Tottenham secured a 2-0 win against Chelsea in a recent match held at Tottenham’s home ground. The defeat added to Chelsea’s woes, who have won only two games in 17 games and scored just four goals in 2023. In February, they managed to score only once.
Oliver Skipp scored the match’s first goal, which happened to be his first goal for Tottenham. He expressed himself by saying:
“The first goal is always a special one, and in that game, it means a lot. I think I cut across it slightly; it wasn’t completely perfect, but we work a lot in training on getting to those second balls on the edge of the box. It just bounced up nicely, and I thought I’d give it a hit!”Oliver Skipp
Harry Kane added to Tottenham’s lead and later commented,
“It’s a really important result. Chelsea are a top team, tough to play against, and we struggle at home against them. We played really well, especially in the second half when we put our foot on the pedal, and we earned the win. We spoke a lot recently about how clean sheets are going to win you games, and we’ve done that well apart from the Leicester game, which was a blip. If we want to be around the top four at the end of the season, we’ll need more performances like that today.”Harry Kane
Chelsea’s poor form has led to calls for Manager Graham Potter’s sacking, but Ben Jacobs has reported that the club’s hierarchy supports the manager and is not thinking about sacking him.

Despite the recent loss, Chelsea still hope to turn their fortunes around and prove themselves in the upcoming matches. They have a talented squad and it remains to be seen how they respond to this setback.
