Tottenham grabbed a dramatic late 2-2 draw against Chelsea in a feisty encounter at Stamford Bridge.

The home side dominated the first half, with Kai Havertz forcing a good save from Hugo Lloris before a spectacular volley from Kalidou Koulibaly gave Chelsea the lead.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane missed a good chance for either side before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg drew Spurs level with a low drive midway through the second half.

Both Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte were booked for a confrontation over an earlier foul following the goal.

In a heated atmosphere on and off the pitch, Reece James put Chelsea ahead again with 13 minutes remaining, before a late header from Kane nicked a draw in the sixth minute of injury time.

After the final whistle Tuchel and Conte squared up again, and were both shown the red card.

Earlier, a first-half goal from Super Eagles player Taiwo Awoniyi was enough to earn Nottingham Forest a 1-0 win over West Ham United, their first victory of the new English Premier League season as the City Ground hosted top-flight football for the first time since 1999.

Awoniyi scored Forest’s first Premier League goal in 23 years in first-half stoppage time and it proved to be the difference as both teams had goals disallowed by VAR and West Ham captain Declan Rice had a second-half penalty saved.
