Italian coach Maurizio Sarri harvested an undefeated record of 8 wins and 4 draws, fighting side by side with the also undefeated, Manchester City and Liverpool, until he faced Pochettino’s Tottenham, that with a great game of Son, were overwhelmed at all times and it was not until the 85th minute that they could discount it.
From the beginning Son was a gale, however, the first goal of the Spurs came from a free kick charged by Eriksen that Dele Alli combed and opened the score at minute 8′. The second goal was of its maximum exponent Harry Kane with a distant shot that surprised Kepa who did not even made the attempt to stop the chute. The third goal was a masterpiece of the South Korean, left behind Jorginho in the race, broke David Luiz and beat Kepa. A goal Maradona’s style with which he celebrates his 50th with the ‘spurs.
Chelsea’s discount came after replacing Morata, who was the worst of the match, completely disappeared from the engram and gave entry French striker Olivier Giroud, who is not very good, but at least made the goal of honor for the Blues.
Those led by Pochettino surpass those of Sarri in the table with this victory, leaving third with 30 points only behind Manchester City and Liverpool who won their matches by a landslide. For its part, Chelsea went down to fourth place with 28 and lose the unbeaten of the season. The Italian coach already knows what it is to lose in the Premier.
Chelsea will have to recover quickly from the defeat if they want to continue in the fight for the Premier League, City and Liverpool do not stop and remain undefeated, Tottenham has already won to them and Arsenal winning their match against Bournemouth on Sunday will be a single point away from Chelsea.
