Chelsea's 2-0 Win Over Tottenham Keeps European Hopes Alive | English Premier League

Trevoh Chalobah’s commanding header off Conor Gallagher’s precise free-kick marked the game’s pivotal moment, securing Chelsea’s early lead midway through the first half. Although a potential obstruction by Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella on Brennan Johnson prompted a protracted Video Assistant Referee review, the goal ultimately stood.

Despite occasional flashes, Spurs struggled to conjure clear-cut opportunities, with Cristian Romero’s header wide of the mark serving as their closest chance in the opening half.

The 71st minute saw Chelsea fortify their dominance as Cole Palmer’s expertly taken free-kick rattled the crossbar, allowing Nicolas Jackson to capitalize on the rebound with a clinical header into the empty net.

With this triumph, Chelsea ascended to eighth place, trailing Newcastle by a mere two points in the race for a coveted European berth.

In contrast, Tottenham finds themselves trailing Aston Villa by seven points, albeit with a game in hand, in their pursuit of fourth place.

This defeat further solidifies Liverpool’s claim to a Champions League berth for the upcoming 2024-25 season.
