The FA said Villa had been fined 60,000 pounds for the behaviour of players and club officials during and after a 1-0 league defeat by Leicester City earlier this month.

Villa had Ciaran Clark sent off while Leicester, who were fined 20,000 pounds for their part in the incidents, had Matty James dismissed.

The Midlands club were fined 20,000 and 30,000 pounds earlier this season for failing to control their players in games against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively.
