Tottenham torment Chelsea to smash Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten Premier League record

Tottenham torment Chelsea to smash Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten Premier League record

Maurizio Sarri pulled no punches in his assessment of Chelsea's performance in the 3-1 defeat by Tottenham, describing it as a disaster from front to back and in every regard.

'I think that David was afraid to touch the ball and change the direction of the ball.

Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs' attitude in big games is improving after their convincing 3-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley.

The Blues' best opening fell the way of star performer Hazard, but his 20-yarder was easy enough for Hugo Lloris to deal with.

"On another day, if we'd been more clinical the scoreline could have been a lot more", Alli told BT Sport.

Brighton thought they were heading for all three points after Glenn Murray put them ahead early in the first half and James Maddison was sent off after 30 minutes.

Lukaku did have a goal of his own ruled offside, but United struggled to create clear chances outside of that, as Palace reeled off the occasional long-shot.

Salah opened the scoring on 67 minutes and Alexander-Arnold then fired in a superb free kick nine minutes later to double their lead.

"How we closed down the game was just brilliant especially the third goal". Leroy Sane too stomped his authority in the game hitting a goal in each half to make it 4-0 for his side.

Spurs swarmed all over Chelsea from kick-off and had their reward in the eighth minute when Alli headed Christian Eriksen's delightful free-kick beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The visitors were left with it all to do after just 16 minutes as a slow start saw them fall a couple of goals down to a Dele Alli header and Harry Kane's strike.

The result lifted Fulham off the bottom, with Huddersfield, who are away to Wolves on Sunday, dropping to last, while Southampton are fourth-bottom.

Ranieri couldn't stop Fulham leaking goals in his first match in charge at Craven Cottage, but did secure a first win in 10 league games as Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice to edge a five-goal thriller.

Elsewhere, Manchester United failed to close the gap on the top four as they were held by Crystal Palace - the sixth time they have failed to win in the league at Old Trafford this season as they were booed off the pitch by the frustrated home supporters.
