Conte, 53, appeared to head straight to Tuchel, 48, to celebrate as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg made the net bulge.
It was Battle of the Bridge II as the pair bumped chests and barked at each other as they appeared to be ready to ruck.
The passionate German boss was animated over a potential foul of Kai Havertz just seconds earlier.
He was then fuming as Jorginho gave the ball away in his own box and it led to a Spurs equaliser at the hands of the Dane.
The game was turned on it’s head once again moments later as the Blues equalised through Reece James.
Kante stole posession of the ball and the Frenchman found Sterling on the edge of the box.
He lay a wonderful pass into Reece James, who had the space of Stamford Bridge to slot home.
Havertz and Christian Romero then bumped heads in the 85th minute as the game heated up even further.
