(MENAFN- Khaama Press)
Harry Kane scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Tottenham Hotspur snatched a 2-2 draw from a bad-tempered encounter against Chelsea in which Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel clashed.
Reece James' strike on 78 minutes looked to have given the Blues all three points in this London derby at Stamford Bridge, but Kane flicked home a corner kick in the 96th minute to salvage a point for the visitors.
Chelsea dominated much of the match and opened the scoring through Kalidou Koulibaly who registered his first Premier League goal in spectacular fashion, thumping home a volley from a Marc Cucurella corner.
Spurs levelled in the second half in controversial circumstances when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg struck past Edouard Mendy despite Chelsea's appeals about a potential foul and offside. This prompted the first clash between Conte and Tuchel on the touchline.
Sterling set up James to put Chelsea 2-1 ahead with just 12 minutes left, but Kane had the final say, nodding home deep into added time. Conte and Tuchel were again involved in an angry confrontation after the final whistle, the Chelsea boss pulling Conte towards him after a handshake, and both were shown red cards.
