Blues defender has got lucky.
Chelsea and Everton have been charged by the Football Association for failing to control their players in the league clash at Stamford Bridge.
However, Blues defender Branislav Ivanovic, who appeared to have Toffees midfielder James McCarthy in a headlock, has escaped punishment and it has been confirmed will not face any further action, reports CaughtOffside.

The pair were involved in a heated altercation on the pitch, with the Serbian not only trying to head-butt McCarthy, but images suggested he may have attempted a bite whilst holding the 24-year-old around the neck.
Mourinho’s side have got lucky with the decision – which means the Blues boss can struggle to claim that there is a ‘campaign’ against the club.
