Fulham could face charges from the FA following their recent match against Chelsea.

The English organisation tweeted yesterday that Marco Silva’s side had been charged for his player’s involvement in the sending off of Joao Felix.

All eyes were on Felix last Thursday, as he stepped out at Craven Cottage to make his debut for Chelsea.

The Portugal international had only just been signed on loan from Atletico Madrid, but was thrust straight into the spotlight by Graham Potter.

He took centre-stage almost immediately, with everything positive about Potter’s team going through their new signing.

Elegant in possession and purposeful going forward, there was much to appreciate about the 23-year-old’s performance.

Other than the most significant moment that shrouded his first appearance as a Blue.

Joao Felix’s Chelsea debut came to a sad end

Just before the hour mark, Felix lunged into a tackle on Kenny Tete, completely missing the ball and catching the Fulham defender high on the shin.

It looked a poorly executed challenge even without the luxury of video replays.

Silva’s men instantly surrounded referee David Coote, as they attempted to exaggerate the situation and seek punishment for the Chelsea forward.

This swarm around Coote is the reason the FA dished out their own penalty to Fulham, as they failed to ‘conduct themselves in an orderly fashion’.

Felix would’ve seen red regardless of the protests from the home side.

His apologetic look straight after the foul on Tete pretty much proved his guilt.

As he trudged down the tunnel, several of his Chelsea teammates apparently attempted to console their crestfallen co-worker.

They will not be without the attacker for another two games, having already missed the win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.
