EXCLUSIVE: Ref Mark Clattenburg admits he messed up in the Battle of Stamford Bridge

The England right-back was first into the book in the 27th minute for another foul on the Spaniard and was followed by eight team-mates and three from the home team.

Chelsea players were also furious late on in the draw – which ended Mauricio Pochettino’s team’s title hopes – about a foul by Eric Dier on Eden Hazard, which earned a booking.

But Erik Lamela escaped despite appearing to tread on Cesc Fabregas’ hand, an action which led to more fury from Chelsea players, led by the Spain midfielder.

The FA have requested all available footage from Sky, the BBC and other broadcasters with a team studying what exactly went on.
