Tottenham Hotspur dented their own Premier League top-four hopes yesterday when they took on Chelsea in North London.
The Blues won the match 2-0 at a canter, with Spurs offering little in the way of energy or attack. Spurs handed the visitors a goal by not shutting down a short corner, before giving away a penalty to double Chelsea’s lead.
While Tottenham did have the chance to overtake the Blues into fourth with a win, the gap between the clubs is now restored to six points.
Not only this, but there is long-term damage to the Spurs squad as Heung Min Son picked up a red card for a kick out at Antonio Rudiger. Spurs have appealed the decision, which was awarded by VAR on the day (Sky Sports).
Jose Mourinho has now claimed that, if it is not overturned, Son will be punished five times for the incident.
He lists these as (Football London):
- The foul on Son by Rudiger that was not given
- Being sent off on the day
- Missing the Brighton game
- Missing the Norwich game
- Missing the Southampton game
