Tottenham Hotspur continued their poor record against Chelsea as they lost yet again at Stamford Bridge.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side headed into Wednesday’s Premier League encounter on the back of three successive wins in a row, including a 2-1 success over Everton at White Hart Lane.
Spurs’ recent performances had flared up suggestions that they were going to stage an ‘upset’ against Chelsea and pick up all three points, but they failed to do so. And failed miserably.
Eden Hazard opened the scoring after just 19 minutes when he shot home from close range after being teed up by Didier Drogba.
Drogba himself netted Chelsea’s second just minutes later, and Loic Remy wrapped up a pretty good evening for the Blues when he found the target in the 73rd minute.
It was a formidable performance from Chelsea, who retain their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
As for Tottenham, their inconsistent and miserable season continues. Hugo Lloris’s reaction after the first goal (see picture above) sums up the North London’s campaign so far.
Winning against Chelsea at the Bridge was always going to be tough, but the manner in which Spurs collapsed against the Blues and the final goal-margin are indications of a bigger problem.
