Annoys me when players get into a tiny scrap, one pushes a tiny bit harder and then the one being pushed starts moaning to the ref xD. Azpilicueta guilty of that. 

Or when players hold their faces when they go down.. no matter where they are touched, clipped on the ankle? roll around on the floor holding your face..

Not just because of the goal, but Silva has been remarkable for Chelsea. World class defenders such as him and JT was another one who apply themselves correctly add invaluable experience in their latter years. Just shows it's not all about the legs.

Definitely. Richarlison and Fernandes are 2 of the worst culprits.

Totally agree mate.. He surprised me greatly to be honest a good professional and a great experienced defender... I was reading an article about his time at PSG and despite wanting to stay they deemed him surplus to requirements because they said he was getting too old... Then they went and signed Ramos who was what? just 2 years younger than him, He said it made no sense.. I suppose he had the last laugh though going on to win the CL with us something he never achieved there...

CHO MOTM for me. Did very well to impose himself despite being isolated the entire game. Ziyech had Mount and Azpilicueta for support. 
 

4-0 & 8 goals for, 0 against whilst against Spurs this season.

There is no question that Spurs were done out of a legit goal. Obviously if that goes in it changes the complexion of the match.

However, take that moment out of the game, have they really looked dangerous? Really?

It's felt more like they have tried to contain Chelsea as opposed to trying to beat them. Really hasn't been much of a reaction to going behind and that's the sad thing. They looked beat at 2-0 and there's no visible belief they could get back in that. It feels a bit rinse and repeat in these games.

There's no doubt Chelsea have been better and deserve their points and I think Spurs, one dodgy decision aside, will need to take it on the chin. Chelsea have their number.

Mixed feelings about him... Thought he was superb to open up and create that goal for Ziyech, excellent play there, I just wish he was a little more decisive in the final third and he can get brushed off the ball a bit easily at times.. Been a good solid game from us today though and we got the much needed win we needed.. Spurs are always welcome at the Bridge.. B|

Was always evident at best he’s a squad player. Still loads of room to grow. 
 

Ziyech is a moments player. Needs a team built around him but this can be said about all of our attackers. Different profiles.

For me Ziyech is important as from the right he  can cut in and score a goal like today. That is important just now as our first choice Wbs are out.

It was a magnificent strike too.

CHO created the move by going past his man and though only seeing the second half never saw him do it again.

Never thought Spurs were out of this until the 93 min and for me a 6 pointer with top 4 in mind.

Thiago Silva’s a fucking cheat - robbed Kane of a goal and probably should have seen a red for that dive as he was already on a yellow.

The refs in this league need shooting, appallingly bad work from them today.

Really... I am pretty sure you are looking for a nibble here xD

Vicente Guaita caught Diogo Jota and conceded a penalty

Think we can all move on now... B|

But should Jota have been sent off? Nah, yellow card maybe. But definitely shouldn’t have been a pen.

But Silva robbed Spurs of a goal and probably should have gotten a second yellow.

But honestly, I don’t blame the players for cheating when the referees are so bad despite having video technology to help them out.

I don’t think there’s any fixing these refs, sadly. They’re all inept.

I think @RondónEFConce asked why they use referees for VAR and not a bunch of fat sweaty nerds who know the laws of football like the back of their hands.

Said it before and will say it again, as long as they don't have to answer questions about the decisions they make after the game then there is no accountability...

Elements of the game with hand-offs are starting to remind me of some of the joke wresting world and talking of wrestling for a different reason some of the midfield tussles and corners tussles are starting to like real wrestling too.

Azpi for me is a funny one adopts a super chutzpah attitude with the refs to wave away any fouls alleged against him though did think he got badly fouled later on and not even free-kick given. 

All detracts from the game, thank God some can deliver some moments of magic.

There's more to looking like someone than having the same moustache and hair combo xD
