Tough week, admits Chelsea boss, and I have spoken to the owners

Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday with second-half goals from Oliver Skipp and Harry Kane keeping Spurs in the hunt for a top-four finish and extending the Blues’ miserable run under coach Graham Potter.

Seconds after the break, Skipp picked up a clearance by Chelsea’s British record signing Enzo Fernandez and fired in from more than 20 yards, his shot going in off the bar after Kepa Arrizabalaga could not get enough of a hand on it.

Kane secured the three points for Spurs when he pounced at the far post after a corner by Son Heung-min was flicked on by Eric Dier in the 82nd minute.

Chelsea, who failed to score for fourth time in five league games despite spending around 300 million pounds ($358 million)on players in January alone, failed to create any clear-cut chances to get themselves back into the game.

The win - the first for the hosts in nine league games against Chelsea - kept Spurs fourth in the table, four points ahead of fifth-placed Newcastle United who have played two games less.

Chelsea sit in 10th position, 14 points behind Spurs. Potter’s side have now won only two games in their last 15 in all competitions.


Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea

50 mins: Oliver Skipp’s goal came 20 seconds into the second half. It’s put Tottenham firmly in control of the game and they’re making use of the lead.

The home side have come out with an attacking mindset and are pushing for a second.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea (Skipp, 46’)⚽️

46 mins: Yes we will! Tottenham get Emerson Royal free on the right side of the box and he forces Kepa Arrizabalaga into a low save.

Chelsea then fail to properly clear their lines and chip the ball out to Oliver Skipp who wins it ahead of Joao Felix.

Skipp guides the ball back into the box before unleashing a rocket at the goalkeeper. His effort hits the underside of the crossbar and bounces over the line! Kepa had no chance.

Tottenham take the lead.

Half-time: Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea

45+6 mins: Nothing to separate the teams at half-time. Chelsea will feel relieved that Hakim Ziyech is still on the pitch. He earned himself a red card for a shove on Emerson Royal but VAR came to the right decision to overturn it.

All to play for in the second half.

Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea

45+5 mins: Hang on a minute! Hakim Ziyech is told not to leave the pitch as the VAR check is still ongoing. A couple more minutes pass before the referee is then told to rescind the red card and give Ziyech a yellow instead.

Chelsea have a reprieve. It’s the correct decision as Ziyech only pushed Royal and didn’t mean to catch him on the chin.

Red card! Ziyech is sent off!

Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea

45+3 mins: It’s all kicking off after Hakim Ziyech fouls Richarlison. The Brazilian reacts and squares up with Ziyech before Clement Lenglet and Emerson Royal get involved.

Royal shoulders into Ziyech who responds with a forceful shove. He hits Royal in the shoulder before following through and striking him on the face

VAR takes a look at the incident and the referee pulls out a red card!

Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea

43 mins: Save! Wesley Fofana drives in between Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski with the ball before fizzing a cross field pass over to Raheem Sterling.

Sterling cuts inside from the left and smokes a right-footed shot towards goal forcing Fraser Forster into a sharp save to his left.

Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea

39 mins: Chance! Ben Davies brings the ball into the final third and links up with Harry Kane. Hakim Ziyech pounces on a loose ball but Richarlison nicks it back off him.

The Brazilian weaves into the box from the left and tries to curl a shot towards the far corner only to mishit the effort and belt it wide.
