Tottenham vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League updates

Tuchel hopeful Rudiger can agree contract extension with Chelsea

Follow all the action as Tottenham Hotspur host rivals Chelsea in the Premier League this afternoon.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side sat top of the table heading into the international break but have lost momentum alarmingly in the last week. Their perfect start to the season came to a crashing halt against Crystal Palace last weekend, when Japhet Tanganga’s red card cued a 3-0 thrashing at Selhurst Park. That result was followed by an unconvincing 2-2 draw against Rennes in the Europa Conference League, during which both Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn suffered injuries.

Chelsea, however, are hardly suffering from a shortage of confidence. Thomas Tuchel’s side have only dropped two points so far this season, in a fiery clash against Liverpool, and opened their Champions League campaign with victory over Zenit during the week. What’s more, Romelu Lukaku is in seemingly unstoppable form, having scored four goals in as many appearances since sealing his return to west London. The Blues have history on their side, too, having lost just one of their last seven meetings with Spurs.

Follow all the action below.

Manchester United’s crucial late winner masks familiar flaws in title credentials

“It’s always the outcome that decides the headline that we’ll see,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Thursday.

And so Jesse Lingard’s sublime winner, followed by David de Gea’s strong penalty save from Mark Noble in the dramatic dying embers at London Stadium, ensures it’s all Glory, Glory Man United who defeated West Ham 2-1 earlier today:

Half-time: Tottenham 0 – 0 Chelsea

45+2 mins: Nothing to separate the teams then as they go into the break. Tottenham started lightning quick with a high press from their front three. They had the better of the game for around 25 minutes before Chelsea wrestled the momentum back after a decent amount of possession.

Clear cut chances in front of goal have been hard to come by but both teams have had their moments from outside the box. It’s been a close-fought match so far and that looks set to continue in the second half.

39 mins: Chelsea win a corner that Alonso curls into the box. Thiago tries to flick it on at the near post but he only manages to get it to Dele Alli. Dele attempts to clear the ball but gets it stuck under his own feet and Thiago sweeps it wide of the near post from his position on the floor.

36 mins: Hugo Lloris launches a long ball up to Son Heung-min but bounces off him under pressure from Thiago Silva and there’s nobody close by to pick up the loose ball in midfield.

Spurs are trying to target Thiago Silva one-on-one with Son so far the Chelsea centre-back has been up to the task.

33 mins: The Spurs fans don’t like that. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg releases the ball in the middle of the pitch but Mount has a nibble after the ball has gone. Hojbjerg goes down and wins a free kick.

Spurs send it up to Lo Celso who slots a lovely ball into the right side of the box. Son beats Alonso to the ball as Kepa Arrizabalaga comes flying off his line. Son gets there first and pokes it at goal only for Kepa to get a hand to it and stop the shot.

30 mins: Dier does well again up against Lukaku. Alonso wins the ball off Emerson high up the pitch. Tottenham think their right-back has been fouled but play goes on. Alonso floats a decent cross into the middle but Dier beats Lukaku in the air and manages to work it clear for Spurs.

27 mins: Chelsea are starting to find a foothold in the game now. Lukaku is getting plenty of service and this time he holds the ball up on the edge of the box before laying it off to Andreas Christensen. Alonso makes a run into the left side of the box but Christensen checks right and smokes a shot over the crossbar!
