Chelsea to Finally Get 7 Points Deduction – Massive Boost for Tottenham & Man City

Chelsea have been brilliant in the Premier League under the management of Antonio Conte and the Blues currently have a 10 point lead over their closest rivals Tottennham Hotspur.

However, that lead will be cut down to only three points because the Stamford Bridge club are going to get 7 points deducted.

Chelsea players made a habit of causing fuss on the football field for all the wrong reasons, especially under the management of former boss Jose Mourinho.

Unfortunately, they have not been able to change under Conte as well. Back in December 2016, Chelsea players were involved in a brawl with Pep Guardiola’s men the Etihad.

The PL leaders were able to avoid points deduction at that moment and were fined £100,000. On the other hand, City were fined £35,000.

After a long and careful consideration to the case, the FA has decided to further penalize the Blues, who will now get a deduction of 7 points from their total and that would be a huge boost for their title rivals Tottenham and Man City.

The Sky Blues were able to avoid the deduction because their track record is fine but that of Chelsea has been absolutely terrible.

That brawl with City players meant that for the fifth time in over 19 months, Chelsea had to face FA’s disciplinary chiefs for failing to control their stars. Moreover, further deliberation has confirmed that Chelsea players started the entire drama by reacting to Aguero’s tackle (on Luis) in an ugly manner. Hence, it was decided to increase the penalty.

The governing body has come up with this punishment three months after the incident took place but in all honesty, the decision is fair and makes complete sense, only on April Fools’ Day.
