The coaching duo will square off once again at the end of the game after the customary handshake. Tuchel kept hold of Conte's hand when the Italian didn't look him in the eye, with the pair needing to be separated.

At his post-match presser, Tuchel delivered a wholesome moment with the German tactician aiming a dig at referee Anthony Taylor while insisting his side deserved the win.

But during the press conference, the 48-year-old Chelsea boss jokingly showed off his muscles to reporters; Tuchel insisted that the coming together that saw both coaches red-carded was hardly a "big deal".

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte continued his tirade with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel on social media albeit jokingly.

Conte and Tuchel clashed in a heated argument following a pulsating London derby staged at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, August 14.

The two managers first faced off after Hojberg's equalizer, which Tuchel felt it shouldn't have stood due to the purported foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up to the goal.
