Leeds charged for fracas at Chelsea after late penalty incident in Premier League match


Leeds have been charged with failing to control their players following an injury-time incident in last weekend’s 3-2 Premier League defeat at Chelsea.

Leeds players reacted furiously when referee Chris Kavanagh awarded a late spot-kick after Mateusz Klich brought down Antonio Rudiger in the box.

The FA said in a statement: “Leeds United FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 after its Premier League match against Chelsea FC on Saturday.

“It is alleged that Leeds United FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion when they surrounded the match referee in the 93rd minute.”

Leeds have been given until Thursday to respond to the charge.
