Chelsea took the lead courtesy of Kalidou Coulibaly’s strike in the first half of the game.
Hojbjerg equalised for the visitors in the second half before Reece James rest of the lead again for the hosts.
A 96th-minute header from Harry ensures that both sides share the spoils, but tension has already spilled into the touchlines.
Previously warned with a yellow card for both managers, Tuchel and Conte were caught in a dugout brawl.
Tuchel’s end-of-match handshake turned into a heated quarrel as they squared up against each other in a heated challenge.
The English FA responded appropriately by establishing an independent Regulatory Commission to investigate the incident.
The commission indicted the tap managers for breaching FA Rules 3 and slammed them both with fines.
Tuchel was slammed with a £35,000witba touchline ban, while Conte was slammed with a £15,000 fine without a touchline ban.
Tuchel’s ban was temporarily suspended against Leeds pending when the decision is communicated to him by the FA.
Meanwhile, the former Borussia Dortmund manager grumbled about the outcome of the penalty bemoaning why Conte was not served the same punishment.
He appealed against the decision, but his appeal has been rejected, and he is now set to serve the touchline ban against Leicester.
Chelsea has been winless in their last two matches and will be hoping to overturn a run of poor results when they face Leicester City.
