Chelsea have been fined Stg25,000 ($A47,000) by the Football Association after admitting a charge of failing to control their players in the 1-1 Premier League draw at Liverpool on August 28.

Referee Anthony Taylor sent off Chelsea defender Reece James after a handball on the goalline, with Mohamed Salah equalising from the penalty spot.

The Chelsea players were incensed by Taylor's decision to dismiss James, feeling the ball had deflected off the England player's thigh on to his arm.

A statement from the FA read that Chelsea "admitted failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during both the 48th minute of the first half and following the half-time whistle."

Kai Havertz's headed goal had put the visitors in front before Salah levelled from the spot.
