Willian scored a sublime curling effort which found the far bottom corner in the 12th minute and right before the interval, he ensured that converted the penalty resulting from Paulo Gazzaniga’s blatant foul on Marcos Alonso.
In the second half, Spurs found themselves down to 10 men at the hour mark after Heung-min Son’s stamp on Antonio Rudiger’s ribs and the man advantage saw the Blues comfortably play through the entire game.
The defensive display was top-notch on the day for the Blues as they restricted Spurs to one effort on target but Willian was likewise influential in the attack and had one of his best games in the Chelsea FC shirt.
