Tottenham Hotspur first football team beat Chelsea, 2-0, its rivals and its guest in a London summit, to consolidate its position in fourth place in the English Premier League, Sunday.
Oliver Skipp led Tottenham with a powerful shot in the first minute of the second half, and top scorer Harry Kane added the second goal from close range after following a corner kick in the 82nd minute.
Tottenham’s balance became 45 points from 25 games, and it is four points ahead of Newcastle United, fifth in the standings, who played 23 games, and will play against Manchester United in the League Cup final today.
Chelsea’s suffering continued, despite spending lavishly on strengthening its ranks last month, and its balance froze at 31 points from 24 matches, and it ranks tenth after remaining without a win for the fifth consecutive match.
This is the ninth loss for Chelsea in the league this season, which will certainly increase the pressure on coach Graham Potter.
Chelsea player Hakim Ziyech received a red card in the first half after clashes between the players of the two teams, before the referee was satisfied with a yellow card after reviewing the shot on the video assistant referee screen.
