Chelsea defied the odds to claim a huge 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Sunday, in a win and a performance that typified the Blues’ entrenched ability to claim good results in unaccommodating circumstances.
Marcos Alonso opened the scoring with a stunning free kick as Chelsea controlled the early stages of the London derby, while Tottenham’s relentless pressure from half an hour onwards finally told when Michy Batshuayi headed into his own net from a Christian Eriksen set piece with just eight minutes left on the clock.
But the hard work the likes of Andreas Christensen, David Luiz and N’Golo Kante produced defensively paid off when Alonso darted forward to once again find the net, his shot sneaking under the body of Hugo Lloris at the near post.
So, Chelsea fans, who deserves the Man of the Match award from yesterday’s game; brace-bagger Alonso, one of the Blues’ performers at the back or Willian who created the most problems for Spurs’ defence? Let us know by voting below…
