Former Manchester United ace Phil Neville says Nigerian teen Kelechi Iheanacho, is partly to be blamed for the brawl that lead to the scuffle between Chelsea Cesc Fabregas and Fernadinho.

City were trailing Chelsea 1-3 at home when Sergio Kun Aguero got sent off for a wild lunge on David Luiz while trying to initiate an attack late into the game.

The veracity of the tackle lead to arguments among the players with Iheanacho the first of City players to arrive at the scene pushing Fabregas away aggressively before Fernandinho stepped in.

” Iheanacho arrived at the scene and escalated the issue. He wasn’t trying to bring calm to the brawl, Fernandinho deserves his sending off but Fabregas should be suspended as well for slapping the Brazilian” Neville said while reviewing the video of the incident on Premier League show Match Day Live.
