EPL: Conte criticizes Tuchel once more: “You’re lucky, I would have tripped you.”

After Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel’s enmity was rekindled.

Football is back and many football lovers are already happy cause they’ll finally get to see their lovely teams in action. In fact, fans will get to start talking about the rivalry of one to against another, one player and the other (in the case of Messi and Ronaldo) and in like manner, the rivalry of coaches.

On Sunday, Chelsea host Spurs and the game went “A wire” as the two teams fight to get points. Chelsea at one end was eying a maximum 3 points while Tottenham and the other end made that impossible for Chelsea. Many people believed it has the hands of Anthony Taylor (The Referee who Chelsea fabs believes doesn’t favour them). During the game,  the two managers argued after Spurs twice overcame deficits to earn a point’s split.

Just prior to Spurs’ first equalizer, Tuchel signaled a foul on Kai Havertz and an offside on the goal, with Richarlison appearing to obstruct Edouard Mendy’s field of vision.

He and Conte got into an argument over his protest, and both coaches received a yellow card.

Chelsea believed Cristian Romero should have been dismissed for tugging Marc Cucurella’s hair prior to Harry Kane’s late header, but VAR reviewed the incident and found no severe foul conduct.

When the game was over, Conte and Tuchel proceeded to shake hands, but the Chelsea manager wouldn’t let go of his rival’s hand and gestured for him to stare into his eyes, starting another brawl as both managers received their marching orders.

“Lucky I didn’t see you…,” Conte commented on Instagram following the game. It would have been well merited to trip you up.
