Chelsea cruised to a derby victory over Tottenham as Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva gave the Blues a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have struggled for form in recent weeks, but they were by far the better team against a Spurs team focused on frustrating the home team.

Global Tech News Daily

It could have been different for Tottenham had Harry Kane’s first-half strike stood, but the referee ruled it out for a foul on Silva as the striker controlled the ball.

Ziyech’s curling strike from distance gave Chelsea the lead just after the break, and ten minutes later Silva flicked home a free-kick as the Blues doubled their advantage.

Global Tech News Daily

Chelsea stay third in the table but move back to within ten points of Man City, but Pep Guardiola’s side have a game in hand. Tottenham are seventh, but their games in hand mean they still have a big chance in the top-four battle.

Japhet Tanganga 4

A weak link, particularly after he was booked. Too easily beaten by Callum Hudson-Odoi in build-up to Ziyech’s goal.

18:30 , Matt Verri

Chelsea back to winning ways in the League, while Spurs crash back down to earth after the euphoria of Wednesday night.

Given their injuries and absences, it was always going to be tough – and Kane’s disallowed goal felt significant. Ultimately though, this was another reminder of the work to be done and the gap between the clubs.

FULL-TIME

18:27 , Matt Verri

Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham

The Blues return to winning ways in the Premier League with a much-deserved victory over Spurs.

Tottenham came to make things awkward for Chelsea, but once the home side eventually took the lead there was no sign of Spurs ever getting back in it.

Comfortable afternoon for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

18:25 , Matt Verri

90+4 mins: Rudiger still bombing forward for Chelsea. Home fans desperate for him to let fly every time he gets the ball.

He gives away the free-kick though as he gets a bit too eager.

18:22 , Matt Verri

90+1 mins: Ziyech down with some cramp – no surprise, he’s been brilliant today and a constant threat.

Five minutes added on at Stamford Bridge.

18:20 , Matt Verri

89 mins: Gil on for Winks, as Conte makes his final change of the night.

Lucas Moura slides a ball through to Kane… straight out of play. There’s not going to be any late charge this time from Spurs.

18:18 , Matt Verri

87 mins: That is as close as Tottenham have come, the disallowed goal aside.

Corner swung in, Kane gets a good header at goal but Kepa is across really well to palm it behind. Hurt himself doing it too.

Alonso on for Hudson-Odoi, in the last few minutes.

18:15 , Matt Verri

84 mins: Kane drops deeper to get on the ball and he has space to turn.

Plays a really nice ball into Bergwijn on the edge of the box… he has more time than he realises but goes for goal first-time, and shanks it through to Kepa. Didn’t catch that at all.

18:12 , Matt Verri

81 mins: Lukaku looks like he’s playing his way into form with every minute that goes by.

Mount sends it down the line for the Belgian to run onto, and he’s one-on-one with Dier. Drives towards the box and tries to play it across to Kante, but Tottenham get back to intercept the pass.

18:10 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Hudson-Odoi holding his face. Doherty came in strongly to win the ball back and he caught the Chelsea winger.

Just over ten minutes plus added time left at Stamford Bridge. There’s been no sign of a comeback at all since Spurs fell behind.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

18:08 , Matt Verri

While Spurs are proving the most obliging of opponents again for Chelsea, you have to say this is the best Tuchel’s side have played since Juventus in November.

That have been some real standout performances from Mount and Ziyech in particular.

Kovacic has commanded midfield – and while Lukaku’s finishing has let him down, he has been a nightmare to handle.

18:06 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Sanchez fires a pass into Kane, who can’t hold it up and Chelsea can bring it clear.

Frustrating day for Kane, particularly with that disallowed goal. Played in a deeper position in the first-half and was hardly involved.

18:03 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Spurs enjoying more possession now as Chelsea are happy to sit off a bit more.

Very nearly wonderful from Hojbjerg. Lovely attempted reverse pass through Chelsea’s defence, just ahead of Doherty though. He would have been clean through.

Chelsea making their first sub. Kante on to replace Jorginho.

18:00 , Matt Verri

69 mins: Lukaku bursts into life as he turns Sanchez brilliantly to get himself space in the box. Lloris can beat away the shot though.

Spurs break, Skipp lays it out to Doherty and his effort is deflected and flies over the bar. Corner Spurs.

17:58 , Matt Verri

67 mins: Skipp with a rugby tackle of sorts in the penalty area as Azpilicueta tries to get on the end of a corner.

The referee gives… a free-kick the other way. Not sure about that decision.

17:56 , Matt Verri

65 mins: Sanchez with some great defending, other it was probably 3-0.

Ziyech drifting infield again, Tottenham have no answer to him at the moment. Tries to slide it through to Lukaku, but Sanchez on the stretch just about cuts it out.

Ziyech lets fly with his right-foot this time… straight at Lloris.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

17:53 , Matt Verri

Tuchel has had a lot to justifiably complain about in recent weeks.

But how fortunate has he been to have three games against Spurs during a run when Chelsea could barely win a coin toss?

17:53 , Matt Verri

62 mins: Ziyech knocks it past Davies, and he gets brought down. No advantage so it’s another free-kick to Chelsea in a really dangerous position.

Another great ball in, this time Kane flicks it on and over the bar. That could have gone anywhere.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stamford Bridge

17:51 , Matt Verri

After the euphoria of the win at Leicester, this is looking like a painful bump down to earth for Spurs and a reminder that their stirring win at the King Power has done nothing to close the gap to Chelsea.

17:50 , Matt Verri

59 mins: Skipp and Lucas are on for Tanganga and Sessegnon.

Tottenham have half an hour to turn this round. A nice knock down to Bergwijn sets him up for the bicycle kick, but it’s straight at Kepa.

GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham | Thiago Silva 55′

17:47 , Matt Verri

CHELSEA DOUBLE THEIR LEAD!

Tottenham are falling apart at Stamford Bridge. Mount with a lovely free-kick into the box, Silva goes up to flick it on and it’s perfectly past Lloris and into the corner.

Not quite sure who got the final touch … what is certain is that Chelsea are 2-0 up.

17:44 , Matt Verri

54 mins: It’s all Chelsea who have come out after the break with so much intensity.

Mount pings it wide to Hudson-Odoi, who is getting all kinds of joy running at Tanganga. Plays it back to the edge of the box, Mount whips an effort over the bar.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stamford Bridge

17:44 , Matt Verri

Just as it was in the Carabao Cup game here earlier this month, Ziyech has been Chelsea’s star man while Tanganga is Spurs’ weak link. The full-back was beaten too easily by Hudson-Odoi in the build-up to the goal.

17:43 , Matt Verri

52 mins: Interesting to see what Tottenham do now, and how long Conte waits before showing a bit more ambition.

They need to withstand this pressure first and ensure Chelsea don’t run away with it at the start of the half.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

17:41 , Matt Verri

I said in that first half that it was the best I’d seen Ziyech for a long time. And that goal was the sort of thing we saw from him when he was at his best under Lampard. Wonderful technique – and not far off getting a second moments later.

Chelsea have been the better side and hand the lead they deserve.

17:40 , Matt Verri

49 mins: Tottenham hanging on for dear life at the start of this half.

Ball comes out to Ziyech again, this time he goes for maximum power and Lloris saves well. What a brilliant start to the half from Chelsea.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Tottenham | Hakim Ziyech 47′

17:39 , Matt Verri

WHAT A GOAL! Hakim Ziyech breaks the deadlock with a stunning effort.

Hudson-Odoi breaks past Tanganga on the left, and the Tottenham man can’t touch him. Worked out to Ziyech, he works it onto his left foot and it’s an incredible curling strike into the very top corner. Lloris could not move.

17:36 , Matt Verri

Chelsea get us underway and at last the second-half has begun!

Back underway…

17:35 , Matt Verri

Second-half slightly delayed, looks like the linesman has found a problem with one of the nets.

Hugo Lloris watching on, someone now brought on to fix the issue and tie the gap up. Should be able to start again soon!

17:32 , Matt Verri

That’s now 225 minutes of football between these sides this month. Tottenham yet to score a single goal.

Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil on the bench as the most likely players to be brought on to try and change that…

Players in the tunnel ready to come back out.

First-half stats…

17:25 , Matt Verri

Chelsea with 75% of possession in the first-half, but that won’t worry Conte. He hasn’t picked a team to dominate the ball.

Seven shots for the Blues, just the one on target. That was Ziyech’s effort from range. Spurs have also had one on target, they’ll be hoping to cause Chelsea some more problems on the break in the second-half.

Chelsea fortunate?

17:23 , Matt Verri

NO GOAL ❌

HALF-TIME

17:19 , Matt Verri

And that’s half-time, with is still goalless at Stamford Bridge.

Relatively uneventful first 30 minutes, with Chelsea very much on top but unable to find a way past a resolute Spurs backline.

Romelu Lukaku had a couple of chances to break the deadlock, failed to make contact though with one of them. Biggest moment came with Harry Kane’s disallowed goal – Spurs will feel extremely hard done by with that decision.

45+2 mins: Chelsea free-kick in a good position, nice angle for Ziyech to whip an inswinger into the box.

Too much on it and Lloris can easily claim. Really poor delivery.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stamford Bridge

17:16 , Matt Verri

Tensions have risen here, with both benches furious at decisions in the last few minutes. Spurs’ bench couldn’t believe Kane’s goal was disallowed for a push, while Tuchel seemed to think Tanganga should have earned a second yellow for a tug on Hudson-Odoi.

Chelsea on top but Spurs frustrating them.

17:15 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Thiago Silva gets up to get on the end of another corner, over the bar again though. He’s had a couple of chances.

Three minutes added on at the end of the first half.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

17:14 , Matt Verri

Tuchel is furious about the treatment Hudson-Odoi is getting from Tanganga. It certainly looked like his shirt was being pulled there and yet nothing was given.

Understandable that he is so frustrated.

17:14 , Matt Verri

44 mins: Tuchel going crazy on the touchline.

Hudson-Odoi again knocks it past Tanganga, and the Spurs man does grab a hold of him but no foul given this time. Tuchel not impressed.

That probably would have been a second yellow had the referee given the foul. Dier then blocks well as Lukaku gets a shot away.

17:12 , Matt Verri

42 mins: That decision will stand, VAR won’t come to Kane and Tottenham’s rescue.

Was minimal contact on Silva, who made the most of it and threw himself to the ground. Chelsea survive.

GOOOO…. NO!

17:10 , Matt Verri

40 mins: Kane puts Tottenham in front, but the referee has ruled it out!

Sessegnon with the low ball into the box, Kane shrugs Silva off and then tucks it past Kepa. But Silva has won a free-kick, referee thinks Kane fouled him.

Very, very soft.

17:08 , Matt Verri

38 mins: A rare chance for Tottenham to break, as Hojbjerg flicks it through to Sessegnon who has the beating of Azpilicueta for pace.

Bergwijn is trying to get up with him, but Sessegnon drags a tame effort across the face of goal and the chance goes.

17:07 , Matt Verri

37 mins: Thiago Silva has company in the referee’s book.

Hudson-Odoi knocks it past Tanganga, the right-back can’t keep up with him and so hauls the Chelsea winger down. Yellow card. Nothing complex from Hudson-Odoi, but certainly effective.

17:05 , Matt Verri

35 mins: Azpilicueta makes the run to the byline, tries to lob it across the race of goal but it’s blocked behind for a corner.

Spurs have had to deal with plenty of set-pieces, but they’re doing well. Again they clear without any real sign of danger.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stamford Bridge

17:03 , Matt Verri

Spurs are managing to keep Chelsea at bay – and there have been a few signs of frustration from the animated Tuchel – but the visitors are offering very little in the way of attacking threat.

Winks has had a shot, Bergwijn looks bright but Spurs have barely made any meaningful inroads into Chelsea’s half.

17:03 , Matt Verri

33 mins: Spurs try and press a bit higher, and Chelsea are delighted they do so as the Blues play through them and Mount has space to burst into.

Mount cuts it back into the box, Lukaku with the run to the near post but he completely misses the ball. Big, big chance. Hudson-Odoi can’t find space for the shot at the far post.

All came from Hojbjerg breaking out of the shape and trying a one-man press, very nearly cost Spurs.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

17:01 , Matt Verri

It’s all got a bit messy here with lots of fouls. Chelsea definitely on top, but Spurs will be happy they held off that early charge.

Mount looks the most dangerous for Chelsea and Kovacic and Jorginho are bossing midfield.

Chelsea are noticeably trying to get the ball forward quickly, but the quality needs to be better.

16:59 , Matt Verri

29 mins: Tottenham not set up to have any sort of sustained possession, but their gameplan is clear as Dier sends it down the line towards Bergiwjn.

He holds it up well and draws the foul from Thiago Silva, who needs to be very careful having already been booked.

16:57 , Matt Verri

27 mins: Tanganga puts Hudson-Odoi under really pressure… too much pressure. Free-kick.

Kane picks it up on the halfway line, and tries to play Bergwijn through just as he did for the winner against Leicester during the week. Too much on the pass this time and it runs through to Kepa.

16:54 , Matt Verri

24 mins: Ziyech has it on the right, looks up and whips a really nice cross into the box. Lukaku is lurking but Dier is well-placed to head it away.

Bergwijn knocks it past Silva and tries to get away, but he’s tripped up. Yellow card for the Chelsea defender, he can have no complaints with that.

16:52 , Matt Verri

22 mins: Yet another Chelsea corner, deep to Rudiger and he nods it back into the six-yard box. Tottenham get it away.

Tanganga then goes flying into the advertising boards, as he gets a nudge from Mount who was trying to see the ball out.

16:50 , Matt Verri

20 mins: A VAR check for a red card, after Doherty lands on Sarr’s ankle as he goes to close the Chelsea defender down. Really painful one for the Blues man.

Sarr is going to be ok to continue, but he’s not happy at all with the challenge. Doherty escapes any punishment.

16:48 , Matt Verri

18 mins: Spurs starting to have a bit of joy on the counter. Corner is cleared and Bergwijn brings it forward.

He takes on Hudson-Odoi and beats him, but before he can look up and switch it to his teammates Azpilicueta comes sliding in to stop the break.

16:46 , Matt Verri

16 mins: Sanchez under no pressure rushes a clearance and he sends it straight up into the air…. his teammates are furious with that.

Spurs clear the danger to prevent it being a really costly decision, but they’ve conceded possession. And it’s going to be another corner for Chelsea, Mount causing Tottenham a lot of problems.

16:44 , Matt Verri

14 mins: Tottenham’s best moment of the match by far.

Kane tracks back on Chelsea’s left, wins it back and he’s calm on the ball. Knocks it inside for Winks and he drives into space and deep into Chelsea territory.

Nobody comes to close him down so he goes for the shot from just outside the box, comfortably held by Kepa.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

16:43 , Matt Verri

This is the brightest start Chelsea have made in a while. Ziyech and Mount are both combining well on the right and dragging Davies around.

That cut inside and shot from Ziyech moments ago was like the sort of thing he produced in his first season at the club, but rarely this.

16:42 , Matt Verri

12 mins: Ziyech decides against crossing it with his right foot, brings it back inside and keeps cutting in until the space for a shot opens up. Goes for goal from 20 yards out… Lloris parries it away.

Was close to him without too much pace, should have caught that really.

16:41 , Matt Verri

11 mins: Kane clipped, wins the free-kick and Tottenham have a chance to breathe.

Comes back to Dier and he brings it forward from centre-back, drives forward really and nearly gets into the Chelsea box but Silva nips in to win it back. Dier then gives away the foul, but that was good from the defender.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stamford Bridge

16:40 , Matt Verri

I make this the first time Conte has started with a back four at Spurs, reflecting the disruption caused by the knocks picked up at Leicester.

It is telling that Conte would rather rip his preferred system than call on Dele, Ndombele or Lo Celso.

16:39 , Matt Verri

9 mins: Tottenham have barely had a touch so far. Trying to stay solid in their shape, but they’re getting pulled around.

Ziyech tries to slide a ball inside Sessegnon through to Mount. Not the greatest pass, but the Tottenham full-back puts it behind for a corner.

Silva gets up well and wins the header, it’s over the bar though.

16:36 , Matt Verri

6 mins: Lukaku sends Hojbjerg flying to the ground, too strong for the midfielder.

Comes to Ziyech who is seeing plenty of the ball early on and again he can shift it onto his left foot. Shot from distance is deflected behind for a corner.

16:34 , Matt Verri

4 mins: Tottenham looking so shaky early on, not dealing with balls into the box at all.

Ziyech allowed to whip a cross in with his left foot, and Hudson-Odoi very nearly gets on the end of it at the back post. Tanganga does just about enough to put him off.

16:33 , Matt Verri

3 mins: It’s a 4-3-3 for Chelsea, with Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi either side of Lukaku.

For Spurs, a 4-4-2 as expected. Kane and Bergwijn leading the line, pretty much all on those two to provide the attacking spark.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

16:32 , Matt Verri

That’s a huge early chance for Lukaku. Mount did brilliantly to get the cross in and Lukaku, in space, should have at least hit the target.

16:31 , Matt Verri

1 mins: Chelsea could be ahead after 40 seconds!

Mount wide on the right, Sanchez comes out to close him down but doesn’t do enough and the cross comes in. Lukaku in space in the box on the half-volley, sends it over the bar. Decent chance on his weaker foot.

KICK-OFF!

16:30 , Matt Verri

We are underway!

Chelsea to kick back into top gear and get their league form going again, or Spurs to find an incredibly rare win at Stamford Bridge?

16:26 , Matt Verri

Here we go then… Conte saying hello to some familiar Chelsea faces sitting behind the dugouts.

Players are in the tunnel. Just a few minutes until the action begins at Stamford Bridge.

16:22 , Matt Verri

It’s not just Tottenham with a couple of notable absentees…

Leaving Kante out of such a big game is questionable. So is the lack of playing time for Havertz. Increasingly feels like Tuchel doesn’t know how to include him in a forward line with Lukaku #chelsea

— James Robson (@jamesrobsonES) January 23, 2022

16:20 , Matt Verri

Tottenham’s Giovani Lo Celso says he is “100 percent in good physical condition” after being left out of the squad for this afternoon’s match.

Lo Celso and fellow midfielders Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele were not named in Antonio Conte’s 20-man squad at Stamford Bridge but are all believed to be fit.

Shortly after the line-up was announced, Lo Celso took to Instagram to confirm he was not injured.

“Regarding the questions I received I would like to clear out that I am 100% in good physical condition,” wrote the Argentina international.

“I have no problem and I feel very well. I wish the best to my team in the derby today.”

Just under 20 minutes until kick-off at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham will be on a high after their late 3-2 win over Leicester, but this is a real test for them.

For Chelsea, a chance to put in another dominant performance against Spurs and to get their league form finally back on track.

Warm-ups underway…

    15:56 , Matt Verri

    Chelsea are third in the table, and victory this afternoon would take them to within ten points of City having played a game more than Guardiola’s side.

    It’s very difficult to read too much into Tottenham’s league position – they have four games in hand over Chelsea.

    Conte’s men are only two points behind Man United in fourth, and so victory today would lift them into the Champions League spots. That would put them in a brilliant position, having played fewer games than all of their top four rivals.

    James Robson at Stamford Bridge

    “This really is a crucial game for Chelsea.”

    Similarly there are plenty of different ways that Thomas Tuchel’s side could play with that line-up.

    Potentially a back five with Hudson-Odoi at left wing-back, but could also be a back four with Sarr filling in at left-back. Imagine neither manager will give much away in their pre-match interview either.

    15:34 , Matt Verri

    Bergwijn rewarded for his stoppage-time heroics against Leicester. It’s a flexible lineup from Conte, not certain exactly how Spurs’ shape will look.

    Neither Alli or Ndombele are in the squad.

    #thfc Four changes from Leicester, including a start for match-winner Bergwijn. Think it’s a switch to 442 but could also be 343 – with Davies at WB & Sess in the front three. https://t.co/uVqV9ogiVF

    Starting XI: Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Doherty, Hojbjerg, Winks, Sessegnon, Kane, Bergwijn.

    Subs: Gollini, Skipp, White, Lucas Moura, Rodon, Royal, Reguilon, Gil, Scarlett

    15:25 , Matt Verri

    Sounds like Dele Alli won’t be in the squad for Tottenham this afternoon.

    Spurs are willing to let the midfielder leave on loan this month, but there haven’t been any offers coming in yet. Feels like a move that would suit both club and player.

    15:20 , Matt Verri

    Ten minutes until we get all the team news from Stamford Bridge…

    Will Conte look to try something different to how he set up when Spurs were well-beaten on this ground a few weeks ago?

    Carabao Cup semi-final…

    15:01 , Matt Verri

    These two sides are very familiar with each other, having played a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final earlier this month.

    Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge in the first leg, and it was similarly comfortable away from home as they won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Antonio Rudiger.

    After the match, Conte had this to say on the gap between the sides.

    “In this moment we cannot compare Chelsea’s situation with Tottenham’s situation,” Conte said.

    “It’s not fair to compare the two situations. It’s impossible to compare.”

    Prediction

    14:43 , Matt Verri

    It’s tough to look past just how easily Chelsea dispatched Tottenham in the Carabao Cup even in light of Spurs’ Premier League form under Conte. Neither side has looked completely secure defensively in recent weeks, so there should be goals.

    With all of the games in hand Tottenham have, victory at Stamford Bridge would be a huge statement, but they may fall short again.

    Chelsea to win, 2-1.

    Tottenham team news

    14:31 , Matt Verri

    Eric Dier is back in contention for Spurs, although Heung-min Son continues to miss out.

    Conte also revealed that wing-back Emerson Royal was struggling with an injury when he was replaced at half-time at the King Power by Matt Doherty, and the Irishman seems likely to keep his place after a decent 45 minutes.

    Elsewhere, Conte must decide whether to hand Steven Bergwijn a start as reward for his stoppage time double, which earned Spurs a 3-2 win against the Foxes and saw them climb to fifth.

    Chelsea team news

    14:20 , Matt Verri

    Chelsea have been given a major boost by the return of Trevoh Chalobah and Reece James to training – but neither will be ready to face Tottenham in Sunday’s crunch clash.

    Both players have been out in recent weeks with hamstring problems, which has stretched Thomas Tuchel’s squad to the limit during their punishing schedule.

    Chalobah is expected to be back in action after the upcoming mid-season break, while James is also closing in on a return.

    But Tuchel will again be without Andreas Christensen for the Spurs game, while he continues to recover from a back injury.

    The Chelsea manager refused to give too much away regarding James’ schedule when speaking on Friday, but admitted: “We have a time frame but we will not make it public because otherwise we will just get asked about the timescale.”

    Predicted Chelsea XI: Kepa; Sarr, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Werner.

    Afternoon all!

    Hello and welcome to Standard Sport’s LIVE coverage as Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

    Thomas Tuchel’s side have slipped out of the title race after a really poor run of form, and further slip-ups could leave them looking over their shoulder in the top four race.

    Spurs have not lost in the league under Antonio Conte, but they were well-beaten by the Blues in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

    We have Dan Kilpatrick and James Robson at Stamford Bridge, and stay tuned for all the build-up and teams ahead of kick-off at 4:30pm GMT.
