The fallout from the Battle of Stamford Bridge has taken a bizarre turn after it emerged Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink was caught up in a post-match row with his own staff.

It's pretty understandable if Hiddink was not in the best of moods after being knocked to the floor during a fracas between Spurs and Chelsea players at the end of the game.

That was just one of a number of incidents in the heated 2-2 draw which confirmed Leicester City as champions.

Hiddink loses it 

As the brawl continued into the tunnel, Hiddink and his Tottenham counterpart Mauricio Pochettino attempted to calm the situation.

However, according to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea's massage therapist Manoel Ribeiro was reluctant to obey Hiddink's pleas, leading to a strict reprimand from the Dutch manager.

Hiddink embarked on an incredible rant, telling his staff: "Who do you think you are? Remember who the boss is!"

The initial melee outside the tunnel saw four members of Tottenham's staff having to restrain substitute goalkeeper Michel Vorm. Chelsea's staff also reacted furiously because they wrongly thought Danny Rose had deliberately pushed Hiddink, though he himself was in fact pushed. 

A feisty encounter

Both clubs will undoubtedly receive a punishment for a night filled with furious ill-discipline.

Tottenham are set to receive a record fine, as they are likely to be found guilty of failing to control their players twice in one season, the first occasion coming against West Brom. Chelsea could find themselves in a similar situation, though Tottenham face an even more nervous wait as they anticipate a lengthy ban for Mousa Dembele's eye-gouge.

Pochettino's side completely lost control, becoming the first team ever to have nine players booked in a Premier League game as their frustrations at missing out on the title reached breaking point.
