Carlo Ancelotti will be in the dugout at Stamford Bridge on Sunday after escaping a touchline ban following the red card he received when his team, Everton faced Manchester United but will pay a fine of £8,000 after accepting an FA charge of improper conduct for his behaviour on March 1.

The former Chelsea manager confronted referee Chris Kavanagh after his side controversially saw a late winner ruled out for offside against Manchester United at Goodison Park.

The FA stated that Ancelotti has accepted the charges against misconduct and has been fined £8,000.

“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 FA stated.

“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.”

Everton will face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, which will mark the return of Ancelotti to Stamford Bridge where he won League and Cup double in his first season.
