Premier League / Matchday 5
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium / 19.09.2021
Hello and welcome to LIVE updates of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Chelsea. The lead up to the match has been tinged by sadness following the announcement of the passing of the now late, great Jimmy Greaves. The former England striker enjoyed goal-laden spells with these two London clubs and you can expect both sets of supporters to pay their respects around the ground today. Kick off 16:30 BST.
End of 2nd Half
FT: Spurs 0-3 Chelsea. Second-half goals from Silva, Kante and Rudiger move Chelsea joint top of the table.
GOAL! Rudiger guides a first-time effort into the bottom corner from Werner's smart cut back.
How isn't it three? Kovacic is blocked by Lloris at his near post after a superb dash into the left side of the box saw him get on the end of Lukaku's lovely pass.
Four minutes added.
Lukaku threatens again. He takes on two but does too much and his eventual strike is easily blocked on the edge of the area.
Lukaku meets a left-wing cross but powers his header straight at Lloris.
And still Chelsea continue to probe for the third. Spurs look beaten and the home crowd appear to have accepted their fate.
SPURS CHANGE: Sanchez on for Romero.
A real goalmouth melee! Somehow Spurs don't concede a third with Chelsea almost queuing up to finish them off. Werner and Alonso both went close!
It's looking more like Chelsea will add to their tally rather than Spurs putting together a comeback at this juncture.
Wonderful work from Lukaku. He skips beyond Dier but then unselfishly plays in Werner, who makes a real hash of it and the ball rolls away to Spurs' relief.
Almost three! Thiago Silva meets a right-wing corner but Lloris shows great reflexes to push it away.
Kepa is fine to continue. Play resumes. Can Spurs light the touch paper for a barnstorming finale or will Chelsea see it out?
The physios are now on looking after the Blues keeper.
Kepa comes way off his line to claim a long free kick from the right and hangs on tight. He then goes down with what looks like cramp!
CHELSEA CHANGE: Werner on for Havertz.
Spurs are pushing and looking for a response to find a path back into this match.
