Tottenham dominated the initial phase of the game and scored the first goal deservedly. However, Chelsea soon found their rhythm and brought the game under their control by scoring a goal on either side of the halftime. Here are 5 Things we learned from Chelsea vs Tottenham.
High pressing in First half led to tired legs
Last weekend, Middlesbrough showed the teams how to play against Chelsea’s 3-4-3. Spurs had really done well to learn from it. The initial pressing and the transfer of play from defence to forward were impressive. Also, they pinned back the Chelsea wingbacks in their own half and rendered them ineffective. However, this led to Spurs’ own downfall in the second half. The Spurs players became tired and Chelsea settled in comfortably.
