Julian Ryerson took out Mason Mount as the last 16 first-leg tie went into added time.

And after a Chelsea coaching staff member tried to restart the game, it caused a melee on the touchline.

Players from both teams then began to get physical with each other as tempers flared.

Mount – who was initially fouled – received a booking for his part in the ruck and so too did Dortmund’s Niklas Sule.

Chelsea take a 1-0 deficit back to Stamford Bridge after Adeyemi broke away from a corner to put Dortmund ahead.

The goal just past the hour mark was enough to separate the sides, mounting further frustration on Blues boss Graham Potter.

He said: “It was a very strong performance, especially the second half.

“We created a lot of chances and efforts on goal but I am disappointed with the goal we conceded.

“I thought we were the dominant team in the second half. It is half-time in the tie, we have to regroup.

“It is a counter-attack from a corner, we were close to scoring ourselves. They broke on us.

“It is disappointing, we need to do better. Apart from that, we were really, really good, we just have to score.

“I thought we had good attacking movements, clarity in terms of how we wanted to attack and got into right areas. The attitude was really positive as well.

“You can see the supporters’ reaction, they were really positive, they can see the performance of the team, they gave us a fantastic reception.

“We are a team in progress, we know there are a lot of positive things there. You always need a bit of luck but you can’t wait around for luck, you have to keep working.

“The boys have been fantastic with their work but we are still suffering at the moment. But we will keep on working.”
