The Blues were angered when Lee Mason awarded the hosts a corner but then blew for half-time before it was taken by Willian. Captain Cesar Azpilicueta, midfielder Cesc Fabregas and defender Antonio Rudiger led the protests. "Chelsea have been fined ÂŁ20,000 after accepting a charge for failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," an FA statement said. The Blues criticised Huddersfield for time-wasting during the game, the result of which hit their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season. A 3-0 loss at Newcastle on Sunday ensured Chelsea finished fifth but Antonio Conte's side could yet end the season with a trophy if they win Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United.
