Xtra Time Web Desk: There was high drama in the South London derby as Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs played out a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. The match was marred by two rival coaches getting involved into a brawl.

It was the home team who produced their best performance on Sunday. Tuchel’s side gave no respite to Spurs. And they deservedly took the lead when Kalidou Koulibaly volleyed home from a corner.

Chelsea could’ve gone into half time further ahead given their dominance, which continued after the restart. Yet against the run of play, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg managed to find the bottom corner with a low drive toward goal. The equaliser resulted in a touchline spat between Tuchel and Antonio Conte, both of whom were booked.

The Blues restored the lead back through Reece James after being teed up by Raheem Sterling. However, in stoppage time, a Tottenham corner was headed home by Harry Kane to earn Spurs a share of the points.

Tuchel was furious at the decision by the referee. As the two coaches shook hands with each other, neither of them released their handshakes and got into another spat. In the end both were sent off.
