However, I'm out. Here's the match report again. Goodbye!

Mickey van de Ven He admits that the Champions League places seem a long way off for Tottenham:

Today the performance was not good for us. I think we can do much better, play much better football. In the first half we didn't even come out and when we did we didn't go forward. In the second half we wanted to play, and I think we tried to play, but there was not that confidence. I don't want to say that our confidence has been lost. It's important that we recover well and come back at the weekend.

On selected pieces:

We know what to do, but every ball goes into the goal at the moment. Of course, that couldn't happen, two goals again coming from set pieces. But it's not like every time they take a free shot, I think it's going to be a goal.

David Hytner reported on the match from Stamford Bridge:

Ange Postecoglou says he does not care about questions raised about Tottenham's inability to defend securely from set-pieces. The manager believes he will get it right. But he could not avoid another wave of them as his side suffered a third successive defeat, their season in increasing danger of fading away.

It was Chelsea's night, a victory that fired up their hopes of finishing in the Europa League in what has been a relentlessly testing season. It was an excellent first-half performance, and Spurs were so poor that Postecoglou was frustrated on a number of occasions. It was hard to remember seeing him so unhappy.

Pochettino: “It's the first time this season that I feel very happy.”

Mauricio Pochettino now appears:

We have some positive things. Not much, but we believe in our players and trust them. We really thought it was an opportunity to show that we believe in what we do, our ideas, and our philosophy. Facing a team like Tottenham is never easy, it's a derby, but today was great. Full thanks to the players, the way they approached the game, the way we tried to play, I think it was fantastic. I think this is the first time in the season that I feel really happy. It's the moment, after 10 months, that the team starts to realize how much we need to compete. I don't know if this is the best performance but the most important thing is the feeling. Under all circumstances, it showed that we are doing things well. I think the whole team was connected at both stages.

Trevoh Chalobah had a chat with Sky:

I was working on headers, and we worked a lot on set pieces. It was a perfect ball for me to attack. I worked a lot in training, just on my own, and that's what hard work does.

For me, I've been through a lot in my career. It's just important that we stay focused. I know my abilities. And just to keep working. I trained well and the coach recruited me, and every time I put on the jersey I want to do my best and do my best.

The quality of players we have, the ability we have, the moment we get that consistency, we will fly. We just need to stay grounded, stay humble.

The league table now looks like this. Tottenham need to beat either Liverpool or Manchester City, plus the other two games, to have the slightest chance of qualifying for the Champions League (Villa play Brighton (A), Liverpool (H) and Crystal Palace (A), and you're thinking they might get On three of these points). Chelsea is three points away from sixth place with a better goal difference, and has much better matches than Manchester United, who still have to face Arsenal and Newcastle.

Final score: Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham

Involved

90+5 minutes: Gill's cross from the left bounced across the edge of Chelsea's six-yard box, without any Tottenham player approaching it.

Involved

90+4 minutes: Jimmy Turiainen replaces Jackson. To answer your question, yes, that's a lot of vowels.

Involved

90+2 minutes: Tottenham wins the ball just inside their own half and breaks; Son passes the ball to Bentancur, who steps wide with his feet.

Involved

90+1 minutes: The ball eventually fell to Hojbjerg, behind the far post. It exists in all kinds of spaces, but he touches it and suddenly he has nothing left at all.

Involved

90+1 minutes: There would be six minutes of stoppage time, and they would start with a corner for Spurs after Maddison's shot was deflected wide.

Involved

89 minutes: Bentancur's 25-yarder is clumsy and dribbles apologetically into Petrovic's arms.

Involved

Involved

86 minutes: Chelsea have another free kick, this time to the right of the penalty area. Lo Celso replaces Emerson Royal.

Involved

84 minutes: Gilchrist comes down and Chelsea's physiotherapists come to have a look at him. It seemed that his night was over. It was very positive – I can't say he didn't make a mistake, but he didn't look where he was. Josh Acheampong makes his Premier League debut.

Involved

83 minutes: Tottenham continue to have possession of the ball, but do nothing with it.

Involved

80 minutes: Spurs see a lot of the ball in the last few minutes, but they still have no idea what to do with it. “I was full of downright indignation today about England getting four Champions League places to Germany's five and Italy's five, but honestly, when I watch Tottenham tonight, there's no way they deserve to be in Europe's elite,” an angry Felix Wood said. “Ignorant at the back, clueless going forward. Chelsea's full-backs basically have to stand still and ask Johnson to kick the ball at them or pass a cross under their heads miserably.

Goal! Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham (Jackson, 72 minutes)

71 minutes: Chelsea win a free-kick five or so yards outside the D, and Cole Palmer is looking forward to it.

Involved

68 minutes: Son passes to Johnson, who passes a low ball too far for Emerson Royle to be turned into the net. It turned out that Son was offside at the start of the move, so it didn't matter.

Involved

67 minutes: Chelsea raced out of the corner, and Jackson was in the middle circle when Van de Ven ran up behind him and tackled him. This is the first yellow card of the night.

66 minutes: Johnson kicks the ball to Gilchrist this time, and it goes beyond a corner kick for Spurs.

Involved

64 minutes: Johnson is now on the left so he has a new full-back to kick the ball to. Son in the middle, Kulusevski on the right.

Involved

63 minutes: It was probably Tottenham's best two minutes of the game, but they couldn't find a way to break down Chelsea's backline and it ended with a long-range shot that went just wide. Thus, a triple change: Richarlison, Bissouma and Sarr out; Come on Bentancur, Madison and Hojbjerg.

Involved

60 minutes: Madueke runs into the penalty area, but tries to pass to Palmer when he was supposed to shoot the ball into the roof of the net.

Involved

58 minutes: The ball was played directly to Johnson. Richarlison is nothing special in the middle. Johnson kicks the ball at Cucurella. Pedro Porro literally has his head in his hands.

Involved

56 minutes: Johnson is putting on a naive and frustrating display on Spurs' right. He can run and kick, and if anyone stands in his way he will bump into them, or kick the ball at them.

48 minutes: Tottenham win a corner. Cucurella comes down holding his face (he was pushed a little by Van de Ven, but nothing happened to his face). Free kick for Chelsea.

Involved

47 minutes: Spurs on the front foot. Petrovic made a full leap to clear a cross from the right flank. “Is there any way for Tottenham to start every game 1-0 down?” asks Phil Moseley. “Basically (a) it's inevitable anyway, and (b) they don't wake up until they wake up. I think Ange will be fine with this, just as he is good at conceding from set-pieces.

Involved

46 minutes: Beep! Tottenham starts the second half.

The players are back outside. It doesn't appear that any of the managers made any changes in a timely manner.

Listen half the time: Yes, it's Angry Angerson. Suddenly you see him as he is.

Skye talks about 'angry rage' Saying he was absolutely glowing at points in the first half. The problem is that even when he's angry he seems so cheerful:

Involved

41 minutes: Modric cuts the ball in again, and fires high again. He had a good run, but he had a few bad shots.
