Chelsea can’t do that and Tottenham are taking advantage of it. Tottenham quietly beat the Blues on Sunday in the framework of the 25th day of the English Premier League (2-0). Oliver Skip unlocked the situation early in the second half (46), the visitors failed to respond and Harry Kane set up the second half (82). Antonio Conte’s players, who are still absent for health reasons, consolidate their fourth place. And that of Graham Potter, increasingly menacing, remains tenth.
Voluntarily against Tottenham as a caution so often, the Blues nonetheless started the London derby well. They got their foot to the ball in the opposing half and a restless Joao Felix stood out while Raheem Sterling created differences down the left side with his speed. However, the visitors didn’t really worry Fraser Forster, Tottenham hit back on the counter and Harry Kane set fire to Kepa Arrizabalaga’s box (14th).

Ziyech got hot
That breakthrough left Thiago Silva on the wing and Wesley Fofana had to play (19). The young Frenchman activated and parried a low pivot shot from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg on the left post of Kepa (27). Hakim Ziyech distinguished himself very carefully in a generally closed first period, with a small slap on Emerson Royal and was sent off, but referee M. Atuel reconsidered his decision after consulting his screen and finally only issued a yellow card (45+5).
The meeting changed once it resumed. In the clash, Spurs attacked hard. asked Emerson Kepa, Enzo Fernandez had a bad idea to clear the ball instead of letting his goalkeeper grab it. Skip inherited it and managed to strike from 20 meters to send it under the crossbar (1-0, 46th place). And so the 22-year-old midfielder signed his first goal with his training club.
Chelsea is helpless
Tottenham managed to fall behind in the middle of the field against the Blues, who still sorely lacked collective cohesion and attacking inspiration. Joao Felix, Kai Havertz, Sterling and Ziyech managed to combine well only once, but the Portuguese little heel was intercepted towards the German by the reactive Forester (67).
Spurs held out calmly in their defence, and Heung-min Son managed to enter (79′) and hit a corner on the right, where Eric Dier extended it with a header towards Kane, who scored alone at the far post (2-0, 82′). The England forward has scored 18 league goals this season.
Entries by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mikhailo Modric (83), they didn’t change anything. Despite their fleet, Chelsea suffered a third successive defeat in all competitions without being able to score. This deficit on the ground can have ramifications behind the scenes.
