Manchester United Under-21s recorded an impressive win over their Chelsea counterparts at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.

However, a 17-man brawl ensued following an awful challenge by Kasey Palmer on Sadiq El Fitouri.

Palmer recklessly slid in on the United full-back but, somewhat ironically, ended up taking out his own teammate Ola Ain in the process. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

This led to the 17-man brawl ensuing over by the touchline, leaving the referee with a decision to make.

Incredibly, though, Palmer’s ugly challenge went unpunished. The only players cautioned for the brawl were Bradley Collins, Chelsea’s goalkeeper, and United’s Josh Harrop.

Second brawl at Stamford Bridge this week

There were similar scenes at Stamford Bridge last Monday, when Chelsea’s first team played out an ill-tempered 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele was handed a six-match ban by the Football Association on Friday for sticking his fingers in Diego Costa’s eye.
