Two Chelsea players – Marcos Alonso and Alvaro Morata – drew focus on themselves in the Palace game for questionable behaviour.

Alonso put his hands around the head of James Tomkins after the Palace defender was physical with Andreas Christensen.

Later in the match, Spanish striker Alvaro Morata was lucky to avoid being sent off.

Morata was already on a yellow card before he got into a clash with the linesman.

In a moment of madness, Morata knocked the flag from out the linesman’s hand.

He was incredibly lucky to avoid being booked for his behaviour.
