Not since year 2012 has Spurs endured 3 consecutive EPL defeats. Never before in his coaching career has Jose Mourinho lost back-to-back home league matches.
Being top of the standings 2 months back is becoming a distant memory for Spurs after being beaten by Chelsea 1-0 on Thursday night.
Spurs poor form was punctuated by the way England Midfieder Eric Dier recklessly fouled German striker Timo Werner to concede the spot kick, which Italy International Jorginho scored in the twenty fourth minute.
Now it's the Blues on the up again since Coach Frank Lampard was sacked ten days back, with 2 victories and a stalemate under Ex-PSG Boss Tuchel moving the London outfit up to 6th, 4 points from the Reds in 4th position.
While only one goal separated the two sides, the Blues dominated the match and avoided being unsettled by veteran centre-defender Thiago Silva limping off in the first period.
