Second half shakedown for Spurs
Whatever was said in the locker room at half-time for Tottenham seemed to stay in the dressing room as Spurs did not come out ready to play the second half.
Hudson-Odoi cut in and then made a simple square pass to Hakim Ziyech at the top of the box. As Ziyech took his time setting up his shot, both Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies backed away giving ample room for Ziyech’s cracker.
Lloris could only stand and watch as the ball curled right into the upper corner for the 1-0 Chelsea lead. Poor defending from Tanganga and then no defending from Davies, Sessegnon, and Lloris, left Spurs again behind and deflated.
Predictably, a foul outside the edge of the box would finish things off as Silva connected on a Mason Mount free-kick to give Chelsea the two-goal lead.
Ultimately, a couple of moments where the defenders shut off, and then a questionable foul were all Chelsea needed to again beat Spurs. As Tottenham sits in seventh heading into another international break, behind Arsenal on goal difference, about the only positive is Spurs have likely seen the last of Chelsea for this season.
