- The 24-year-old utility defender's hair was among the chain of controversies which shrouded Chelsea's home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur
- Cucurella, who joined Chelsea from Brighton, marked his home debut with an assist as the Blues shared the spoils with Spurs in an enthralling game
Marc Cucurella has ruled out the possibility of shaving his iconic hair despite defender Cristian Romero pulling his David Luiz-like hair during Chelsea's fiery London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
Cucurella's hair pulling was among the plethora of controversial incidents ignored by referee Anthony Taylor during Chelsea's home game against London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge last Sunday.
Spurs will rally back with a goal from Hojberg albeit on controversial grounds. When Reece James restored Chelsea's lead, it appeared Thomas Tuchel will keep his perfect record against the Lilywhites.

But Harry Kane will pull the chestnut out of the blazing fire to steal a point for the visitors at the death.
Prior to Kane's equalizer, Cristian Romero hauled Cucurella down with his curly hair which was waived off by Anthony Taylor.
When quizzed on whether he thought the hair pulling constituted a foul, Cucurella told reporters via GOAL: "Yes. For me it is too clear in the game, on the pitch.
"I didn’t see it on the TV, the video. I think it’s very clear but this is one error of the referee or VAR. Sometimes the referees have good decisions, sometimes not."
The Spaniard, who won the Player of the Year award at Brighton last season, was then asked if he would consider cutting his hair to avoid similar incidents in the future, but his answer was emphatic.
"No, never. This is my style!" he said.
