Ziyech & Silva keep up the Blues’ lackluster title dreams with a crucial win hitting Spurs’ hopes of a top-four finish

ANTONIO CONTE suffered even more in his return to Chelsea when Tottenham lost 0-2.

After losing to his former club in the Carabao Cup semi-final earlier this month, this time his side’s four top hopes took a big hit.

It was Conte’s first Premier League defeat to Spurs and things could have been very different but with a controversial decision in the first half.

Harry Kane appeared to have given the visitors the lead at Stamford Bridge just before the break.

Just eight minutes later, they were two down when Silva connected with a piece to double the advantage.

And within two minutes of the second half, Spurs found themselves behind thanks to a rocket from Hakim Ziyech.

But the star’s goal was disqualified after a VAR check for a slight foul on Thiago Silva.

And despite a lot of bluster and harshness from Spurs, they couldn’t afford to break the Blues’ tough backline.
