Chelsea admit charge

Chelsea have admitted an FA charge of failing to control their players during the Premier League game against Manchester United in September.

The charge relates to the conduct of Chelsea players towards referee Mike Dean following the dismissal of midfielder Mikel John Obi.

Assistant first-team coach Steve Clarke has also admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words towards the match officials at the end of the game at Old Trafford, which United won 2-0.

Both the club and Clarke have requested personal hearings which will be scheduled in due course.
