Chelsea's lead at the top of England Premier League standing will be facing difficult challenge this Saturday, March 8 as they face up against fellow London side, Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge stadium. Playing in front of their home crowd, The Blues won't be keen on picking up any other result aside from three points as any different result could really jeopardize their shot in keeping that top seat in tack.
Spurs themselves are also targeting for something positive from their travel since they are still on course for that fourth place battle, that continue to get tougher with several teams are still competing for it. Although snatching all three points might not be an easy task for Spurs, but Sherwood's men won't give things up easily as finishing in the top four have been their main target in the last couple of seasons now.
The Blues keeping their table topping position in tack as they comfortably demolished their London rival, Tottenham Hotspur on that Saturday big match fixture. It was another difficult first 45 minutes for Jose Mourinho's men as they can't seem to get things going in that period as Spurs' solid display forced them to settle for a 0-0 result as they go into half time break. In the second period, Chelsea finally got things going with Samuel Eto'o breaking the dead lock on 56 minutes. Eden Hazard doubling the home team's lead from the penalty spot on 60 minutes.
The tie were far from over though as Chelsea adding two more goals during that second half through Demba Ba's brace on 88 and 89 minutes. Obviously, the red card picked up by Younes Kaboul on 59 minutes, affected Spurs' resistance on that tie as they can't keep up with their opponent's attacking display, especially having to chase that early second half strike from Eto'o.
