Chelsea attacked by the FA in players scrum during the Liverpool match

Chelsea has been officially charged by the FA following the incident that occurred in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool last weekend.

Blues right-back Reece James received a direct red card and received his marching orders after his punt off the line was deemed intentional handball by the England international.

Mohamed Salah converted the subsequent penalty, and as Jordan Henderson ran to collect the ball, there was a run-in with Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy, who was photographed on video trying to frustrately clear the ball after being hit. Instead, Mendy kicked Henderson and an eventual encounter between the two players erupted into a scrum that involved multiples from each side, including César Azpilicueta, the aforementioned Mendy & Henderson, Romelu Lukaku, Andy Robertson, Diogo Jota and Jorginho.

According to the charges brought against Chelsea, the Blues have until September 3 to get an answer.

The reaction from the fans at Chelsea camp is one of frustration and anger, which probably should have been expected.

While the debate will continue to revolve around whether or not Reece James’ offense was worth a direct red card, there is already one. online petition doing the rounds on Twitter that point to match referee Anthony Taylor, citing that Liverpool committed thirteen fouls throughout the procedure and was unable to have a single yellow card produced in his direction.

Whether or not Taylor deserves direct criticism for his overall performance remains to be seen, but it is curious that Liverpool was also not charged for his actions after the Mohamed Salah penalty, considering it was Reds captain Jordan Henderson who began the union with Édouard Mendy after the initial incident.
