Tottenham Hotspur 0-2 Chelsea, Willian double earns Chelsea deserved win at Tottenham

Chelsea return to form in style with a deserved 2-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur, who ended Sunday’s Premier League fixture in North London with 10 men after the dismissal of Son Heung-min.

Willian put the Blues into the lead during the early stages, before a wild challenge from Paulo Gazzaniga on Marcos Alonso gave the Brazilian the chance to double his side’s lead before the break.

Spurs’ misery was compounded during the second half as Son was dismissed for kicking out at Antonio Rudiger, leaving Chelsea to see out the rest of the game with relative ease.

Chelsea have now opened up a four-point gap over fifth-placed Sheffield United, while Spurs remain in seventh position after a poor performance in front of their own supporters.

This feels like an important win for Chelsea and Lampard, who witnessed his developing side keep just their fifth clean sheet in all competitions since his arrival in the summer.
