Man City fined 35,000 pounds for failing to control players

Manchester City has been fined 35,000 pounds by the English Football Association after they accepted a misconduct charge for the way their players reacted to a 50th minute penalty in the 1-1 premier league draw with Liverpool on 20th of March.

City were charged by the FA last week after their players surrounded referee Michael Oliver who had awarded Liverpool a penalty following a foul by Gael Clichy on Roberto Firmino.

Former city player James Milner converted the penalty after Clichy, who had raised his boot on Firmino, and David Silva were booked.

Some city players continued to remonstrate afterward. City equalized 18 minutes later through Sergio Aguero.

City, who are third in table, travel to sixth-placed arsenal on Sunday.
