Tuchel And Conte Swing 2-2 Between Chelsea And Tottenham

Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte were the stars of another heated duel between Chelsea and Tottenham in the Premier League that ended on Sunday thanks to a scathing goal from Harry Kane.

As happened in 2016, Kane’s scoring was left in the background with this explosive London Derby finish at Stamford Bridge. Tottenham’s determination to win the title was then diluted with his 2–2 draw with Chelsea, which remained as an epilogue. A struggle between players and coaches from both clubs, on and off the field.

Six years later, the trainers have made their mark. When Tuchel and Conte waved to each other at the whistle, Tuchel didn’t want to let go so he told Conte to look into his eyes. , they yelled at each other.

Both Tuchel and Conte received direct red cards.

They already had a brush during the game after Conte celebrated their first goal in the 68th minute, a goal from Pierre-Emile Hoybjerg. He faced him to riot and went directly to where Tuchel was. Tuchel pointed at Conte and told him to stay in his own technical zone.

A short time later, Tuchel celebrated ecstatically as Reece James regained the lead for Chelsea in the 77th minute, running past Conte on the flank.

“You should look in the eyes when you shake hands, but Antonio thinks differently,” Tuchel said of the clash with Conte.

“He was happy when they got tied and things got a little heated, but there was nothing to write about about it… I don’t think it was necessary, but it doesn’t need much was.”

Despite being asked many times, Conte did not want to talk about the fight.

Kane’s header from a corner kick ended Tottenham’s five-match losing streak against Chelsea in all competitions and sealed title contenders.

Tottenham had better luck with the first goal, but this was probably unfair given that Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentacur had fouled Chelsea striker Kai Havertz in the previous play.

Furthermore, shortly before Kane’s goal, Argentine defender Cristian Romero appeared to pull Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella’s hair in action in the area.

Kalidou Koulibaly put Chelsea ahead in the 19th minute with a volley from Kukurella’s corner kick. It was the Senegalese defender’s first goal after arriving from Napoli.

The result left both teams with four points after two games. Only Manchester City and Arsenal have six points as their ideal.

Forest’s first victory

Nottingham Forest were lucky as they defeated West Ham 3-0 in their first Premier League home game in 23 years.

Newly acquired Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi’s first-half stoppage-time rebounding goal made the difference on a day of celebration at the city ground, giving Forest its first points since returning to the top division.

Instead, the West Ham players waved goodbye lamenting that they left with empty pockets.

Declan Rice missed a penalty in the 65th minute, saved by Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson. In addition, Pablo Fornals and Saeed Benrama had long-range shots from the crossbar in the second half. Ben Rama was disallowed after VAR intervened near the end of the first half.

Henderson also worked hard to block a Tomas Suchek shot in the closing minutes, while Neco Williams cleared Kurt Zuma’s header.

West Ham suffered a losing streak early in the season, but Forest smiled in his first Premier League campaign since 1999.

Since securing promotion, Forest has completed 12 contracts, two of which have been involved in scoring moves.

Arriving after leaving Manchester United, Jesse Lingard took a weak shot that hit West Ham defender Ben Johnson’s leg.
