The more the final signal on Tuesday evening at the Premier League match between Chelsea and Leicester City (2-1) approached, the more uncomfortable it became on the field of Stamford Bridge. In injury time, defenders Antonio Rüdiger and Ricardo Pereira got into a fight. This led to a massive uproar involving ‘everything and everyone’!
The German stopper and goalscorer from Chelsea gave Pereira a push after a duel. The 27-year-old Portuguese international did not accept this and pushed back. A tremendous skirmish was born.
Soon both reserve benches of the 2 teams competing for Champions League spots were also present to stoke or calm things down. In the end, Pereira got a yellow card. Substitute Daniel Amartey also received a yellow print on behalf of the visitors.
Chelsea was on roses via Rüdiger and a striking penalty from Jorginho. A goal against Kelechi Iheanacho did not confuse them for their own fans.
