Tottenham players face being scrutinised by the FA after they lost their discipline at Chelsea and had nine men booked.
Spurs’ failure to see out victory at Stamford Bridge after being two-nil up can be attributed, at least in part, to their indiscipline in a niggly encounter which will see numerous incidents scrutinised by the Football Association.
Nine Spurs players were booked, four after Eden Hazard’s equaliser, and the players left the field squabbling, but boss Mauricio Pochettino claims he saw nothing that was not par for the course.
When asked about the indiscipline, he said: “Nothing to say. It’s normal, the emotion, fighting on the pitch maybe is not a good example for both teams, but it was hard.
“This is a feeling that for me is a good lesson that we need to take, to improve. Fantastic night for us.
“We showed we’re strong in our mentality, we fight all together.
“You can see in every game in the last few days a lot of things happen, because we are at the end of the season and a lot of emotion.”
Mousa Dembele could be in the most trouble after he appeared to poke Diego Costa in the eye in an incident not seen by the officials.
