The Premier League 2019/20 season is at its mid-way spot, and Matchday 18 had some interesting results.

Chelsea defeated Tottenham 2-0 on Sunday and it was a perfect performance from the team, with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard getting his tactics right for the game.

Premier League legend and BBC Sport pundit Alan Shearer has named two Chelsea players in his team of the week.

Willian is definitely an expected choice after his super performance away to Spurs. Shearer also opted for Fikayo Tomori after his defensive contribution over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has hailed the team’s great spirit as the secret behind the impressive victory over Tottenham.

He told the official Chelsea website: “We prepared very well during the week, we knew that we were coming to play against a tough team but we did our job, we knew that we had to recover that fighting spirit and that it was a London derby with what that means to everybody in Chelsea.

“We did very well, with the quality we have in the team like with Willian with these two goals and every piece of football he did in the game was amazing. We fought and we played some very good football. It is due to the whole team doing an amazing job and I am very happy with it.”
