The game saw controversial calls made by referees as well as a bust-up between former Blues Premier League-winning manager Antonio Conte and Tuchel.
An intense handshake at full-time following a late Harry Kane equaliser saw both managers receive a red card.

Chelsea will also be without midfield duo Kante and Kovacic.
Kante was withdrawn in the 84th minute against Spurs due to a hamstring injury.
