The Football Association has charged Chelsea for failing to control their players during the 2-0 defeat away at Manchester United on Sunday.
Assistant boss Steve Clarke has also been charged with using abusive and/or insulting words towards officials.

Chelsea were incensed by referee Mike Dean's decision to send off Nigerian midfielder Mikel Jon Obi in the first half for a challenge on Patrice Evra.

Chelsea and Clarke have until 12 October to respond to the charges.

Chelsea had contested Mikel's red card, but the FA rejected their appeal and his three-match ban was upheld.

England captain John Terry appears to have escaped punishment, after he appeared to grab Dean's red card as he was sending Mikel off.

Reports suggested Dean had included Terry's actions in his official report, but only Chelsea and Clarke have been charged by the FA.
