FA Might Not Doke Chelsea Points
Chelsea points are unlikely to be deducted following the me-lee with Manchester City. This is because of their previous disciplinary misconduct with Spurs’ players as well.
All 22 players even with some from the coaching staff got involved in the brawl after Sergio’s tackle on the Chelsea defender David Luiz.
An FA commission will consider what sanction to impose after Chelsea players were involved in a brawl with City players following a tackle on David Luiz by Sergio Aguero.
Chelsea face the more severe sanction, having been charged and fined with a breach of the FA E20 Rule covering the behaviour of players on five separate occasions.

Chelsea points will not be reduced but face the more severe sanction, having been charged and fined with a breach of the FA E20 Rule
After the most recent fine, following their ill-tempered derby again, Chelsea were warned they could face a point deduction for what the commission called their “abysmal” recording regarding Rule E20.
However, Newslibre believes that the nature of the fracas, started by Aguero’s tackle on Luiz, means it’s highly unlikely that a points deduction will be considered by the independent panel.
Following their 1-0 win over West Brom on Sunday, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said: “For me, if you are involved in a situation and the fault is not your one, you must pay? Why?
“I don’t understand this. Manchester City and Chelsea, at the end of the game, my players tried to keep their calm. I don’t understand this. I repeat, I don’t understand this.
“We are trying to improve in all aspects, also this. For this reason”, I reply, ” you must be joking. You must be honest and understand which team is at fault.”
For a couple of years we have seen such players misconduct on pitch in regards to an awful tackle with no fair referee’s call over the incidents regardless.
Chelsea and Man City are not the only clubs that have ever gone under such disciplinary action. Arsenal and Man United have faced such consequences but this did not deter the teams from improving and actually the two teams have become more mature in their games.
Are Chelsea points worth all this? Lets wait and find how how the Premier League handles this drama.
