Conte Protests Possible Point Deduction

Antonio Conte has protested reports that Chelsea could face a penalty of  points deduction as punishment for an incident with title rivals Manchester City.
Both clubs have been slammed by the FA over the conduct of their players following the ruckus that marred the closing moments of a 3-1 win for Conte’s side at Eastlands last weekend.
Report says the clash could force the FA to hand Chelsea a points deduction penalty for bad player behaviour for the first time since 1990 when Manchester United and Arsenal were punished following a mass brawl.
City’s Sergio Aguero was dismissed for his malicious attack on Chelsea defender David Luiz, which disturbed the game as players defended each other, leading to Fernandinho being red carded for pushing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Recall that Chelsea were warned last season over the future conduct of their players when they appealed against a fine imposed for their part in an ill- tempered London derby with Tottenham.
Reacting on the alleged points deduction, Conte said  “Are you joking? For me, if you are involved in a situation and the fault is not yours, you must pay? Why? I don’t understand this”
“After the game you can see very clear my players try to keep calm.”
“You must be honest to understand when there is a fault, with both teams or one team.”
