🚨 Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham: Blues back to winning ways with deserved victory over Spurs

Chelsea bounced back to winning ways in the Premier League as they comfortably saw off Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 on Sunday evening. 

Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva got the goals for Thomas Tuchel's side to bring to an end the recent winless streak. 

The match got off to a slow start with no clear chances created in the opening half, but jolted to life in the second period as Chelsea took the lead three minutes in is spectacular fashion. 

Ziyech perfectly collected a pass on the edge of the penalty area from Callum Hudson-Odoi, and produced a nice strike into the top left corner, leaving Hugo Lloris with absolutely no chance. 

It was 2-0 in the 55th minute as Mason Mount flighted the free-kick into the box, where Thiago Silva peeled off his marker and headed straight inside the upright from the edge of the six-yard box. 

This was Antonio Conte's first loss in the Premier League since taking over from Nuno Espirito. 

The win saw Chelsea move to 47 points, 10 off league leaders Manchester City, who drew 1-1 away to Southampton on Saturday.
