Manchester United have been
fined £20,000 by the Football
Association after accepting a
charge of failing to control their
players during Monday's FA Cup
defeat at Chelsea.
United's run in the competition was
ended at Stamford Bridge by Jose
Mourinho's old club on a night
when Spaniard Ander Herrera was
dismissed in the 35th minute for a
second caution following a foul on
Eden Hazard.
Several United players surrounded
referee Michael Oliver after he
brandished the red card at Herrera
and that earned the club a
misconduct charge, and the
standard punishment of £20,000
has now been applied.
If United had challenged the charge
and it had been proven, the fine
would have gone up to £30,000.
An FA statement read: "Manchester
United have been fined £20,000
after the club admitted an FA
misconduct charge and accepted
the standard penalty.
"It relates to a breach of FA rule
E20(a) for failing to ensure its
players conducted themselves in an
orderly fashion in or around the
35th minute of their Emirates FA
Cup quarter-final against Chelsea
on Monday 13 March 2017."
Herrera himself will miss this
weekend's game against
Middlesbrough along with West
Brom's visit to Old Trafford after
the international break as it was his
second dismissal of the campaign.
United are also without Zlatan
Ibrahimovic for both of those
fixtures after the Swede received a
retrospective punishment when his
elbow caught Bournemouth's
Tyrone Mings in the face.
