Fulham have been fined £27,5000 for failing to control their players following Joao Felix’s tackle on Kenny Tete in the SW6 derby earlier this month.

The club admitted a Football Association charge of ‘failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion’ and requested an individual hearing. Several Fulham players surrounded referee David Coote after Felix’s late lunge on Tete that ultimately saw the Chelsea debutant sent off.

The independent regulatory commission has imposed the fine – and will release its written report shortly. Fulham won the derby for the first time in seventeen years thanks to Carlos Vinicius’ second half header.
