FA investigate Arsenal and Chelsea’s smoke bomb kick-off delay at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea – Arsenal 05.10.2014

  • Smoke bomb let off in away end concourse at Stamford Bridge on Sunday causing 15 minute delay to KO
  • Gates were temporarily closed to prevent more fans entering the stadium
  • Arsenal could be charged under rule E20 for ‘failing to control supporters’

The FA have started an investigation after the weekend’s Chelsea v Arsenal game was delayed by 15 minutes after a smoke bomb was let off in a concourse at Stamford Bridge.
Both clubs have been asked for their observations by the FA but it is thought Arsenal are more likely to be in trouble because the incident occurred at the away end of the ground.
