Chelsea’s coach Thomas Tuchel will be banned from the touchline when they host Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday following his behaviour in their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month, the Football Association said on Friday (Aug 26).

Tuchel accused the match officials of making wrong decisions as Spurs came away from Stamford Bridge with a point.

Tempers also flared, with the German and his Tottenham counterpart, Italian Antonio Conte, shown red cards for a confrontation.
