Spurs sink Chelsea as City and Liverpool continue EPL lead

Spurs sink Chelsea as City and Liverpool continue EPL lead

The home side started brightly enough at Old Trafford with Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba back in the fold, but the early pressure gave way to yet more lethargic play, with Palace nearly striking first blood with a headed goal that was ruled offside.

Spurs climb above Chelsea into third in the table with the win.

In the next 28 days, Chelsea have nine games across three different competitions.

Manchester City continued its dominant run in Premier League on Saturday at the expense of a sorry West Ham side while Liverpool also produced a masterful display to edge past Watford in a one-sided game. But they are yet to face one of the big six in the league away. His goal was followed by fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold's strike and former Hoffenheim hitman Roberto Firmino made it 3-0 for the Reds.

In order to accommodate Jorginho, Kante, who many consider to be the best defensive midfielder in the world, has been moved to the right wing.

After this game, follows a Europa League game against PAOK where Chelsea have the luxury of resting the bigger names.

Considering Tottenham's disappointing record against the other top four teams - two losses at home to Man City and Liverpool - you would expect Mauricio Pochettino to be willing his team to a much-needed victory in this department. Over the Christmas period, Chelsea only face City in December and don't face another top six team until the 19 January when they go to the Emirates to play Arsenal.

"We started games always thinking we were going to win".

Odion Ighalo cancelled out Erik Lamela's first-half opener, but substitute Son ensured the travelling Spurs contingent went home with a late Christmas present when he latched onto Kieran Trippier's low cross in the 89th minute.

Lukaku did have a goal of his own ruled offside, but United struggled to create clear chances outside of that, as Palace reeled off the occasional long-shot. Whoever is playing up front either Morata or Giroud need to show their worth to this Chelsea side and take any chances that come their way to avoid Sarri looking to the transfer market in January.

Here's hoping their approach won't reflect on the game at hand.

Morata, 26, is a year older than the Tottenham striker, but watching the two of them on the same pitch makes the Chelsea man look like a novice when it comes to performing the role of a centre-forward.
