Tottenham had the better form heading into the game at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea had lost four of their last five Premier League games, while Tottenham had won four out of the last five games. Indeed, Spurs were in form while Chelsea were out of form.

But it was Chelsea who were the better side at the Tottenham Stadium with Willian scoring a brace to give Chelsea the three points.

It was a special game to win for Frank Lampard as it was a London derby, and the Blues boss got one over his former boss Jose Mourinho. Lampard celebrated wildly in front of the away fans at the end of the game, and he has explained why.

Explaining whether victory as a manager can sometimes be more emotional than when you’re a player, Lampard said: “Possibly, especially when you’ve had a long week working. It’s not just about me, it’s about all the staff and their input. We’ve spoken a lot and worked with the players on the pitch.

“The reason to get so excited is not to look like we’ve accomplished anything because we haven’t, because we play Southampton in a few days and we have to worry about where we are in May, but for the players to feel how they should feel after that performance and for the fans to see what they can do when they’re absolutely at it in all senses is a big deal.

“Now, can we be consistent and can we reproduce that?”
