Chelsea and West Brom have been charged by the Football Association for “failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion” during Wednesday’s 2-2 Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge.
The charge comes as a result of the reaction by players on both sides in the 58th minute of the match, following a challenge from West Brom midfielder Claudio Yacob on Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
Each club has until Wednesday, January 20 to appeal the charge.
A statement released by the FA said: “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 13 January 2016.
“Both clubs have until 6pm on 20 January 2016 to respond to the charge.”
