Thiago Silva's wife, Isabele, hit out at Leicester's Daniel Amartey and backed her husband for "showing him who's boss".

Amartey angered Chelsea players and fans after he was seen throwing away the Blues' pennant in the Wembley dressing room. And while Leicester issued a public apology, the Chelsea players clearly had not forgotten the incident.

Ricardo Pereira's forceful challenge on Ben Chilwell in the closing stages of Leicester's 2-1 defeat by Chelsea prompted a mass brawl among players and staff, including Silva and Amartey. During the fracas, Silva confronted Amartey and his wife, Isabele, took to Twitter and said: "That's right @tsilva3 show who's boss."

She even joined in with a chant of "We hate Tottenham" much to the delight and amusement of Chelsea fans present in the stadium.

Speaking about whether the Amartey incident affected the Chelsea players’ attitude, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel said: “I did not talk about it. I know there was an incident but I didn’t talk about it before the match or in any meetings. I don’t do this but I think the players were well aware.”

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, insisted the officials handled the situation perfectly and that none of the players overstepped the mark.

“It was two sets of players in a competitive situation, and that’s what happens obviously when you have two games in quick succession and we’re fighting for the points like they are,” said Rodgers, before concluding, "The referees and the officials dealt with it well, so it’s okay.”
