Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham LIVE SCORE: Reece James fires Blues back ahead after defensive shambles – Premier League latest


TOTTENHAM’S dreadful record at Stamford Bridge looks set to continue.

Kalidou Koulibaly volleyed the Blues in front in a first half which the Blues dominated.

But Jorginho sloppily gave the ball away in his own penalty area, allowing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to coolly fire the ball into the bottom corner.

However, Reece James looks set to have the final word after being left in acres of space to put the Blues back ahead.
