Tottenham End Mighty Chelsea’s Unbeaten Streak

Tottenham End Mighty Chelsea Unbeaten StreakIt was a sad night for Premier League leaders, Chelsea, who were humbled by Tottenham Hotspurs on Wednesday at the White Hart Lane.

Antonio Conte’s men appeared to be fully up to the task, as Eden Hazard got the ball on the left and picked out N’Golo Kante inside with a very neat pass.

Unfortunately, Costa took one touch to place himself on the right spot, only for him to fire a shot well over the crossbar.

After about three minutes later, Gary Cahill was penalised with a yellow card after he duffed a header right at the feet of Christian Eriksen.

The match got more interesting and tougher as Victor Wanyama was also booked for a foul on Hazard.

Spirited Dele Alli finally broke the deadlock when he found an opening between Victor Moses and Cesar Azpilicueta to head to ball past Thibaut Courtois just before the half time whistle.

The striker, who was booked for celebrating with the crowd after a bullet header, headed another goal against the Blues with a brilliant cross from Eriksen who made the first.

The visitor tried their best to get a consolation goal but the Spurs were determined to make their victory a flawless one.

The match ended 2-0.

Despite the tough challenge, Chelsea are on 49 points with five points ahead of Liverpool while Tottenham are trailing with 42 points.

Liverpool Players Will Help Mignolet Win Golden Gloves – Skrtel

LiverpoolLiverpool defender, Martin Skrtel, says assisting goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet to win the Golden Gloves award will be one of Liverpool’s targets in their final three matches of the 2014-15 season.

The goalkeeper currently leads the standings in the race for the accolade, with his 14 clean sheets putting him ahead of the likes of Fraser Forster, Joe Hart and Thibaut Courtois.

While trying to secure a top-four berth is the most crucial for the Reds, Skrtel insists they’ll also be trying to help Mignolet get his gloves on the custodian prize at the end of the campaign.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s always nice to get a clean sheet, and Simon is at the top of the list. We will try to help him and we hope and believe he can win it.

“That will be one of the messages for the last three games – but not only for these last three games as we try to keep clean sheets as often as we can. At the moment we’re doing pretty well and we want to carry on in that way.”

Liverpool head into their last trio of matches trailing fourth-place Manchester United by four points in the race for Champions League qualification and Skrtel knows it’ll be difficult to overturn that deficit, but is adamant the Reds won’t be giving up on the hope of doing so until it’s mathematically impossible.

“It’s obviously not over because we still have a chance – and while we have a chance, we will fight for it,” said the 30-year-old.

“We will do all we can do to try and get into the top four and then we’ll see where we finish at the end of the season.

“We have to be honest – we know it is not in our hands, but we have to win our games and wait on United’s results. Then we’ll see. We are ready and we’ll be fighting.”

Meanwhile, Skrtel insists he remains fully committed to Liverpool.

The centre-back has been the subject of media speculation regarding his long-term future, but has confirmed he’s in negotiations regarding a new contract with the Reds.

“There is always talk about my position and my future.

“Almost every single transfer window there is always talk about myself leaving Liverpool and interest from other clubs.

“But as it stands, I still have a contract with Liverpool, I have an offer from Liverpool and we’ll see where we finish [with those talks].

“I am fully committed to Liverpool.”
