Chelsea picked up another round of essential three points on Tuesday, as they beat Leicester City 2-1 at the Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Rudiger’s goal and Jorginho’s penalty strike secured the third place in the Premier League for the Blues.
After the game Rudiger admitted the actions of Daniel Amartey after Leicester City’s FA Cup win provided Chelsea with extra motivation to “punish” the Foxes.
After FA Cup win Leicester defender Amartey was videoed throwing the pennant presented to the Foxes by Chelsea onto the floor of the dressing room at Wembley.
It was viewed as a disrespectful action and Rudiger admitted after last night’s win that the incident gave the players extra motivation.
“Unfortunately, some people of them don’t know how to celebrate. We had to punish them, 100%,” Rudiger told Chelsea’s 5th Stand app.
“Some people from them gave us a bit more motivation from Saturday. Congratulations to them, they won and everything. Celebrate and everything but don’t disrespect club history. This is a bit bigger than you.”
Amartey was also involved in the late brawl on the touchline at Stamford Bridge. Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount all clashed with the Ghana international, who was an unused substitute for Leicester.
