The latest report have it that the West London outfit Chelsea have been fined by UEFA following the bad behaviour of their fans when they played Malmo in the Europa League in February away from home.

It would be recalled that the West London fans invaded the pitch during their trip to Sweden after their team won by 2-1 while their host fans also made the same crowd trouble by setting up fireworks. They were also fined £49,000.

However, the day was full with lots of drama as Belgium international Eden Hazard was also manhandled by a home supporter who ran into the pitch to request for his shirt. The Chelsea star had to let go of the shirt as the fan insisted.

Although, the Blues team have been able to secure qualification to the quarter-finals of the competition and it is their only hope of winning a title this season, having been eliminated from the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, the West London outfit have also lost it as far as the English Premier League title is concerned, knowing they only have the hope of breaking into the top-four but that is only possible if they are able to go past Man United and Arsenal for the spot.
