Chelsea and Leicester charged after players’ combat


Chelsea and Leicester City have been charged by the Football Association (FA) after a fight broke out between players and staff from both sides during Tuesday’s Premier League encounter in London.

The two PL sides met again at Stamford Bridge following Leicester’s FA Cup triumph over the weekend at Wembley against Chelsea.

The midweek clash, which Chelsea won 2-1 was key to their hopes of finishing in the top four to qualify for the Champions League next campaign.

“It is alleged that both clubs failed to ensure their players and /or club officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour during the 93rd minute,” said the FA on Thursday.

The clubs have until 25 May to respond to the charge.
