Jake Paul has analysed footage of 'handshake gate' and has come to the conclusion that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel would knockout Spurs boss Antonio Conte if they had a fight.


The YouTuber-turned-boxer, who recently shared an 'interesting' video of himself having a kick around, gave his thoughts on Sunday's beef between Conte and Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.

It all kicked off when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalised for Spurs after Chelsea took the lead through new signing Kalidou Koulibaly.

Tuchel was unhappy over a potential foul on Kai Havertz in the build up to Hojberg's goal and soon picked up a yellow card following a fiesty clash with opposition manager Conte.

Then, after Chelsea took the lead again with just over 10 minutes remaining, Tuchel channelled his inner Jose Mourinho by sprinting past the Italian and down the touchline. 

A dramatic London derby escalated even further when Spurs forward Harry Kane headed home from a corner to make it 2-2 – a goal that caused controversy after Cristian Romero pulled Marc Cucurella's hair in the build-up.

Moments later and Conte and Tuchel clashed again after a frosty handshake at full-time.

The German refused to let go of Conte’s hand and both men had to be separated by their coaching staff before being shown red cards by referee Anthony Taylor

It was the talk of social media on Sunday night. Even Jake Paul got involved in the action with a bold prediction.

"Fear is clear when you don’t look at your opponent in their eyes," he analysed. "Tuchel would KO Conte and I would pay money to see it."

This isn't the first time Liverpool fan Paul has offered his opinion on football-related matters. Earlier this month, he decided to predict the Premier League's top ten.

Unsurprisingly, Paul thinks Jurgen Klopp's side will be crowned champions, with Manchester City, Spurs and Manchester City finishing in the top four.

He also said the only thing he know "with certainty" is that Liverpool are better than Arsenal.
