Mike Dean Acknowledges His Mistake On Marc Cucurella’s Hair Pull During The Tottenham-Chelsea Game
Football descriptions can occasionally be overstated, but it is appropriate to refer to the weekend match between Chelsea and Tottenham as a battle.
Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte had a falling out, and the two teams weren't shy about voicing their disagreements.
