0 Comments

LONDON — We are at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium for Tottenham vs Chelsea, as the Blues beat Spurs 3-0 in a huge clash between London rivals in the Premier League.

This really was a game of two halves, as Chelsea dismantled Spurs in the second 45.

With the sad news about the death of legendary striker Jimmy Greaves (who played for both teams) arriving in the hours before kick off, both Spurs and Chelsea paid tribute to one of England’s all-time greats.

On the pitch, Nuno Espirito Santo and Thomas Tuchel locked horns in cloudy and drizzly settings, as all eyes were on Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku as they led the line for their teams. But it was Tuchel’s half time tactical switch which stole the show, as N’Golo Kante came on and helped Chelsea control midfield.

Below you will find Tottenham v Chelsea analysis, reaction and videos as well as post-game interviews and much more. 


Tottenham vs Chelsea reaction, analysis, videos from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in north London!

The managers and players are now here to talk to the media. N’Golo Kante, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thomas Tuchel look pretty happy. And rightly so.

Tuchel is now speaking to us in the post-match press conference:

“We didn’t change the system, it just felt like we did. We had a feeling that every 50-50 duel went against us. That had to change. If you had N’Golo on the bench and wanted to change this pattern of the game, he is the best player to bring. We wanted to improve our compactness, ball wins, spirit as a team.”

“I am happy with the reaction. We played a very strong second half and deserved to win this game.”

Tuchel adds that Edouard Mendy missed out due to a kick against Zenit. Says it is ‘very, very painful’ and he didn’t feel comfortable to land on it.

“If you have N’Golo, you have something everyone is looking for!” smiles Tuchel. “It is hard to believe how good he is.”

Thomas Tuchel spoke to our partners in the UK at Sky Sports and he was asked if it was a game of two halves:

“Yes it was, you’re absolutely right. I was absolutely not happy with the first 45 minutes. There were individual performances which were great in the first half from Kepa and Thiago Silva. Even more players were good but in general we lacked intent, energy and relentless in duels and 50-50 balls,” Tuchel said.

“I had the feeling we wanted to impress by pure skills but in derbies like this it is not always about just skills. It is about aggression, winning duels and performing better as a team. We spoke clearly about it at half time. In the second half it was a very good performance and a deserved win in the second half. It was a very good reaction so I am happy with the performance in the second half.”

Tuchel was also asked about the decision to bring on N’Golo Kante for Mason Mount attack  half time, which clearly changed the game:

“It was a hard choice for Mason Mount and it was a bit more defensive from N’Golo Kante but I wanted to give energy,” Tuchel said. “I was not ready to talk about the spaces here and there. It was about the second balls and duels. It was about growing in confidence through energy and ball wins and higher work-rate. That was the signal to the talk more or less.”

Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t look too upset, for now. Dele Alli looks a little upset. Spurs were second best by a long way in that second half.

Here is what Nuno had to say….

“The first half was very good, we competed really well and were the better team, competing and pressing well. Until the first goal, after that the game changed and became very hard for us. If there are any positives, it’s the first half,” Nuno said.

“I don’t know if we surprised them but we had to start the match really strong. The plan was to score and there were chances to do it. We didn’t do it. The goal was disappointing. the set piece, the team after that struggled to regain control of the game. We should’ve done better but that’s what we say since we started, we have a lot to improve and a long way to go. We keep on doing it. The belief is here. The boys are doing it. Totally different games. Crystal Palace totally out of our memories. You have to realize a different opponent and at home our fans deserved better. The first 45 minutes was huge and now we have to grow.”
Nuno adds to us in the written press conference that Tottenham cannot compare themselves to anyone else, they have to realize where their squad is at and the game changed due to one set piece situation. Nothing else.

FULL TIME: Emphatic win for Chelsea in the end. Thomas Tuchel’s side were dominant in the second half and totally deserved that win. Spurs started well but never recovered after N’Golo Kante came on and Chelsea wrestled control of midfield. Chelsea joint top of the league with 13 points from a possible 15 to start the season. Tuchel will be happy with that. Usually, he’s very happy regardless.

GOALLLL! Antonio Rudiger puts Chelsea 3-0 up in stoppage time. Timo Werner did superbly to set him up. That was slick from Chelsea, but Spurs were so slow to react.

Timo Werner has come close on a couple of occasions, so too has Lukaku, and Chelsea have been utterly dominant. Tuchel’s boys have wasted so many chances today.

76th minute: Almost another headed goal from a corner for Thiago Silva. Hugo Lloris brilliantly flicks his header away. Chelsea could be out of sight here. A really bad second half from Tottenham, this.

You have to hand it to Thomas Tuchel. His half time switch to bring on Kante for Mount, play three centrally and tuck Havertz inside to partner Lukaku has worked a treat. Tottenham no longer have time or space on the ball. Brilliant tactical adjustment from Tuchel, which we’ve come to expect now.

GOALLLL! Another one for Chelsea. This one was lucky, though. N’Golo Kante has loads of time and has a pop from distance. His tame effort looks to be going wide but it deflects off Eric Dier, flies in the opposite direction, hits the post and goes in. Spurs cannot believe it. Chelsea in dreamland and they were dominant.

53rd minute: Almost 2-0 to Chelsea! Havertz crosses and the ball finds it way to Alonso. His effort is cleared off the line brilliantly by Eric Dier. Chelsea have totally wrestled control of this game. Kante, Kovacic and Jorginho dominating in midfield.

GOALLLLLL! Chelsea take the lead, and it is deserved after their start to the second half. Marcos Alonso had a volley saved, then moments later his corner is headed home by Thiago Silva. He just wanted it more than the Spurs defenders, as he beat Dele Alli in the air easily. 1-0 to Chelsea!

N’Golo Kante is on at half time. He replaces Mason Mount, he didn’t really get involved. Straight away Chelsea have more control of the game.

HALF TIME: A very even first half. Good chances for both teams in the opening 45 minutes. Christensen went close for Chelsea. Son has gone close a few times for Spurs. Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea.

44th minute: Break in play as Tanguy Ndombele is down. Looks like he has got something in his eye, or lost a contact lens back there.

Bit of banter flying back between the two sets of fans! Love this.

“We forgot that you were here,” sing the Spurs fans after the Chelsea fans have a little go at Son. “Champions of Europe, you’ll never sing that!” is the response from the Chelsea fans. Hmmm. That seems to have hushed the Spurs fans. For now.

ANOTHER BIG CHANCE FOR SPURS! – 33rd minute: Heung-min Son is played in by Lo Celso but he is clattered by Kepa as the Chelsea goalkeeper bravely comes out to collect the ball.

Here’s a great piece of analysis from our very own Robbie Mustoe and Tim Howard on what makes Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku so good.

Both superstar strikers have been well marshalled so far today. So far being the key word…

HUGE CHANCE FOR TOTTENHAM! – 21st minute: Great advantage played by the referee after Dele Alli was clattered. Sergio Reguilon is played clean through but his ball to Lo Celso is cut out superbly by Antonio Rudiger. Harry Kane’s shot from distance then caused Kepa some problems but Chelsea clear. Tottenham look very dangerous.

15th minute: First big chance for Chelsea! Lukaku spins Dier and sets Mount away. He connects with Lukaku but the ball back to Mount is just behind him and Spurs manage to block. A glimpse at Chelsea’s lethal counter-attacking threat there. Tottenham look dangerous too. Good tempo to this game.

9th minute: Spurs keep putting Chelsea under pressure and aside from one counter attack led by Kai Havertz, the Blues have hardly had a kick.

KICK OFF: Tottenham have come flying out of the traps as Lo Celso and Harry Kane both go close. Heung-min Son making a nuisance of himself.

Very emotional scenes here as Spurs and Chelsea pay tribute to the late, great Jimmy Greaves.

Welcome to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!

The atmosphere is crackling here for a big London derby.

Pre-amble: Chelsea hammered Aston Villa last weekend to go four games unbeaten to start the season and keep themselves level on points with fellow title contenders Liverpool and Manchester United. Since then, Romelu Lukaku played the role of hero in the UEFA Champions League (he also scored twice against Villa and once again Arsenal on his Chelsea re-debut), furthering lifting spirits and hopes at Stamford Bridge that this year’s side could ultimately achieve something very special. Lukaku’s arrival and fast start have raised the ceiling immeasurably in three short weeks, with Tottenham simply the next name on his hit list.

Speaking of Spurs, the setback came in the form of a 3-0 hammering by Crystal Palace, ending Nuno Espirito Santo’s perfect Premier League start (and defensive record) as Tottenham boss rather abruptly. Tottenham finished the game with 10 men (the score was still 0-0 at the time of Japhet Tanganga’s red card), and Palace scored three times after the 75th minute. From top of the Premier League table, all the way down to 7th place and a goal differential of 0 — just like that.

Mexico fall short of miraculous escape in win over Saudi Arabia

0 Comments

Mexico scored the first goals and picked up their first win at the 2022 World Cup on Wednesday, beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 to close out play in Group C, but the margin of victory wasn’t large enough to advance to the knockout rounds.

WATCH FULL MATCH REPLAY

Instead, Poland (4 points) will join Argentina (6) in the round of 16 by way of their superior goal difference (0 to -1) to Mexico (4 points). For nearly 45 minutes, the tiebreaker in question was fair play points (yellow and red cards) with the sides matching one another identically at this World Cup.

After failing to score a goal in either of their first two games, Mexico needed an offensive explosion on Wednesday, and to some degree they got one. Their 2.10 expected goals were more than double their outputs from games no. 1 (0.72 vs Poland) and 2 (0.27 vs Argentina), combined.

Henry Martin got Mexico on the board just two minutes after halftime, turning home Cesar Montes’ flick of a corner kick at the near post. Five minutes later, it was 2-0 after Luis Chavez smashed a dipping free kick home from 32 yards out.

As Mexico pushed more and more numbers forward in pursuit of the third goal that would send them through to the knockout rounds for an 8th straight World Cup appearance, El Tri were hit on the counter-attack. Salem Al Dawsari’s stoppage-time consolation goal was the final, decisive blow.

Key storylines, players to watch closely

The Saudis have arguably been the most fun team at the tournament amongst non-powers, always running and getting exceptional goalkeeping. Salem Al-Dawsari was very good in both games but his missed penalty before halftime against Poland looms large of a match that could’ve been 1-1 going to the break and instead ended 2-0.

Mexico has not scored at the tournament so far, and Raul Jimenez has only been used as a super sub. Hirving Lozano and Alexis Vega combined for just three shot attempts before being subbed out of the Poland loss, while Lozano and Henry Martin combined for two versus Poland (Vega attempted five). They need better up top to keep up their streak of making Round of 16 appearances at the World Cup.

What are the group stage tiebreaker rules at the 2022 World Cup?

0 Comments

The 2022 World Cup is already well underway and through the first matches of the group stage, the tournament has been marked by unpredictability and upsets, including Saudi Arabia toppling Argentina and Japan edging out Germany thanks to a late comeback. While one loss doesn’t necessarily mean these pre-tournament contenders won’t make it to the knockout rounds, it does make the path significantly harder. Read on to see the World Cup tiebreakers that may come into play in determining which teams advance to the next round and continue on the path to soccer’s greatest glory.

How many teams will advance from the World Cup group stage?

Of the 32 teams at the 2022 World Cup, only 16 will advance to the next round of the tournament. The top two teams in each of the eight groups will advance to the Round of 16. From there, the tournament will be a single-elimination competition, with eight teams making it through to the quarterfinals and four to the semifinals. The winners of the semifinal matches will play in the final, while the losers will meet in the third-place playoff.

What are the tiebreakers for the group stage at the World Cup?

If two or more teams have an equal number of points after the conclusion of group stage matches, FIFA will use the following tiebreakers to determine which nations advance:

  • Goal differential – the team with the higher goal differential (total goals scored minus total goals allowed) will have the higher ranking
  • Number of goals scored – If multiple teams have the same number of points and equal goal differential, the team with more goals scored will be given a higher ranking than the lesser-scoring team

World Cup draw rules

If two or more teams are still “tied” after applying these tiebreakers, FIFA moves on to a second round of tiebreakers:

  • Greatest number of points obtained in group matches between the teams concerned
  • Superior goal difference resulting from the group matches between the team concerned
  • Greatest number of goals scored in all matches between the teams concerned
  • Highest team conduct score – team conduct score is based on the number of yellow and red cards a team has obtained. The team with the highest team conduct score will receive the higher ranking.
    • Yellow Card: Minus one point
    • Indirect Red Card (acquired via two yellow cards): Minus three points
    • Direct Red Card: Minus four points
    • Yellow Card and Direct Red Card: Minus five points

World Cup yellow card rules

The “team conduct” tiebreaker or “fair play” tiebreaker was first used at the 2018 World Cup – Japan and Senegal stood equal after all other tiebreakers were applied but Senegal had more yellow cards and was subsequently eliminated. Japan advanced to the Round of 16.
