Chelsea Football Club have been charged by the English Football Association after players and coaches surrounded the referee Lee Mason during their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in Wednesday’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are charged with failing to ensure their players “conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”.
The incident occurred when Mason blew for half-time as Chelsea were preparing to take a corner, with the score at 0-0.
The club have until 6pm on Tuesday, May 15 to respond to the charge.
Huddersfield took a shock lead through Laurent Depoitre before Marcos Alonso drew Chelsea level.
The draw was enough to guarantee Huddersfield safety from relegation to the Championship.
For Chelsea, they must beat Newcastle at St. James’ Park and hope Brighton beat Liverpool at Anfield for them to secure top four finish in the league.
