Thomas Tuchel speaks on Chelsea 2-2 draw vs Tottenham

by: Evolve


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believes the two goals scored by Tottenham should have been chalked off during Sunday’s dramatic 2-2 tie at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel is of the opinion that the centre referee – Anthony Taylor should never again officiate his team’s games.

Harry Kane equalized in the 96th minute of a controversial London derby at Stamford Bridge as Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel were both sent off.

Kane’s goal gave Spurs a point in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea with a header in extra time.

The Blues had the advantage in the first half, and Koulibaly gave them the lead with an amazing volley from a corner.

Jorginho failed to clear the ball in his own goal area, which led to Hojbjerg’s equalizer for Spurs.

James’ goal looked to have won the match, but in the 96th minute, Kane headed in a corner to force a stalemate.

But in the second half, things got so bad that both managers received red cards for yet another altercation that happened after the game had ended.

After the game, Conte shook Tuchel’s hand as he exited the field, but Tuchel wouldn’t let go, forcing Conte into yet another argument.

Once more, officials were needed to separate them, and this time, the referee gave both coaches a marching order.

The Chelsea manager had the following to say since he was in no mood to hold back his wrath at the referees.

“We were absolutely brilliant. Both their goals cannot stand. Absolutely cannot stand. There’s only one team who deserves to win and that’s us and I’m sorry to my team that they didn’t get the result they deserved. There was a clear foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up. Clear foul. We had one tactical foul from Reece James: got straight yellow. I don’t know how many tactical fouls Højbjerg and Bentancur did today. Nothing happened.”

The Blues coach further noted that;

‘Both their goals cannot stand. There was a clear foul on Kai Havertz and the situation goes on and on. And it’s a clear offside from Richarlison. He’s in the line of the shot, and he even goes to the ball. He doesn’t touch the ball [but] Édou cannot see the ball. They check it; it’s clear offside! And when can we pull hair on a football field?”
