Tottenham's Yves Bissouma celebrated wildly after 2-2 draw vs Chelsea

We might not see a better game in the 2022/23 Premier League season than Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur.

On a boiling hot day in London, the two giants of the English game went toe-to-toe and it was an absolute thriller from start to finish.

Chelsea’s summer signing Kalidou Koulibaly kicked things off at Stamford Bridge with a spectacular opening goal, the giant centre-back deliciously volleying home Marc Cucurella’s well-directed corner.

Spurs then grabbed an equaliser through Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, which came just moments after a foul on Kai Havertz was somehow not given by the officials.

Managers Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel clashed on the touchline in the immediate aftermath of the goal.

Chelsea moved back in front on 77 minutes when Reece James cooly finished past Hugo Lloris, a strike which prompted Tuchel to celebrate in a manner befitting of peak Jose Mourinho.

But the Blues boss was left heartbroken right at the end of stoppage-time when Harry Kane nodded home Ivan Perisic’s corner, which sparked scenes of pandemonium among the Spurs players and in the away end.

Then to cap off a chaotic afternoon in west London, Conte and Tuchel’s fiery handshake after the full-time whistle had been blown saw another brawl nearly break out between the two dugouts.

Yeah, it was certainly a game to remember.

The Spurs players were evidently happy with a point after what was a fairly poor team performance overall.

And Yves Bissouma – who came on in the second half – got a little bit carried away with his celebrations in front of the fans.

The former Brighton midfielder fist-pumped right in front of them, something which is usually reserved for when a major victory is secured.

As such, some football fans on Twitter have chosen to criticise Bissouma for his passionate celebrations…

Rival fans are having a bit of a giggle over Bissouma’s actions, but if you’re part of the Spurs faithful, it’s great to see a new signing already engaging with the supporters in such a way.

The 25-year-old, who represents Mali at international level, was snapped up this summer by Conte’s side for a fee of around £25 million – which is a bit of a bargain in the modern market.

After his impressive cameo against Chelsea, Bissouma will be pushing for a start in Spurs’ next Premier League fixture at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
