Danny Rose has apologised for the brawl in the tunnel following Tottenham's 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
In a fiery encounter, a dozen yellow cards were produced while there were also two mass brawls, which involved both players and coaches.
Tension spilled over after the full-time whistle as the players made their way off the pitch when a melee broke out in the tunnel, resulting in Chelsea's interim manager Guus Hiddink being pushed to the ground.
The Football Association will take a close look at video footage of the incident before deciding on an appropriate course of action and Rose admits it may have looked bad to those watching at home.
"It is not nice to see for kids here or kids watching on TV. I apologise if it looked bad on TV," Rose said.
"It is a London derby. It is to be expected. We wanted to win and they wanted to stop us having any more say in the title race.
"There are no bad words to say about Chelsea. These are the games you want to be part of. It was a great game."
He went on: "I couldn't tell you what happened, it was just handbags being thrown.
"I saw the Chelsea manager fell on the floor. I hope he is alright. People were saying from the bench that he conducted himself like a true gentleman throughout the whole game.
"He did not want any trouble to be started."
