Chelsea are on a mission and who will stop them in their tracks was a huge question and still is after a resounding victory over Spurs.
Here are three positives from the game:
CHELSEA PROGRESS, SPURS REGRESS:
Another acid test to prove Chelsea’s title credentials and a job well done by Antonio Conte’s team. Pre-match briefings ensured the contest live up to expectation and it did. After Spurs slick beautiful football in the first half causing Chelsea problem, eventually, Eriksen powered a shot and scored which was the first goal we have conceded in 7 games. Soon after, Chelsea turned on style with two goals. With this win, we stretch Spurs poor record at our home and would be considered genuine title contenders. For Spurs, their problems become deeper.
VICTOR MOSES: THE ENFORCER
How influential can a player be especially when he scores the winner against your rival to win the game for his team. The Nigeria International is taking the league by storm every game. One can hardly imagine a Chelsea team without him. He dribbles, harries, attacks and defends with passion, guile, craft and purpose. If he continues in this form, then surely he’s a strong contender for end of season awards.
DIFFERENT CHALLENGE, DIFFERENT APPROACH:
One of my major concern was how do we respond when we fall behind in a game. Our performance against Spurs was an indicator of a Plan B. Despite being slow out of the blocks and pegged back by Spurs high pressing and slick passing movement which seemed dangerous, we held our nerve and bounced back after their goal. It was good to see the players demonstrate the will to win. With two goals in each half, we outscored, overran and overpowered Spurs to return back to the league summit.
At the moment, the sky is blue.
