It was less of a football game and more of a karate practice on Eden Hazard in Monday night’s FA Cup clash between Chelsea and Manchester United.

Manchester United have been fined £20,000 by the FA after accepting a misconduct charge.

The Red Devils were charged for failing to control their players in their FA Cup defeat to Chelsea on Monday night.

Ander Herrera was sent off in the 35th minute after fouling Eden Hazard, which earned him a second booking, leading to his dismissal. United players surrounded the referee Michael Oliver after the decision which led the FA to punish them for improper conduct.

A statement on the FA’s official website said: “Manchester United have been fined £20,000 after the club admitted an FA Cup 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.”
