Manchester United have been fined £20,000 by the Football Association for misconduct during their FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Chelsea on Monday.

The Red Devils saw Ander Herrera booked twice as Jose Mourinho's men were punished for persistent fouls on Eden Hazard, going on to lose 1-0 through a goal from N'Golo Kante.

Several United stars surrounded referee Michael Oliver after he brandished the red card in the 35th minute in protest, and were subsequently charged by the FA.

And the Old Trafford club have accepted their charge, resulting in a financial punishment.

"It relates to a breach of FA Rule E20 (a) for failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in or around the 35th minute of their FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea on Monday 13 March 2017."
