Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been fined £375,000 ($540,000) and £225,000 ($324,000) respectively after admitting to failing to control their players.

Players from both sides clashed on a number of occasions during the volatile 2-2 draw between the London rivals at Stamford Bridge on Monday 2 May in a derby fixture that ended Tottenham's Premier League title challenge.

Both clubs have admitted to three separate breaches of misconduct. A short statement from the FA read: "Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been fined £375,000 and £225,000 respectively after both clubs admitted three breaches of FA Rule E20 for failing to control their players and/or officials.

"It follows incidents which occurred in the 45th and 87th minutes and also at the end of their fixture at Stamford Bridge on Monday 2 May 2016. Prior to this fixture, Chelsea had breached FA Rule E20 on four separate occasions and Tottenham Hotspur twice since November 2014.

"Following the Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, both clubs were also warned as to their future conduct."

Tottenham also received an automatic £25,000 fine in the aftermath of the game after nine of their players were shown yellow cards – a Premier League record. Mousa Dembele was also handed a retrospective six-match ban after he admitted to a violent conduct charge after clashing with Diego Costa in what looked like an eye-gouging incident.

Chelsea picked up the larger of the fines having now failed to control their players on five occasions since November 2014.

Tottenham led 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on the night before tempers began to boil over on the stroke of half-time. Spurs full-back Danny Rose and Chelsea's Brazil international Willian clashed in an incident that also saw Mauricio Pochettino attempt to act as peacemaker.

Following Eden Hazard's 83rd minute equaliser, Tottenham players lost their discipline, with four of their players picking up yellow cards in the final five minutes of the match.
