Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho was on Tuesday night, September 29, involved in a touchline row with Frank Lampard as his side took on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.
The match had to be decided via the shootouts after finishing 1-1 after regulation time.
Chelsea thought they had nicked it through Timo Werner's first half opener, only for Erik Lamela to equalise in the 84th minute to force the clash into penalties.
Spurs eventually emerged victors with a 5-4 win, with Mason Mount's spotkick miss proving decisive.
Despite the dramatic finish of the fixture, it was the row between Lampard and Mourinho that stole the headlines.
Tempers flared up after Mourinho appeared to taunt his former player for being off his seat throughout the game.
“F*****g hell Frank, when you're losing 3-0 you're not standing up here," Mirror UK quoted the ex-Man United manager saying.
The dig was in reference to the Blues' 3-3 draw with West Bromwich that saw the west London side fight back from three goals down to salvage a point.
Mourinho went on to make gestures suggesting Lampard was talking too much in the tense cup match.
The incident was not the only fascinating moment from the London derby as the Portuguese manager had to track down Eric Dier to the tunnel as the Englishman went to respond to a call of nature.
