Chelsea’s next game is away to Leeds United at the Elland Road on Sunday.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte were both issued a red card after the 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham last Sunday.

The FA has handed Tuchel a fine of £35,000 and also a one-match touchline ban, while Antonio Conte has been fined £15,000 without a touchline ban.

Both managers admitted to improper conduct charges following several clashes during and after the game.

While Conte wasn’t handed a touchline ban, Tuchel was given a one-match touchline ban.

Tuchel would however wait for further clarification on the status of his one-match ban, amid the new disciplinary process with the independent commission’s involvement.

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch, admitted to the media on Friday that he would be disappointed to see Tuchel on the touchline this weekend.

“He won’t be there, right? Are they saying he might be able to be on the bench?” said Marsch, ahead of the FA ruling.

“That doesn’t seem right does it? If you get a red card, you’re out of the match.

“I will be disappointed if they allow him to be on the bench.

“There is a simple rule in football, whether it’s soccer or football, if you get a red card you can’t play the next match.”
