Chelsea and Tottenham played out a feisty 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

One of the highlights of the game was Thomas Tuchel’s fracas with Spurs boss Antonio Conte.

It started when Conte celebrated Tottenham’s first equalising goal – the Spurs manager faced the direction of the Chelsea bench to celebrate the goal, much to the annoyance of the Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

They both had a row, and were each given a yellow card.

Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri has examined the first two weeks of the Premier League.

Speaking with Il Messaggero, Ranieri commented on the bust-up between Tuchel and Conte, and Ranieri insisted that Conte was right in his celebration, as he pointed out that the distance between both managers is short.

Ranieri said, “(Manchester) United at zero is a mystery. The two points of Liverpool surprise. Manchester City found (Sergio) Aguero’s heir in (Erling) Haaland.

“The Tuchel-Conte quarrel? I am with Antonio.

“Tuchel was angry at Conte’s exultation after the 1-1, but Stamford Bridge has a problem: there is only one metr between the two technical areas.”
