  • The Battle of Stamford Bridge took place at the village of Stamford Bridge, East Riding of Yorkshire, in England on 25 September 1066, between an English army under King Harold Godwinson and an invading Norwegian force led by King Harald Hardrada and the English king's brother Tostig Godwinson. After a bloody battle, both Hardrada and Tostig along with most of the Norwegians were killed. Although Harold Godwinson repelled the Norwegian invaders, his army was defeated by the Normans at Hastings less than three weeks later. The battle has traditionally been presented as symbolising the end of the Viking Age, although major Scandinavian campaigns in Britain and Ireland occurred in the following decades, such as those of King Sweyn Estrithson of Denmark in 1069–70 and King Magnus Barefoot of Norway in 1098 and 1102–03.

The match was one of the most dirtiest football matches in recent times in the Premier League with 12 yellow cards, 9 of which came from Tottenham. Tottenham needed a win to stay in the title race and were leading 2-0 at half time. But goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard meant that the match finished as a draw and Leicester City F.C. were historically crowned champions of the 2015-16 Premier League. During the match, there was an infamous moment when Moussa Dembele tried to gouge the eyes of Diego Costa. The Tottenham player wasn't penalised but was given a retrospective 6 match ban by the FA. Tottenham then slumped in the remaining two games and finished 3rd in the table behind bitter rivals Arsenal while Chelsea drew their remaining two games and finished 10th in the table after what had been a disastrous campaign for the reigning champions.
