Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea: Jorginho condemns Spurs to third Premier League loss in a row

Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea: Jorginho condemns Spurs to third Premier League loss in a row

Sports
Thomas Tuchel continued his unbeaten start as Chelsea manager with victory at Tottenham, a result that moved them into the Premier League's top six.Jorginho's first-half penalty, awarded after Eric Dier upended Timo Werner, gave the Blues a win their more progressive approach deserved against a Spurs side devoid of ideas and ambition until it was too late.Tuchel has now enjoyed two wins and a draw, without conceding a goal, since replacing the sacked Frank Lampard, and while the animated German occasionally displayed signs of frustration in his technical area, this was ultimately a satisfying outcome.In contrast, it was a third successive defeat in a dismal sequence for Tottenham and manager Jose Mourinho as they were punished for a desperately negative gameplan which, shorn of main marksm...

Toby Alderweireld should have named new baby ‘Lucas’, Spurs received odd Champions League gifts and amazing celebrations vs Aston Villa

Sports
Good morning to everyone, especially Heung-Min Son. I don’t know about you folks, but I woke up with a massive smile on my face. Three points, last minute limbs and the gap to Chelsea is down to a point. You love to see it, you really do. Right, to Villa Park… VICTORY AT VILLA What a Sunday, eh? There is nothing better than a last minute winner. The absolute limbs in the away end were a treat to see, especially with new recruits Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwijn slap bang in the middle of them. My favourite part without a doubt was seeing Winksy just disappear into the away fans. Just looking at the table, boy did we need that. We now sit just a point behind Chelski and with a trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, that really could have huge repercussions for top four. Do you think we c...
