Chelsea needed a win at Tottenham Stadium to maintain a tight grip on top four and the Blues got a much desired result with a 2-0 victory against Tottenham.
It’s the first time Chelsea have won a game against any of the top six sides under Frank Lampard and the victory was well deserved.
Willian scored a first-half brace, and the Blues did well to see out the game in the second half with proper game management following the red card of Son Heung-min.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho refused to blame the red card as reason for the defeat but believes that his side’s start to the game was the reason for the defeat.
The Portuguese said after the game: “I think in the first half they were the best team but it is one thing is to arrive at half-time losing 1-0 and another to be losing 2-0. We have to blame ourselves for both goals. We didn’t defend a short corner and the second is a penalty.
“The second half was much better and then we had one player less so it was very difficult. In spite of that we had a reaction, in spite of that we had pride, in spite of that we searched for a goal which could change the state of the game. But it was not possible.”
