Chelsea has been charged by FA for failing to control their players in the Liverpool draw.
The Blues have until Friday to respond to two charges from the Football Association where the Chelsea players surrounded referee Anthony Taylor and continued their complaints after the half-time whistle was blown.
This happened when Reece James was shown a red card for deliberately handling the ball from the goal line which was later converted by Mo Salah.
FA alleges that the arguments with Chelsea players extended beyond the half-time whistle.
In a statement, the FA said: ‘Chelsea FC has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Saturday [28/08/21].
‘It is alleged that Chelsea FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 48th minute of the first half and following the half-time whistle.
‘Chelsea FC has until Friday [03/09/21] to provide a response to this charge.’
