Carlo Ancelotti will be in the dugout at Stamford Bridge on Sunday after escaping a ban following his red card against Manchester United.
The Toffees boss confronted referee Chris Kavanagh after his side controversially saw a goal ruled out for offside against Manchester United.
The Italian has accepted an FA charge of improper conduct for his behaviour on March 1 and has been fined £8,000.
FA statement read:
“Carlo Ancelotti has been fined £8,000 for a breach of FA Rule E3 during the Premier League fixture against Manchester United FC on Sunday 1 March 2020.

Ancelotti, speaking after the incident, stated:
“I asked for an explanation after the game. There was a misunderstanding on the pitch and he sent me off. After that I spoke with him calmly in the dressing room. I want to keep our conversation private and now he will make a report for the FA and we will see.”
Everton are back to action on Sunday as they are set to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
