Kane grabs point for Tottenham as Tuchel, Conte sent off
Tottenham grabbed a dramatic late 2-2 draw against Chelsea in a feisty encounter at Stanford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have been sent off for their heated exchange at the end of the game.
The home side dominated the first half, with Kai Havertz forcing a good save from Hugo Lloris before a spectacular volley from Kalidou Koulibaly gave Chelsea the lead.
They were then both sent off at the end of the game after Tuchel refused to let go of his counterpart’s hand at full-time.
It came after Harry Kane equalised in the final minute against Chelsea to allow Tottenham to escape with a point.
Tempers flared as the game was marred by a succession of controversial decisions from the referee.
Rodrigo Bentancur and Christian Romero were both involved in incidents which should have arguably ended in free kicks for Chelsea, but instead saw Chelsea conceding shortly after.
Chelsea took the lead twice in the game, the first coming courtesy of a fabulous strike from Kalidou Koulibaly and the second from a powerful Reece James effort.
However, Spurs showed their fighting spirit and refused to allow Chelsea to win the game.
Bentancur scythed down Kai Havertz ahead of the first equaliser and even stopped playing when it appeared Taylor would call a foul.
But Taylor deemed the midfielder to have won the ball and allowed play to continue as the ball progressed towards the Chelsea penalty area, where Ben Davies laid it off to Hojbjerg to drive an effort home.
