No FA ban for Tottenham boss Antonio Conte but Thomas Tuchel handed Chelsea touchline ban
Following the confrontations following Sunday's 2-2 draw between Tottenham and Chelsea, Antonio Conte was assessed a fine of £15,000 by the FA. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was given a one-match suspension and a fine.
Following an incident at Stamford Bridge after the final whistle, referee Anthony Taylor issued a straight red card to both the Spurs head coach and Tuchel. The Blues manager refused to let go of Conte's hand when he tried to shake it; he was angry that the Italian had not given him a direct look.
There appeared to be no physical altercations during that, but both men came face to face with each other as well as the players' dugout and players.
After a confrontation following Tottenham's first equalizing goal, Conte and Tuchel had already received yellow cards earlier in the game.
