Chelsea accuse of 2 counts after failing to control their players following 1-1 draw to Liverpool.
The Chelsea players were angered by Taylor’s decision to send off James, with the Blues feeling the ball had deflected off the England star’s thigh onto his arm.
The FA has given Chelsea until Friday to respond to the charges.
‘Chelsea FC has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Saturday,’ read on an FA statement.
‘It is alleged that Chelsea FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 48th minute of the first half, and following the half-time whistle.
Speaking after the incident, both Thomas Tuchel and Jürgen Klopp agreed the referee was too harsh.
‘Double punishment is always super hard and it was a bit of a spoiler, but I think it’s the rule now if the referee says he denies a clear goal with his hand – Tuchel said
‘I don’t like these early red cards in general, not just when it’s us but when I’m watching on TV, because for me it spoils the game.
‘Nobody wants to see that for 45 minutes, they want to see a high-level game.
‘He checked only the image which showed the contact and then it was a clear decision.
‘On the bench we saw also the whole movement and you saw it was a deflection at short distance, it comes off his hip to his arm, the arm is not in a super unnatural arm position.’
Chelsea will now have until Friday to respond to the FA over the charges.
