Chelsea bounce back to winning ways.


No Costa, no problem. Jose Mourinho's side were ruthless on the night, beating Tottenham 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night to make it their 11th win of the season in the Premier League, extending their unbeaten run this season to 21 games.

Pochettino's side started the game really well, creating a few chances but weren’t able to find the back of the net.

Harry Kane's header hit the bar early in the game and his shot a few minutes later went a few inches wide. It could have been the wakeup call the Blues needed, they grew gradually into the game and responded as Eden Hazard found the net with a cool finish in the 19th minute after a one-two pass with Didier Drogba.

Drogba increased the lead in the 22nd minute after the 36-year-old Ivorian fired home Oscar's assist, making it his fifth of the season and 162nd for the West London side.

Mourinho's men were clearly the better side and had more resilience. Loïc Rémy came off the bench replacing Drogba in the 66th minute and the French man displaced Jan Vertonghen before scoring the third just seven minutes after coming on.

Before the match Mourinho said they believed in themselves and were focused which clearly was the case in the London derby.

Chelsea are back to winning ways and they head to Newcastle on Saturday looking to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table.
