Chelsea were fined £100,000 for a mass player confrontation despite claims their “culture changed” under manager Antonio Conte, the Football Association has revealed.

An independent commission has disclosed why Chelsea and Manchester City were fined following a fracas on the pitch last month, in written reasons published by the FA.

Both clubs admitted a charge for failing to control their players in added time of the Premier League game on December 3 last year, but requested a personal hearing with the independent commission.

Chelsea won 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium, with Manchester City’s Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero sent off during the fracas.

Chelsea were fined £100,000 and City sanctioned £35,000 for the same incident.

“The commission was not unanimous as to which party actually caused the mass confrontation,” ruled the panel, chaired by Gareth Farrelly.

“There was considerable deliberation as to whether the Sergio Aguero tackle [on David Luiz, which led to his sending-off] was the primary instigator of the incident or whether the Nathaniel Chalobah push [in the aftermath] was responsible.”

The panel, which also included Udo Onwere and Ifeanyi Odogwu, decided by a majority that the nature of Aguero’s tackle was the main reason for the confrontation.
