Antonio Conte drags Thomas Tuchel on instagram after a heated london derby

Antonio Conte has hit out at Thomas Tuchel on social media, insisting he wishes he could have tripped him over, after a feisty London derby...

Conte's Tottenham snatched a 2-2 draw against Tuchel's Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday amid controversy on the pitch and scuffles off it.

Tuchel ran past the Spurs bench ecstatically after Reece James made it 2-1 to the Blues, and the Italian later admitted - perhaps with tongue slightly in cheek - in a cheeky post on Instagram that Tuchel was 'lucky' Conte did not see him doing so.


 His Instagram post at around 11.30pm BST on Sunday night read: 'Lucky I didn't see you... making you trip over would have been well deserved...' followed by three cry-laughing emojis. 

Both bosses were sent off by referee Anthony Taylor after the game, with Tuchel holding on to Conte's arm as they shook hands, before yanking it towards him to remonstrate about the apparent lack of respect of Conte refusing to meet his eye - Conte, for his part, asked his opposite number: 'what do you want?'

Six years after the original Battle of the Bridge, war broke out between Chelsea and Tottenham again in an explosive clash, with the two managers the central figures and both set to be hit with touchline bans after receiving straight red cards.

Conte and Tuchel goaded each other with their second-half goal celebrations before going eyeball-to-eyeball as they shook hands, sparking an ugly mass confrontation involving players, officials and security staff from both clubs in an incredible finish. 

Moments after Harry Kane salvaged a draw for Spurs with an injury-time header, a fired-up Conte also clashed with Chelsea sub Cesar Azpilicueta and midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who was injured and not in the squad, as he headed for the tunnel.
