First Half Report
Good game in the first half of the encounter which saw Chelsea making things happen from kickoff to the end of 45 minutes.
Kai Havertz opened the goal scoring in the 5th minute thanks to Marcos Alonso who set up the German to make sure the Blues took an early lead 1-0 after an outstanding finishing.
Tottenham were second best as they couldn’t contain the pressure other than allowing their London neighbors to take an early advantage which wasn’t good for them as it carried on.
The first half carried on with both teams doing more than enough to see things change from how it looked, but nothing happen despite all the opportunities created.
An own-goal from Ben Davies increased the advantage for the home side to 2-0 after a brilliant display saw the Spurs defender forced to put the ball past his goalkeeper for the goal.
That was how the first half of the encounter played out with Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham as they both headed inside for the break after a good 45 minutes of football.
Second Half Report
The second half was too much tactical coming from both managers who knew they had more job to do regardless of how the scoreline looked for them.
Chelsea were forced into a change which saw Kai Havertz removed due to an injury he sustained which saw Timo Werner making his return into the pitch as a replacement.
Tottenham still were fighting for something to build on in the encounter which was fast slipping away from them after a poor first half display which sold them out badly.
Nothing was happening as they continued to go head to head against each other with just a few minutes left to be played at Stamford Bridge.
The match came to an end with Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham, which means the Blues go into the second leg of the encounter knowing they have all the advantage they need.
