Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel were pictured in a furious face off on the touchline during Chelsea and Tottenham’s London derby at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The two clubs have ambitions of fighting for the Premier League title this season, with the clash proving a perfect test for both.
The home side had the better of proceedings for the majority of the match, opening the scoring with a stunning volley from Kalidou Koulibaly on his Stamford Bridge debut. The Blues continued to probe, with plenty of chances throughout, but the away side just managed to hang in there.
With the game not out of sight, there was always a threat of Spurs fighting their way back into it. They did just that, but in controversial fashion.
After the equaliser, Conte was pictured celebrating in front of his opposition manager, sparking the German coach to react furiously. The scenes spilled onto the pitch, with former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher joking on Sky Sports: “People say we don’t want to see scenes like that but I love it, I want more of it.”
