Carlo Ancelotti escapes Chelsea ban but hit with FA fine

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.
"The Everton FC manager admitted that his language and/or behaviour on the field of play at the end of the fixture amounted to improper conduct and also accepted the standard penalty."
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. Source- Evening Standard
