The final score doesn’t do justice to the game’s intensity, with the hosts showing their full strength until the 94th minute when the Blues finally pulled ahead, Footballrover reports

Spurs took the lead barely six minutes into the game when Kulusevki’s shot was deflected in. However, the Blues quickly responded, partly thanks to Romero’s ill-discipline.

A high challenge by the defender on his international teammate Fernandez led to his sending off and gave Palmer the opportunity to level the score from the penalty spot, which he did with precision.

The hosts faced another major setback when Udogie received a second yellow card ten minutes into the second half. Despite their numerical advantage, Chelsea struggled to break down a resilient Spurs side.

However, the resistance was broken with 15 minutes left to play. James set up Sterling, who then provided the assist for Jackson to score.

Pochettino’s team couldn’t seal the deal and had a scare with Dier’s disallowed goal, along with close attempts by Bentancur and Son.
