Chelsea vs Tottenham 2 - 0 Goals Highlights

Chelsea cast aside the air of crisis surrounding the club and manager Maurizio Sarri with a thoroughly deserved win over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri dropped goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga following his refusal to be substituted in Sunday's Carabao Cup final defeat by Manchester City, re-asserting his authority and ensuring speculation about his future will be lifted, for now at least, after this excellent performance and victory.

Gonzalo Higuain hit the woodwork for Chelsea and Harry Winks had similar misfortune in the first half but Sarri's side saw their endeavour rewarded when Pedro's wriggling run ended with a shot between Hugo Lloris' legs at his near post after 57 minutes.

Harry Kane wasted a good chance to level for Spurs but this damaging loss was sealed in calamitous fashion when Kieran Trippier turned Olivier Giroud's flick past Lloris into his own net with six minutes left.
