FA Cup

Tuchel and Conte face FA charges

Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte are both charged by FA after a heated clash on Sunday.

Following a controversial derby that ended in a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday,

They have both been charged for "improper behaviour" by the Football Association.

Both coaches were involved in several exchanges throughout the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, before an incident surrounding their post-match handshake saw both red-carded 

A statement released by the FA has now confirmed the charges.

“Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have both been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3. It is alleged that the behaviour of both managers was improper.

“Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have until Thursday 18 August 2022 to provide their respective responses.”

The Head coaches had to be pulled apart at the end of their sides 2-2 draw, after which they were shown red card from Referee Anthony Taylor.

The dramatic scenes started when Tottenham scored their first equaliser, but it became even more serious when Harry Kane scored an injury-time equaliser in a game the hosts should have won comfortably. The Blues were left furious with referee Anthony Taylor, feeling both of Spurs’ goals should have been disallowed.

Chelsea felt that a foul on Kai Havertz in the lead-up to Spurs' first goal went unpunished, as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg slammed home a long-range strike to cancel out Kalidou Koulibaly's wonderful opener. Cristian Romero then pulled Chelsea's new signing Marc Cucurella to the ground by his hair inside the box - right in the view of Taylor - before Harry Kane nodded home a late leveller.

VAR official Mike Dean opted against a red card for Romero, leaving Tuchel unhappy with those decisions
