Chelsea fell hideously to a 5-2 defeat to West Brom on Saturday lunchtime, and clearly the result has taken its toll on the players.
A report surfaced from The Telegraph yesterday suggesting that a number of players had been involved in verbal altercations in the aftermath of the loss, with Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga even involved in a shoving match.

Rudiger apparently went in hard in a challenge on Kepa in a small-sided game in training on Sunday which the Spaniard reacted to. The pair pushed each other and Rudiger did not calm down. As a result, the German was sent inside early and missed the rest of the session.
Reece James and captain Cesar Azpilicueta were also involved in some heated words after the West Brom defeat.
However, the report does point out the fact that all the incidents have since been cleared up and put to bed by all the parties and apologies were made.
