The Spurs were very intense at the start of the match and came out to put pressure on a Chelsea team that was overwhelmed by the high pressure of its rivals. At six minutes, Dejan Kulusevski scored 1-0 in favor of the locals after a diagonal from the right towards the center that ended with his shot hitting Levi Colwill, a Blues defender who deflected the ball, dislodging goalkeeper Robert Sánchez who could not prevent the goal.

After the disallowed goal, Chelsea began to handle the ball and approached the goal defended by Guglielmo Vicario. At 23 minutes Raheem Sterling made it 1-1, but the VAR reviewed the play and sanctioned the Chelsea forward’s handball, so he did not get on the scoreboard.
At 27 minutes came the play where Niño Moi’s first goal with Chelsea was annulled.

The numerical advantage was greater when Destiny Udogie received a second yellow card for a foul on Sterling, leaving Spurs with nine players. The Blues began to have scoring chances with Jackson, but Vicario began to become a figure and Pierre Hojberg saved a goal on the line.
The Spurs stopped a short team with the nine players they had on the court and played away from their goal to leave the Blues offside.

Tottenham had tied the game again, but an offside by Eric Dier caused the goal to be disallowed.
At the end of the match, Jackson increased the lead with a play very similar to 2-1, but this time it was Conor Gallagher who assisted him to score the final 3-1, getting three important points to continue climbing positions. Jackson appeared again at 97′ to seal the final 4-1.
Despite being with nine players, the Blues had difficulty winning it, but finally took the victory. Mauricio Pochettino’s team has 15 points in the Premier League, which gives it tenth place in the standings.
