Chelsea have been charged with failure to control their players following Michael Essien´s dismissal at Derby on Saturday.

Referee Andre Marriner was confronted by Blues players, including England skipper John Terry, in the wake of Essien´s stoppage time sending-off.

The 24-year-old saw his appeal against his straight red card for a push on Kenny Miller rejected and will now serve a three-match ban, but his club could face further punishment.
