There were some very shameful scenes on display as Chelsea came back from a two-goal deficit to hold Tottenham to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last night.
The Spurs needed to win the game to keep their title bid on track and there were tempers boiling all over the pitch. Referee Mark Clattenburg had to dish out 12 yellow cards (nine for Spurs and thre for Chelsea) during the game and it was only a miracle that no player was sent off during the game.

The result ended Spurs’ hopes of winning their first league title since 1961. While the city of Leicester is in a party mood as the Foxes have been crowned league champions for the first time in their history.
Here are all the scuffles that broke out at Stamford Bridge last night:
Things boiled over at the end of the first-half, following Danny Rose’s tackle on Willian. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino had to enter the pitch to break the altercation.
Willian made me love him so much. Rose puts hands on him, he shuts that down & just tosses Pochettino out the way. pic.twitter.com/PxeOE1XbAF

In the melee of the previous incident, Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele was caught gauging the eye of Chelsea forward Diego Costa. He could be slapped with a ban for his action.
Wonder if Dembele will get punished for this. If Costa did it, he would be crucified by the mediahttps://t.co/SLPjD5zsjT
