Sunday afternoon’s meeting London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham was a good game on the pitch and outside the pitch between Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte.
Chelsea opened the scoring through Koulibaly – Tuchel and Conte were animated on the touchline, barking instructions to their players before a full-blown confrontation in the aftermath of Spurs’ first equaliser from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Conte appeared too fired up for Tuchel’s liking and the German responded when his side again took the lead, sprinting past the Spurs dugout in celebration of Reece James’ strike which appeared to have won the game for Chelsea.
Kane’s header, however, ensured the game was drawn 2-2 and the points shared. At the full-time whistle, the two managers again came to blows and both ended up being sent off by referee Anthony Taylor.
The pair each made light of the incident in their post-match comments, but Conte has since posted on Instagram with the message: “Lucky I didn’t see you…making you trip over would have been well deserved…
The Football Association is likely to look into the game to see what misconduct took place. With the pair being sent off, they are likely both to be suspended for their next games against Leeds for the blues and Wolves for the Italian Manager
