Fulham are facing a Football Association charge of failing to control their players following Joao Felix’s sending off in last week’s derby victory over Chelsea.

Several members of Marco Silva’s side surrounded referee David Coote after Felix’s lunge at Kenny Tete in the 57th minute of the Craven Cottage clash.

A statement from the FA released earlier this afternoon read:

‘Fulham Football Club has been charged with breaching FA Rule E20.1 during its Premier League game against Chelsea Football Club on Thursday 12 January 2023. It’s alleged that Fulham Football Club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 57th minute, and the club has until Thursday 19 January 2023 to respond.”
