Chelsea and Tottenham ended in a 2-2 draw in the London derby of the second round of the Premier League. The match in west London was very interesting and full of interesting situations, and the visitors got to the point in the sixth minute of stoppage time thanks to Harry Kane.
It was hot not only on the field, but also near the touchline, where managers Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte almost came to a fight. The Italian started the fight with the equalizing goal for his team for 1:1, and after the final whistle Tuchel called him to account and they had to be broken up again.

Chelsea took the lead before 20 minutes had passed since the first whistle. After a corner kick from Koukureya, Koulibaly intercepted the ball brilliantly from the air and sent it hopelessly into Lloris’ net. Thus, the former defender of Napoli signed in his first home game as a player of the Londoners.
The “blues” continued to have better chances, but they never got to a second goal.
Instead, in the 68th minute, Tottenham equalized.
Bentancourt probably fouled Havertz, after which Spurs organized an attack, the ball reaching Høiberg outside the Chelsea penalty area. The Dane, with a precise shot, sent it into Mendy’s lower left corner. Tuchel protested against the referees, while Conte gloated in his face, prompting an exchange of lines between the two, but they were stopped by a physical confrontation from people from both staffs.
The joy of the guests did not last long. In the 78th minute, Reece James made the score 2:1. He was given the ball by Sterling, who could also shoot, but wisely gave him the ball and it looked like the England international had given Chelsea the three points.
Harry Kane hadn’t had his last word though…
Tottenham took two corners in a row. In the second, Kane headed the ball in and equalized in the 96th minute.
After the end of the match, there was another clash between Conte and Tuchel. The two exchanged greetings, but the German held his colleague’s hand, and this was followed by further face-to-face exchanges and a gathering of people from both camps.
