Video: Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink knocked to the ground as tempers boil over against Tottenham

Guus Hiddink fell to the floor amid a melee following Chelsea's bad-tempered 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

As the Dutchman headed for the tunnel following the game at Stamford Bridge he appeared to be trying to escort Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

However he lost his footing amid a crowd of players with Tottenham defender Danny Rose nearly toppling on top of the 69-year-old.

Hiddink's tumble led to confrontations between, predictably, Diego Costa and Rose with Spurs goalkeeper Michel Vorm also becoming involved.

As the players grappled with each other, Hiddink was helped to his feet by stewards before heading down the tunnel.

The match, which saw nine Tottenham players and three Chelsea players booked, ended Tottenham's hopes of winning the Premier League title. The visitors to Stamford Bridge had to take all three points to stop Leicester from being crowned champions. However despite taking a 2-0 lead, Chelsea came back to level the scores.

Leicester will recieve the Premier League trophy after their final home match this Saturday.
