Welcome to Sportstar’s highlights of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Huge tussle after the final whistle. Tuchel and Conte have a meltdown and the Italian is shown a red card. Passions running high and Tuchel is upset not just for the way his side gave away the three points it deserved.
KAANEEE!! It is a late late equaliser from the English skipper. He heads in from the corner and it goes in via Reece James’s thigh. 2-2 and it is full time.
Azpilicueta given the task of helping his side through to three points. Spurs unable to push the ball forward as much as it desires. Six minutes added on. Perisic thunders in a long throw. But it deflects off Kane for a goal kick. Spurs win a freekick down the left wing. Perisic steps up to take it. But Chelsea clears it away for a corner. Mendy to the rescue after Ben Davies nudges the corner goal-bound.
Havertz gets a yellow card for a foul on Romero. Great intensity by the forward. Chelsea’s composure with the ball has been admirable. Gallagher himself has had two opportunities to score so far.
Kante comes down clutching his hamstring. He is replaced by Connor Gallagher, who is welcomed by applause all around.
Chelsea has been the better side and now it leads again. Conte, meanwhile, looks to shake up things. Perisic and Lucas Moura is introduced.
Chelsea makes its dominance count. Sterling finds James inside the box and the wing-back makes no mistake. GOAL. And it all came from a careless piece of football from Spurs. Tuchel runs away in joy.
Chelsea gets back into its rhythm. Reece James blitzes in an inch-perfect cross for Havertz. But the German misses a sitter there. HUGE OPPORTUNITY missed.
Lengthy VAR discussion. A potential foul on Havertz before the goal and Richarlison’s positioning during Hojberg’s shot is what is in question. Both Tuchel and Conte have been booked for their remonstrations. Finally, the goal has been given. 1-1.
Chelsea’s lack of a proper central striker is holding them back. Spurs pass the ball around at the top of the box and it finally lands at the feet of Hojberg who drills it into the left bottom corner. GOALLL!! And we have an equaliser.
Richarlison draws a corner from Cucurella. Son gets a second chance at the corner. But Sterling steals the ball and sets off on a counter. But Kante’s pass for him was off the mark. Spurs recover well.
Sterling and Loftus-Cheek fluff chances to score Chelsea’s second goal. Seconds later, Harry Kane missed a chance that he would have buried any other day. He was driving down the goal and was face to face with Mendy. But he could only drag his shot wide. Missed opportunity there for Spurs.
Richarlison comes in for Sessegnon. That means a change in formation for Conte’s side. A shift to back-4 and Spurs being proactive to make a way back in to this game.
Richarlison is warming up for Spurs. Conte must be itching to change the way this game has played out so far. Jorginho’s turn to win a freekick. This time it is closer to the center circle.
Chelsea is relentless with its attacks. Mount’s cross/shot forces Lloris to give away a corner. The pressure continues as Sours concede another corner.
Tottenham has come back with a lot of intensity. But they have nothing to show for it so far. Another foray down the right by Chelsea and Loftus-Cheek wins a freekick after a foul by Davies. James’s cross wasn’t high enough and is cleared.
Loftus-Cheek helps Chelsea advance into Spurs territory. Spurs regain possession and Kane finds Son. But the angle was against him as Mendy shuts him down. Much more open game in the second half.
Chelsea has dominated Spurs in the first half. The change in formation has worked for Tuchel. The extra man in the midfield for Chelsea has thwarted Spurs from playing its natural game. Kane and Son have been isolated at the top. Chelsea’s lead came courtesy of a wonderful goal from Koulibaly, who volleyed in from a Cucurella corner. Conte has to change things around to bring the game closer.
Chelsea is still in control of the ball. Jorginho finds space down the left and he loops in a ball to the back post for Loftus-Cheek. But the English midfielder couldn’t get a touch. Brilliant ball from Jorginho.
Havertz presses and pleads his way into winning a corner kick. But it is Spurs who breaks away with the ball. James was forced to pull down Son, who was flashing into dangerous territory. James given a yellow card.
Mount drives into the box. His shot though is off the mark. Chelsea has a chance to pull further ahead here. Loftus-Cheek has a chance to shoot, but he takes a tad too long and Spurs clear. Jorginho is at the centre of everything for Chelsea. He is the axis upon which Tuchel’s team rotates.
Mount draws another foul. This time from Bentacur. Loftus-Cheek slides in to cut off a through ball meant for Sessegnon.
Mount fouled by Kulsevski. Chelsea wins a free kick in an attacking position. Cucurella’s delivery is headed away. Spurs take their time with the ball and attempts to string a few passes together.
Game restarts. Koulibaly snuffs out a Spurs counter press. The ball moves upfield and Sterling tries to shoot. Blocked by Hojberg.
Spurs getting frustrated by the minute. Chelsea pressurises Son to concede another corner. Koulibaly almost connects to an acrobatic volley. The Blues are maximising its advantage in the set pieces. And now we have the Drinks Break.
Spurs clearly shocked by that goal. Koulibaly timed that to perfection. Chelsea continues to dominate the possession.
Cucurella with the corner. He whips it and Koulibaly unleashes a volley shot and it rifles in. GOAALLL. The new signings have linked up brilliantly. 1-0 for Chelsea
Cucurella has shown no signs of being overawed despite this being his first start for Chelsea. Koulibally gets to take a shot with his left foot. But it flies wide. Next is Havertz, who is teed up by a Sterling backheel. Lloris sticks out a foot and saves it. First corner for Chelsea.
Chelsea has been firing in crosses from both wings. Cucurella and James are its major driving forces down the flanks. But Spurs defenders have dealt with them adeptly so far.
Romero seems to have injured himself after he tackles Cucurella. He springs up soon enough. Jorginho is forced to slide in to prevent Spurs from breaking. The Blues are beginning to control possession better.
Kante steals a ball in the midfield. Chelsea drives down the right and a cross skims close to Lloris. No runners from Chelsea making a move. Chelsea gaining a foothold in this game.
Spurs has dominated the early runnings. But no shots on target for it so far. Kane brings Reece James down to prevent a counter attack. Lucky not to be booked.
Tuchel has brought Loftus-Cheek in with the intention of strengthening the midfield. Son had a chance to pull a shot on a counterattack. But the South Korean’s first touch wasn’t the best. But Spurs wins the first freekick of the game, but Son puts a lot of weight on that one. Flies over the crossbar.
Antonio Conte has retained the same starting 11, while Thomas Tuchel has made two changes. Cesar Azpilicutea makes way for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marc Cucurella replaces Chilwell. This means a change in the formation for the Blues, as Tuchel looks to counter Conte’s tactics.
Chelsea’s Premier League campaign gets its first big challenge as it sets up to host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel’s men will have to deal with a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur side which began its season in rampaging fashion with a 4-1 win over Southampton last week.
Chelsea, meanwhile, eked out a slender 1-0 win over Everton, courtesy of a Jorginho penalty. Edouard Mendy pulled in a splendid shift in between the stick to help his side to a clean sheet and a win.
Spurs manager, Antonio Conte, would have a point to prove to his former employees, after having been at the receiving end of three defeats against the Blues last season.
With both sides expected to go in with a similar formation (three at the back), expect a cagey affair that might be defined by a moment of genius from the attackers of either side.
