THOMAS TUCHEL has been banned for one game after clashing with Antonio Conte in Chelsea’s recent draw with Tottenham.

Both managers were charged earlier this week with breaching FA Rule E3 and have now received their respective punishments.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has received a one-match touchline ban and been fined £35,000 for his confrontation with Antonio Conte at the end of Sunday’s derby against Tottenham.

Spurs boss Conte has also been fined £15,000 after both managers admitted improper conduct during the 2-2 draw.

Tuchel’s ban has been suspended temporarily, though, pending the full written reasons for the decision.
