Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte have been accused of misconduct following their explosive clash in a stormy 2-2 draw on Sunday.

Tuchel and Conte were embroiled in two angry exchanges when anger flared during the Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

Both managers were booked for the first game, which was started after Conte celebrated Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s equalizer near Tuchel’s technical area.

“It is alleged that the behavior of both coaches was improper after the end of the game. Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have until Thursday 18 August 2022 to give their respective responses. “

Tuchel could also face other charges from the FA, who are probing his post-match comments about referee Anthony Taylor.

Tuchel said it “probably would be better” for Taylor not to referee Chelsea again, to the German’s anger over both Tottenham goals.

He felt Hojbjerg’s effort should have been disallowed because of offside against Richarlison, as well as a foul on Kai Havertz seconds earlier.

Tuchel also insisted Tottenham defender Cristian Romero should have been punished for pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair, with a VAR check giving him a red card for an incident that happened shortly before Harry Kane’s header equalized for the visitors. .

Both coaches could face bans due to their antics, with Tuchel having admitted he could be absent from the touchline when Chelsea face Leeds next weekend.
