The brawl came just hours after Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has been handed a six game ban following Monday's Battle at the Bridge. 
The Belgian has been charged with violent conduct by the FA after replays showed him to scrape his fingers down Diego Costa's face during a touchline bust up in the first half. 
Tottenham and Chelsea were also charged with failing to control their players.
There were 12 yellow cards during the match, which saw two mass brawls, as Tottenham's hopes of winning the Premier League were ended.
