Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham boss Antonio Conte were both sent off at the end of their side's 2-2 draw on Sunday after clashing in an ill-tempered affair at Stamford Bridge.
The pair had been locking horns throughout the second-half, but the feud reached a boiling point shortly after the final whistle after Harry Kane had scored a last-gasp equalizer for the visitors.
Things looked to be relatively calm as both managers went for the customary handshake, but the two managers erupted when it appeared that Tuchel wouldn't let go of Conte's hand after the Spurs boss failed to look his opposite number in the eye.
taff and players from both sides ran in to separate the emotional two men in what was a fitting end to a fiery match played in scorching heat.
"It was hot from the temperature and hot between the benches and hot on the field and hot between the spectators -- everything that you want and what you hope for in a match like this early in the season," Tuchel told the BBC.
"There's no hard feelings. I feel like it was a fair tackle from him [Conte] and a fair tackle from me.
"We did not insult each other, we did not hit each other, we were fighting for our teams and, from my side, there's absolutely no hard feelings. I'm surprised that we both got a red card for that."
The pair had clashed earlier in the game after Conte irked Tuchel with his enthusiastic celebrations when Tottenham initially equalized to make it 1-1, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg canceling out Kalidou Koulibaly's opener.
However, Tuchel was no shrinking violet after Reece James made it 2-1 to Chelsea, with the German running down the touchline after admitting the match "sucked me in."
