Chelsea is no longer undefeated. The Blues were largely dominated at Wembley by Tottenham (3-1) on Saturday for the 13th day of the championship. If Olivier Giroud saved the honor at the end of the game, there was no photo between the two teams in the game. And the Spurs walk past their evening victim and climb to third.
Tottenham pulled off Saturday’s big job in England. The Spurs ended Chelsea’s invincibility this season in the Premier League. Placed in the best conditions thanks to a thunderous start to the match, they clearly dominated the unrecognizable Blues at Wembley (3-1). A victory for the men of Mauricio Pochettino who now have 30 points after 13 matches and take the third place in the standings in Chelsea, pushed back to two lengths. Tottenham thus remained within a reasonable distance of the first two, Manchester City (35 points) and Liverpool (33 points).
With Lloris and Sissoko at the start, the Spurs had a big rhythm that surprised the Blues who were beaten in all the duels. It only took them 16 minutes to take the break. Alli first took over a free-kick from Eriksen (1-0, 8′). Then Kane fired a distant shot which completely surprised Kepa, nailed on the spot (2-0, 16′).
With this deserved advantage, Tottenham left the ball to a uninspired Chelsea. To better evolve into counter and place several devastating quick attacks. Kepa has made some nice parades (13th, 30th, 45th+1, 83rd). But the Spanish doorman could not do anything against Son, author of a remarkable personal number (3-0, 54′).
From then on, the outcome of the match was sealed. And the reduction in the score of Giroud’s head (3-1, 85′), which came into play a few minutes before (76′), did not change anything. An evening to quickly forget for the men of Maurizio Sarri.
