They took advantage of the numerical advantage they gained by having two of their opponents sent off.
Chelsea, the winner of the ‘London Derby’, jumped to 10th place with 15 points (4 wins, 3 draws, 4 losses).
On the other hand, Tottenham, who suffered their first loss of the season
failed to regain the lead, remaining at 26 points (8 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss).
Manchester City (27 points) maintained first place.
Chelsea was dragged away by giving up the first goal to Dejan Kulusevski in the 6th minute of the first half.
A shot from the right was deflected greatly by the defense and was sucked into the goal. Chelsea were not so lucky.
But the ultimate winner was Chelsea.
Tottenham suffered self-destruction when Romero received a direct red card for rough play in the 33rd minute of the first half, and Destiny Udoji was sent off for accumulating warnings in the 9th minute of the second half.
This was compounded by the bad news of James Madison and Mickey van der Ven being replaced due to injury.
Chelsea did not miss this opportunity. Although Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario had a hard time making good saves, he was able to eventually break through Tottenham’s defensive line that was high up to the center line.
Nicola Jackson scored a comeback goal in the 30th minute of the second half and scored two more goals in extra time in the second half, scoring a hat trick.
Coach Pochettino enjoyed the victory after the game.
In an interview with Britain’s BBC, he said, “This is football.
We won and we deserved it.
(Video review) The technology is there and we have to accept it.
A lot of things happen on the pitch.
We have to check and check.” said.
Pochettino added: “Look at the game between Tottenham and Liverpool. Tottenham won in the last minute.
I think we deserve to get paid for our efforts.
Tottenham are doing fantastically well, but we were the better team tonight.” He added.
He didn’t forget to praise Jackson, who scored a hat trick.
It’s amazing, it’s really important to build confidence,” said Pochettino.
Obviously we couldn’t use all our players from the start.
The game against Manchester City is another opportunity for us to create the momentum we need and show that we are heading in a good direction.”
Coach Pochettino defeated Tottenham, his first enemy in four years.
Nevertheless, he drew the line that it was not special.
He said, “I’m happy because the three points mean a lot.
We have to get the points. Of course, I’m also happy to see people I haven’t had the chance to greet again.
But the most important thing to me is the win.
Just because the opponent is Tottenham doesn’t make it any more special.
No,” he said
Meanwhile, coach Pochettino shared a warm hug with his former student Son Heung-min after the game.
The two were together at Tottenham from 2015 to 2019. Coach Pochettino
who was sacked in November 2019, met again with Son Heung-min at Tottenham, who returned after four years.
Coach Pochettino also mentioned Son Heung-min before the game.
When asked how he would stop Son Heung-min, he joked, “I can’t play as a centre-back, can I? Our centre-back has to stop him,” and added, “Son Heung-min is a fantastic player.
He is a top player in the Premier League.
But that was the best night.
“I hope it doesn’t happen,” he added.
And Chelsea did well to block Son Heung-min, making coach Pochettino’s wish a reality.
Coach Pochettino, who became the winner, hugged Son Heung-min, who came to him, and patted his back and encouraged him.
He also showed his affection by making eye contact and patting his cheek.
Although the joys and sorrows were divided, the affection between the priests and priests remained the same.
