Chelsea beat Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham 2-0 at White Hart Lane to have a comfortable five point clear at the top four in the Premier League. Frank Lampard side stole the show at White Hart Lane as they pass the ball around after the second goal at second half.
Willian whipped Chelsea into the lead on 12 minutes and doubled his tally when he converted a VAR-awarded penalty on the stroke of half-time, and that was enough as Lampard outwitted his former manager to inflict the Portuguese’s first defeat against a club he used to manage at the 14th attempt.
Tottenham imploded in the second half, losing their heads on and off the pitch as Heung-min Son received a straight red card for petulantly lashing out at Antonio Rudiger after another VAR review.
The Blues quickly seized control of the pace of the game while Spurs steadily grew frustrated with their disjointed performance. It took 27 minutes for the hosts of muster a response of any kind to Chelsea’s opener, but when it came Harry Kane rashly fired over from Moussa Sissoko’s cut-back.
