Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham - Conte and Tuchel see red in stormy London Derby stalemate - Premier League (Match highlights)
What is premier league without the drama and dugout bust up? The fans at the Stamford Bridge Stadium witnessed the madness of Conte and Tuchel in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The Blues hosted Spurs in a game of huge significance.
It was the battle to keep 100% record intact with only Manchester City and Arsenal left in that conversation.
Chelsea rang few changes with Ruben Loftus Cheek and Marc Cucurella both handed starting roles.
Tottenham returned with the same team that beat Southampton on the opening day but Richarlison was eligible for selection.
So he started from the bench.
It took only 17 minutes for Kalidou Koulibaly to register his first goal for Chelsea in his home debut off a fine corner from Cucurella.
Pierre Emile Hojbjerg leveled for Spurs and the managerial melee started from there.Conte celebrated in the directions of the traveling fans but also close to Tuchel, the Chelsea manager thought Rodrigo Bentacur fouled Kai Havertz in the build up to the equalizer and it took staff and officials to separate both Conte and tuchel, both were duly booked by Anthony Taylor.
Chelsea scored again with thirteen minutes left on the clock through a smart Reece James finish, that appeared to be the winner and Tuchel celebrated wildly in the directions of Conte.
But a late finish from Harry Kane off a corner kick by Ivan Perisic sent Conte wild and his celebration angered Tuchel.
Conte and Tuchel were both shown red card
Conte and Tuchel were entangled at full time with replays showing Tuchel refused to release the hand of the Italian manager and another round of melee ensued.
It took everyone on the ground to settle what looked like a serious fight.

Anthony Taylor issued both Conte and Tuchel, a second yellow but disciplinary actions would follow from the FA for what was described as a shameful conduct.
However, Chelsea fans are furious with Taylor and took to social media to petition the English referee to never officiate their game ever again.
