Premier League: Conte and Tuchel booked after coming together in Chelsea vs Spurs match


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte were both booked after getting involved in a coming together in Chelsea’s match against Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea was leading 1-0 in the match courtesy of Kalidou Koulibaly’s goal in the 19th minute but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalised in the 68th minute.

The whole debate started after Kai Havertz felt that he was fouled by Spurs’ Rodrigo Bentancur approximately 90 minutes before the goal and his sentiment was echoed by the whole Chelsea bench including Tuchel who was furious that the foul was not given.

Conte, on the other hand, had gotten too close while celebrating the goal and there was a coming together between the two managers which ignited a fracas at the touchline.

Hojbjerg’s goal stood but both managers were booked in the process.
