(Reuters) - Watford and Stoke City have been fined 25,000 pounds and 20,000 pounds respectively for failing to control their players during their Premier League meeting last month, the English Football Association said on Thursday.
The two clubs were charged after a clash between players in the final minutes of Stoke’s 1-0 victory at Vicarage Road.
Watford captain Troy Deeney grabbed Stoke midfielder Joe Allen’s face and neck, with match referee Michael Oliver showing a yellow card to both players.
Deeney has been since banned for three matches for violent conduct.
