Kane Earns Spurs a Point Against Chelsea.

Sunday’s Premier League derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea ended in a 2-2 draw thanks to a late equaliser from Harry Kane. Both managers were shown red cards following the final whistle.

In the sixth minute of stoppage time, Kane headed in Ivan Perisic’s corner kick to preserve a point for the visitors, who have now won only once in their last 38 trips to Stamford Bridge.

It created chaos on the touchline, when Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte argued for a second time on a scorching afternoon.

After Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had equalised for Tottenham in the 68th minute, Reece James’s goal in the 77th minute appeared to win the victory for the powerful hosts.

Chelsea took the lead in the 19th minute when Kalidou Koulibaly volleyed in a corner kick to make his home debut memorable. The Blues dominated the opening period.

It was easy to understand Tuchel’s irritation when Hojbjerg equalised after Chelsea squandered many opportunities to extend their advantage, including one by Raheem Sterling.

Tuchel screamed at the referee, believing that Kai Havertz had been fouled in the buildup and that Richarlison was offside. He also battled with Conte, earning yellow cards for both of them.

Havertz missed a golden opportunity to put Chelsea back in front, but the hosts regained the lead when James fired past Hugo Lloris off a ball from Raheem Sterling, with Tuchel sprinting down the sideline in jubilation.

KANE NEARS RECORD

Tuchel’s disposition deteriorated, though, when Kane salvaged a draw with his 42nd goal in London derbies — one less than legendary Arsenal star Thierry Henry’s record.

After a heated handshake, Tuchel and Conte lost their composure and were separated by their coaching staff.

Chelsea and Tottenham, who finished third and fourth respectively last season, have each earned four points from two contests.
