The 11th round of Premier League matches concluded on Monday with an exciting rivalry between Tottenham and Chelsea. The Blues overcame a deficit to defeat the Spurs 4-1. However, Mauricio Pochetiino’s men found it difficult to have an effect. Six minutes in, Kulusevski gave the score its first goal. Spurs believed they had extended their advantage to two goals, but Son’s effort was called back for being a few centimeters offside. At the half-hour mark, Cole Palmer’s penalty kick (the 35th) stirred Chelsea up. Following a strong tackle by Romero, his fellow countryman who was also sent out, Enzo was awarded the penalty.
Tottenham tied Chelsea at 10 men, but had to play with nine against eleven after Udogie was sent off for the second time in the 55th minute. The Blues had the advantage in numbers, but they couldn’t seize the lead. The finishing touches by Nicolas Jackson and Sterling were awkward. Despite a number of technical difficulties throughout the game, the pair was able to perform for the Chelsea supporters. The latter’s 2-1 goal (the 75th) was made possible by the former. In extra time, Jackson scored two additional goals (the 90th+3 and 90th+7). He now has five league goals, including this, his first hat-trick in the Premier League.
Manchester City (1st, 27 points) is now in top position after Tottenham (2nd, 26 points) suffered their first defeat.
