Chelsea and Tottenham have had fines reduced on appeal following their fractious London derby in May, the Football Association has announced.

The Blues ended Spurs' title challenge and Leicester were crowned Premier League champions following a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge which featured 12 yellow cards and two brawls involving players and coaches from both sides.

Matters came to a head again at the full-time whistle when a melee in the tunnel resulted in Chelsea's interim manager Guus Hiddink being pushed to the ground.

Both clubs were subsequently charged with three counts of failing to control their players, while Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele was also handed a retrospective six-match ban for violent conduct after clawing his fingers down the face of Chelsea forward Diego Costa.

The fines have been reduced by £85,000 for Chelsea and £50,000 for Tottenham.
