Chelsea and Tottenham: Football Association charges clubs right after fiery draw

Chelsea and Tottenham have already been charged by the Football Association with 3 offences of failing to handle their players and officials each for the duration of and following Monday's match.

Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele has also been charged with an alleged act of violent conduct throughout the 2-2 draw.

The FA mentioned Dembele's alleged eye-gouge on Diego Costa is extra serious than a regular charge of violent conduct.

That signifies a three-game ban "is clearly insufficient" if he is found guilty.

Dembele, 28, has till 18:00 BST on Thursday to respond for the charge, though Chelsea and Tottenham have until 18:00 on Monday.

There have been 12 yellow cards throughout the match, which saw two mass brawls, as Tottenham's hopes of winning the Premier League had been ended.
