The charge referred to the heated aftermath of West Brom’s Claudio Yacob escaping a second booking after fouling Diego Costa in the second half of the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
The game was a fractious affair with firebrand Chelsea striker Costa involved in several spats, including an incident with most of the West Brom team after the final whistle.
Chelsea were also fined for misconduct in November following their bad-tempered Premier League clash with West Ham United.
