Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been fined £8,000 following his sending-off during a match against Swansea City in November.

Conte was dismissed just before halftime for disputing a decision by referee Neil Swarbrick in the Premier League game at Stamford Bridge, which his team won 1-0.

The Italian subsequently apologised but told British media he had been frustrated with Swansea's time-wasting.

The FA said in a statement that Conte had admitted the misconduct charge and accepted "the standard penalty" for the offence.

Chelsea, who are third in the Premier League, visit West Ham United on Saturday.
