Chelsea wasted their best football and drew 2-2 against Tottenham in a volcanic derby tied by Harry Kane in the 96th minute and which ended with coaches Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte one step away from coming to blows after the conclusion of the duel .
To begin with, Chelsea did what they had to. He changed the image of him. He left behind the bitter version of his debut against Everton, from which he came out unscathed with a victory. He couldn't play with fire again, much less against one of the 'Big Six' clubs.
While Conte opted for the same eleven (what works is not touched), Tuchel changed sides.
Kanté, imperial, completed a brilliant formation that left Tottenham without arguments in the first half.

Cucurella took it out. A perfect center. Right at the boot of the center-back who in a second made Rüdiger's departure for Real Madrid be forgotten. With a volley, he burst Lloris's goal and Chelsea sealed their dominance with a realistic goal.
Tottenham, knocked out, had 45 minutes to react. After passing through the locker room, he was able to do it the first time with a chance from Son, but Mendy appeared to stop the attempt by Conte's team.
Along the way, Chelsea left their utter and total dominance behind. Richarlison's entry balanced the duel, although Sterling was able to sentence with a shot that went over the crossbar. He pardoned and Hojbjerg appeared to level the score with a shot from outside the area after Jorginho's error in a delivery.
Then, Conte and Tuchel faced each other. As in the best times of Mourinho and Wenger. The German claimed a previous foul by Bentancur on Havertz that the referee did not grant. The German coach couldn't stand the goal and responded to Conte's face-to-face celebration by yelling in his face.
