Chelsea and Leicester stars went head-to-head in a heated clash at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday with tempers boiling over during their crucial tie in the race for Champions League qualification.
The Blues came out on top thanks to Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho, with Kelechi Iheanacho's goal proving to be just a consolation as the home side held on.
The result leaves Chelsea in a comfortable place to secure a top four finish on the final day, with Liverpool closing in on the Foxes.
The victory would've also handed Thomas Tuchel some revenge following their FA Cup final defeat, and they can now focus on the final two games of the season.
The event started with a hefty challenge on former Leicester man Ben Chilwell, who went to ground and stayed there.
Ricardo Pereira and Rudiger then started squaring up to each other, causing multiple players from both teams to rush in.
Kasper Schmeichel then arrived to push his team-mates back onto the pitch, but they couldn't regroup and find an equaliser.
Former England defender Matthew Upson said on BBC Radio 5 Live: "Good luck trying to figure that one out.
"There were so many bodies in and amongst it. The tension in this match is hard to describe. That was a sign of it all boiling over in one moment.
"Coaching staff, managers, subs on the bench all getting involved."
