Well…. I was wrong. I really thought that Tottenham would come through this one, even with Gareth Bale and Mousa Dembele out. In the end, Chelsea was just far too strong. Juan Mata was especially dangerous and was creating every time he touched the ball. Torres made some fantastic runs and worked hard, but wasn’t able to get any goals out of it. The combination of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar has paid dividends and at this point, I don’t see Chelsea relinquishing first place.
Tottenham had plenty of chances (27 shots with 10 on goal!) but 17 off target is just too many to waste. Tottenham probably should’ve gotten more out of it, but their lack of finishing was costly.
