Oliver Skipp, Harry Kane keep Tottenham in hunt for top-four finish | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Second half goals from Oliver Skipp and Harry Kane helped Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League clash in North London on Sunday.
The loss extended Blues’ torrid run under Graham Potter. Chelsea have only two wins in their last 15 games across all competitions.
Suprs sit fourth on the table while Chelsea find themselves at 10th position.
Seconds after the break, Skipp picked up a clearance by Chelsea’s British record signing Enzo Fernandez and fired in from more than 20 yards, his shot going in off the bar after Kepa Arrizabalaga could not get enough of a hand on it.
Kane secured the three points for Spurs when he pounced at the far post after a corner by Son Heung-min was flicked on by Eric Dier in the 82nd minute.
Chelsea, who failed to score for fourth time in five league games despite spending around 300 million pounds ($358 million)on players in January alone, failed to create any clear-cut chances to get themselves back into the game.
The win – the first for the hosts in nine league games against Chelsea – kept Spurs fourth in the table, four points ahead of fifth-placed Newcastle United who have played two games less.
