Premier League: Chelsea thrash Tottenham 3-0 to go joint top with Man United, Liverpool in PL table- Chelsea has come out on top against Spurs for the 3rd consecutive match. The teams could not find a goal in the 1st half and the Spurs dominated most of the game. However, Tuchel brought on Kante instead of Mount and Chelsea put the pressure on the Spurs defense. The 1st goal of the game came in the 49th minute as Thiago Silva scored from Alonso’s corner. N’Golo Kante doubled Chelsea’s lead by a shot from long range that took a massive deflection from Eric Dier and found the bottom corner in the 57th minute. The 3rd and final goal was scored by Rudiger who shot the ball the first time from a cross by Timo Werner.
Chelsea’s dominant second-half performance earned a 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur thanks to goals by Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante, and Antonio Rudiger as the Blues moved joint top of the Premier League on Sunday.
The emphatic scoreline did not look likely in the first half as the hosts shaded it, but Chelsea took complete control after the break to send out an ominous warning in the title race.
Thiago’s header gave Chelsea the lead in the 49th minute and when substitute Kante’s deflected shot crept past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris shortly after there was no way back for the hosts.
Rudiger’s late strike was enough to give Chelsea an identical record to Liverpool with the two sides on 13 points from five games, both having scored 12 goals and conceded one.
