Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been handed heavy fines for failing to control their players during their  ill-tempered English Premier League match on 2 May, the FA said on Monday.

Chelsea were fined 375,000 pounds ($540,000) and Spurs 225,000 pounds following incidents during and after the game at Stamford Bridge.

Nine Spurs players were booked, a Premier League record, along with three from Chelsea, who fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

The result ended Tottenham’s hopes of winning the title and handed the trophy to Leicester City.

Both clubs were warned as to their future conduct.
