Hull fined 20,000 pounds for player misconduct at Arsenal

REUTERS - Hull City have been fined 20,000 pounds ($25,000) after admitting an FA misconduct charge for failing to control their players during their 2-0 Premier League defeat by Arsenal on Saturday.

Hull's players were angered by referee Mark Clattenburg's decision not to send off Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs for a last-man foul on winger Lazar Markovic 10 minutes into the second half.

The club had accepted both the charge and the standard penalty for the offence, the FA said in a statement on Thursday.
