Chelsea 2 – 0 Tottenham Hotspur Football Highlights
Venue : Stanford Bridge
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 57′ Pedro 1 – 0
Azpilicueta feeds Pedro on the right flank, and he has Alderweireld for company as he enters the box. He turns the Belgian superbly, has a go left-footed from an angle, and the ball squeezes in through the legs of Lloris!
Goal : 84′ Kieran Trippier (o.g.) 2 – 0
It’s a hopeful Chelsea punt upfield, which Giroud heads on to nobody. Trippier has it covered, with Willian chasing behind him, but his back-pass catches Lloris rushing out, and it rolls past the goalkeeper and into the net!
