Chelsea back to top with a victory over spurs.

Premier League: A brilliant second-half display ensures that Chelsea seals an emphatic 3-0 victory. The first period was a tight affair: both teams were confined to chances on the break, but Son and Mount both squandered openings for either side.

However, Chelsea clicked into gear after the break. First, Silva firmly headed in Alonso’s corner to start the half. Then, Kante‘s 25-yard strike flicked wickedly off Dier to confuse Lloris, before rolling in off the post. From there, Chelsea had plenty of chances to make the scoreline look even more handsome. But after wasting plenty of chances, Rudiger made it three when he swept in Werner’s cut-back. Tottenham will be disheartened by poor performance, but for Chelsea, this is a statement of three points.

Chelsea was at a backfoot during the first half of the match. But as soon as the second half began they picked up their pace to ensure the victory. The inclusion of Kante came out to be a great move for Chelsea in the second half.

Many saves and blocks were done by Chelsea’s defense and Keeper. They made sure to take the clean sheet home. Son came very close to a goal but a big save by Kepa denied the opportunity and saved a match-changing moment.

Thiago Silva scored the first goal to give Chelsea a lead. He climbed over Alli to head in Alonso’s header and headed it in the bottom corner of the goal beyond Lloris at the start of the second half at 49th minute.

Magical Kante made it 2 for Chelsea in the 57th minute after Dier saved an off-line chance in 53rd. Kante got a pass at 25 yards and decided to rifle a low strike in the goal which took a deflection from Dier for a post and goal in.

Lloris saved many chances after 2 goals were scored. One saved from corner which was headed again by Thiago Silva. An incredible Double save came at the 82nd minute of the game when Werner got very close to goal and was saved by Hugo to rebound it in Alonso’s feet and he shots but was blocked by the defenders. The block was received by Kovacic on the left side of the box and was crossed for Cesar. Cesar tried to head it in for Werner to tap in but was gloriously saved by Lloris to deny the third goal.

Antonio Rudiger made it 3 for Chelsea in stoppage time. They got the goal that their play had deserved.  Werner drives to the byline before cutting it back to Rudiger who was still in the box after the corner was taken, Rudiger strikes the ball the first time into the left bottom corner, with no chance for Hugo to save.

Tottenham have conceded more Premier League goals against Chelsea (106) than they have versus any other opponent, while they’ve only lost more games in the competition against Man Utd (36) than against the Blues (32).

Chelsea has won each of their last five away league London derbies – they had never won six in a row on the road before yesterday in their league history.
