LONDON (AP) - Chelsea and Tottenham have been fined a combined 600,000 pounds ($865,000) by the English Football Association for failing to control their players and officials in a heated Premier League match between the London clubs.

The FA said on Monday the clubs admitted to three breaches of FA regulations at the May 2 game at Stamford Bridge, with two incidents during the game before a mass melee near the dugouts after the final whistle involving players and coaches.

Chelsea was fined 375,000 pounds ($540,000) and Tottenham 225,000 pounds ($325,000). Both clubs were warned as to their future conduct.

Spurs collected nine yellow cards during the match, which was drawn 2-2 and ended their title challenge.
