Tottenham Hotspur’s disappointing run of form continued on Saturday evening, as they lost yet again.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the London derby.
Christian Eriksen put Spurs in the lead in the 11th minute of the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge.
Pedro restored parity for the Blues on the stroke of half time, and Victor Moses put Antonio Conte’s side ahead six minutes into the second half.
Tottenham were the better team in the first half, but London rivals Chelsea stepped up their game after the break and deservedly picked up all three points.
Villarreal striker Roberto Soldado was following the match on TV, and the Spaniard was quite excited at the start.
The 31-year-old former Spurs striker was delighted to see Eriksen put Pochettino’s side in the lead, but one suspects that he was not pleased with the final result.
The defeat to Chelsea means that Tottenham remain outside of the top four in the Premier League table for the time being.
Spurs are currently fifth in the standings with 24 points from 13 matches, a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who have a game in hand.
