The Football Association have charged Chelsea with two counts of failing to control their players in the drawn Premier League match at Liverpool.
Shortly before half-time referee on Saturday Chelsea players protested after Anthony Taylor gave a penalty and sent off defender Reece James for a goalline handball. Mo Salah equalised from the penalty spot. The match subsequently finished 1-1.
The Chelsea players were incensed by Taylor's decision as the ball had struck the England international's thigh first.
The FA has given Chelsea until Friday to respond to the charges.
"Chelsea FC has been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on Saturday," read an FA statement.
"It is alleged that Chelsea FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 48th minute of the first half, and following the half-time whistle."
