London is Blue: Our seven away derby wins in a row

Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

It was fitting that we matched our record of six consecutive away league derby wins against our fiercest of London rivals. They may not play at ‘Three Point Lane’ anymore, but there was a sense of deja vu as we made the journey home with three goals and three points in our pocket.

It was Tottenham who had the better of the opening 45 minutes, though, but we held strong at the back before a half-time tactical switch by Tuchel, introducing N’Golo Kante in a three-man midfield, changed the game.

We were on top throughout the second period, Thiago Silva dominating in the Spurs box to head in Alonso’s corner and open the scoring, before Kante’s deflected long-range effort and a fine finish by Antonio Rudiger from Werner’s cut-back ensured we made it six in a row in some style, with a 3-0 victory over Spurs that put us joint-top of the table.
