Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham Hotspur counterpart Antonio Conte shared perhaps the most moody post-match handshake in London derby history.
Both Tuchel and Conte were furious after the match and the pair locked on each other and had to be separated as they began to exchange niceties.
Both managers received red cards for efforts that could have been more comfortable on AEW Dynamite or WWE Smackdown.

Tuchel explained afterwards that he was upset that Conte didn’t look him in the eye as they shook hands.
“When you shake hands, I thought we were looking into each other’s eyes, but we had a different opinion, so it was emotional. He was happy when they equalized and it got a little heated but nothing serious. Do we both get a red card? It was not necessary. But many things were not necessary. Another bad decision from the referee today.
“It’s moving. You like it. We don’t need comments now. It was heated and heated. Look at the. It’s the Premier League, it’s the game. You like it, don’t you? We like that. We are emotional coaches.
Harry Kane had headed an added-time equalizer to deprive Chelsea of three points at home and leave their manager frustrated.

Speaking after being shown a red card, Tuchel said: “That’s the only frustration. I’m the happiest manager in the world because we played a fantastic game.
“We dominated for 90 minutes, we were sharp and hungry in all areas of the pitch. It was a top, top, top performance. I feel sorry for my players.
“You report for days and days how great a derby this is and how long it’s been since they won here. So you can’t be surprised when it’s emotional. It’s Tottenham versus Chelsea, that’s how it is.”
Tuchel wasn’t happy with any of Spurs’ goals.
“We were absolutely brilliant. I must say both [Spurs] goals cannot stand. There is only one team that deserved to win and that was us. I’m sorry for my team, they don’t get what they deserve.
“It was a clear foul on Havertz in the build-up, a clear foul. We had a tactical foul from James who got a caution. I don’t know how many tactical fouls Hojbjerg and Bentancur made today. The situation continued, and it was a clear offside on Richarlison. He’s in the line of fire. He even goes to prom, so Mendy can’t see the ball. The check is a clear offside.
“And when can you tear your hair out on the football field? When is it? So we check and nothing happens, so we don’t need to check anymore. It’s ridiculous.”
