Chelsea have admitted a Football Association charge that their players failed to "conduct themselves in an orderly fashion" against Derby last month.

The charge relates to the behaviour of the London club´s players towards referee Andre Marriner after he sent off Michael Essien in injury-time of the game at Pride Park on November 24.

The Ghanaian, who came on as a late substitute in the game, was handed a straight red card after apparently catching Rams striker Kenny Miller in the face with his arm.
