Thomas Tuchel has been suspended for one match for a heated clash with Antonio Conte

Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte were hit with fines following their heated confrontation at Stamford Bridge last weekend, while the Chelsea manager also received a one-match touchline ban.

However, Tuchel’s ban has been “temporarily suspended” pending written reasons, which will be provided “in due course”, the FA said in a statement. Tuchel will therefore be on the touchline for his side’s game against Leeds on Sunday.

Tuchel was fined £35,000 for the incident, while Tottenham boss Conte was hit with a £15,000 fine and received no punishment.

Both managers were charged by the FA with misconduct after last weekend’s 2-2 Premier League draw.
