Chelsea bagged three crucial points against Tottenham on Monday night thanks to a hat-trick from Nicolas Jackson.
It was the end of a perfect start for Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham even though they started off perfectly through Dejan Kulusevski whose strike hit the back of Levi Colwill into the back of the net.
Nicolas Jackson almost made an instant reply but his effort was blocked by uglielmo Vicario. The remaining of the clash was filled with VAR controversies as Son Heung Min’s goal was ruled offside.

Sterling also had his goal disallowed for handball picked in the build up. Caicedo’s strike was also disallowed due to a challenge by Romero in the penalty box. Romero was sent out due to the dangerous tackle.
A penalty was given and Cole Palmer converted it calmly to level both sides before the break.
In the second half Udogie was sent off after picking his second yellow card of the clash. His exit opened up a Chelsea counter attacked that was capitalized by Jackson who was the main man of the night.
The result ended Tottenham’s unbeaten run who are second position with 26 points and sent Chelsea to 10th position with 15 points from 11 matches played.
