 Results of Chelsea vs. Tottenham: Harry Kane gets an equalizer in stoppage time as Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel argue

Tottenham Hotspur snatched a 2-2 draw from a heated match against Chelsea in which Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel sparred thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Harry Kane.

At Stamford Bridge, Reece James' goal on the 78th minute appeared to have secured the Blues the three points in this London derby, but Kane scored off a corner kick in the 96th to give the visitors a draw.

Chelsea dominated the game for the majority of it, and Kalidou Koulibaly scored the game's first goal in dramatic fashion by volleying in a corner from Marc Cucurella.

In questionable circumstances, Spurs tied the score in the second half when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg shot past Edouard Mendy despite Chelsea's protests about a possible foul and offside. This led to the first on-field altercation between Conte and Tuchel.

With only 12 minutes remaining, Sterling set up James to give Chelsea a 2-1 lead, but Kane scored the game-winning goal in the final seconds. 

After the game, Conte and Tuchel got into another heated argument, with Conte being pulled towards Tuchel by the Chelsea manager after a handshake. Both men received red cards for their actions.

Box office results from the Conte-Tuchel matchup

Numerous managerial squabbles have occurred in the Premier League over the years, and the building hostility between Conte and Tuchel was evident during this game and even after it was ended when both managers were dismissed by Anthony Taylor.

The behavior of Conte and Tuchel on the sidelines reflected the high-intensity, high-energy nature of the match. For years, the Premier League has lacked strong managerial talent. This rivalry may give England's premier league an additional edge. For what occurred both on and off the pitch, it was box office.

The lack of innovation at Chelsea could be a problem.

Against Tottenham, Chelsea attempted 23 crosses, but only four were successful. With Spurs confidently deflecting the aimless deliveries into their box, that exemplifies many of the difficulties the home club encountered in maximizing their domination of the ball and area.

Although Thiago Silva and Koulibaly are dangerous from corners and Kai Havertz is capable of winning a tackle in the air, Chelsea's frontline isn't designed to receive crosses into the box from open play. Tuchel will undoubtedly examine this after the game.

Conte's adjustments were successful.

Over the course of this game's 90 minutes, Chelsea was the team that played the better game overall. The Blues finished with a higher expected goals number and had more shots than Spurs (1.53 to 1.06). But Conte's second-half adjustments were successful and played a significant role in Tottenham stealing a point.
