Tough week, Chelsea boss concedes and spoke to owners

Follow live updates by: Tottenham homeowner chelsea inside Premier Leaguewith Graham Potter‘s side is desperate to win in today’s London derby.

Chelsea have won just twice in their last 14 Premier League games, facing a pathetic flow of form that has bottomed out even more after their 1-0 home loss to Southampton last weekend, and a Spurs team soaring with their win over West Ham last time. .

The result carried Tottenham into the top four and Antonio Conte‘s side could tighten their hold on fourth place by taking three more points this afternoon, but the Italian will once again be missing from the sidelines.

Chelsea’s hopes in the first four are weak and defeat will certainly close the door completely. It would also increase the pressure on Potter’s position. Chelsea’s manager revealed on Friday that he and his family have faced death threats due to his poor health, but the defeat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be another test of the club’s patience.

Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea

69. minute: Great game from Chelsea! Zakaria and Felix are working the ball on the left side, combining nicely with a series of one-touch passes.

Felix sends the ball to Mount, who sent it into the box for Havertz. The forward holds himself offside and chases after the ball but loses to him, but Fraser Forster, who suppresses the danger, widens.
