and Chelsea have been fined £40,000 and £50,000 respectively after both clubs admitted an FA misconduct charge.
“The charge was for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the fixture between the two sides on 24 October 2015.
“Both clubs were also severely warned as to their future conduct.”
A stormy contest at Upton Park saw Nemanjka Matic dismissed for two bookable offences.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was also sent to the stands along with assistant Silvino Louro.
West Ham were found guilty of failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the match, with Chelsea guilty of the same offence one minute later.
