The Ghanaian is trending for the second time in four days for his part in a fierce burst-up between players of the two teams in a game on Tuesday
It has been a crazy Chelsea week for Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey as he made the headlines once again during the two clubs’ Premier League meeting on Tuesday.
In the game, the Ghanaian, who was on the substitute bench, launched into a chaotic brawl after Ricardo Pereira’s forceful challenge on Ben Chilwell in the closing stages of Leicester’s 2-1 win for ‘the Blues.
With Amartey having enraged many prior to the game after he was captured on video throwing a Chelsea pennant onto the floor “in disrespect” after Leicester beat the Blues 1-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday, Chelsea players, led by Thiago Silva and Mason Mount, wasted no time at all in moving onto Amartey during Tuesday’s brawl, resulting in the Ghanaian ultimately coping a yellow card for his involvement.

- Saliba’s big chance? Luiz leaving Arsenal opens door for on-loan centre-back
- Aurelien Tchouameni: The Monaco midfield ‘monster’ being linked with Chelsea
- What went wrong for USWNT star Rose Lavelle at Manchester City?
Like in the post-match period of Saturday’s win, social media has gone wild once again after Tuesday’s game, with Amartey among the most topical discussions.
Below are some of the reactions:

Antonio Rudiger on Daniel Amartey:
🗣️“Unfortunately some people of their team don’t know how to celebrate and we had to punish them for this. Don’t disrespect the club history. This is a bit bigger than you.”@toniruediger | #CFC | #CHELEI pic.twitter.com/7WlKnhRrcK
