Premier League

Penalty proves To be Costly In Yesterday's Game between Chelsea And Spurs

We suffered our third Premier League defeat in eight days as a first-half penalty was enough to settle the game in Chelsea’s favour on Thursday evening.

In teaming rain at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the only goal of the contest came in the 24th minute when Eric Dier upended Timo Werner inside the area, referee Andre Marriner pointed to the spot and Jorginho stepped up for the visitors to convert the penalty past Hugo Lloris.It was a below-par performance from us in the first half, managing just the one shot on target in the sixth minute when Heung-Min Son fired straight at Edouard Mendy and we were very much second best. While we did improve after the interval, it was Chelsea with the better chances and they went close on a number of occasions, most notably in the 76th minute when Mason Mount hit a low left-foot shot that was heading for the far corner until Lloris stuck a strong hand to push the ball away.A late flurry of chances almost saw us salvage a point in the closing stages and Carlos Vinicius probably should have done better three minutes from time when he met Serge Aurier’s cross at the back post but guided his header just wide. Son then fired over the bar from the edge of the area in stoppage time and with that went our last chance of avoiding a third straight league defeat for the first time in eight years.
