Harry Kane’s equalizer six minutes into stoppage time gave Tottenham a thrilling 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, and Tuchel was furious.

The German advocated against Taylor officiating Chelsea games going forward.

“I can assure you that the whole dressing room of us, every person thinks that,” the coach said.

In the lead-up to Spurs’ first equalizer, Rodrigo Bentancur collided with fellow midfielder Kai Havertz, and the Blues were incensed that Taylor did not punish him.

Following the ensuing brawl, the two managers squared up, and Tuchel and Antonio Conte both received red cards as a result.

But both individuals got into another altercation full-time and were dismissed because of their still-high blood pressure.

The red cards do not automatically result in a ban, therefore both are virtually certainly going to be in the dugout for the games next weekend.

Before taking any action, the FA will watch the incident’s video footage and the referee’s game report. Before it ultimately goes to a commission, both managers have the opportunity to respond.

What did Thomas Tuchel say?

“It was hot from the temperature, hot between the benches, hot on the field and hot between the spectators – everything you want and hope for in a match like this early in the season,” the German said with a smile.

Tuchel was arguably more upset with referee Anthony Taylor at the final whistle than he was with his chirpy rival Conte, despite the fact that the touchline altercation threatened to overshadow a fantastic Premier League match.

More chaos ensued in the dugouts as Conte and Tuchel sparred once more, the latter furious at Cristian Romero for pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair minutes before Kane’s equalizing goal.

“I think both goals are irregular and this is very hard to accept in times of VAR,” Tuchel told BBC Sport. “I’m sorry to say but the referee had the decisive role today, nobody else.

“Both their goals cannot stand. There was a clear foul on Kai and the situation goes on and on. Richarlison was offside and when can you pull hair on a football field?

“I cannot understand how the first goal is not offside and I cannot understand how players can pull others’ hair and stay on the pitch. This is for me without any explanation and I don’t want to accept any.

Tuchel even suggested that Taylor should not officiate Chelsea matches again.

“I don’t think that just some of the fans think that – I can assure you that the whole dressing room of us, every person thinks that,” Tuchel added.

What did Anthony Taylor do?

Taylor’s effort as Tottenham Hotspur twice overcame deficits to draw 2-2 with Chelsea left Thomas Tuchel unimpressed.

Kalidou Koulibaly’s superb first-half goal gave the Blues the lead, but they were unable to capitalize on their superiority in the game.

In the 68th minute, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored, although there was dispute since the hosts believed Kai Havertz had been fouled earlier in the buildup.

After Reece James made it 2-1, Harry Kane scored the game’s second equalizer in stoppage time, but not before Cristian Romero seemed to yank Marc Curucella’s hair and VAR did nothing to stop it.
