Chelsea and Tottenham handed substantial fines for Stamford Bridge fracas

The Football Association has hit Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur with massive fines.

Players and officials from both clubs clashed in front of and inside the tunnel after the final whistle of the dramatic 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on May 2 and substantial sanctions have now been delivered.

Chelsea have copped a £375,000 fine while Spurs will pay £225,000 after the London pair admitted three breaches of failing to control their players and/or officials.

The after-match fracas was sparked by spot-fires throughout the game, which involved Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele eye-gouging Diego Costa early in the second half, while some players were caught up in a brawl after Eden Hazard's equaliser in the 83rd minute.
