This week started with the EFL round of matches, which would see teams secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Chelsea took on Tottenham Hotspur as Mourinho faced his former player in Frank Lampard and former team. A match that saw wasted opportunities and sub-par showings eventually ended in a 1-all draw.

Timo Werner, who eventually got the first goal of his Chelsea career after going through many matches without hitting the back of the net, had his strike canceled out by Erik Lamela late in the second half.

spurs-vs-chelsea-eric dier go to washroom

There was a comical aspect to the game as Eric Dier ran off the field into the dressing room to ease himself during the game. Sadly, Chelsea couldn’t even capitalize on that.

What summed up Chelsea’s game was the fact that with 3 minutes of stoppage time left and the ball in their possession, they didn’t attack Spurs. They just passed the ball around, as if waiting for the ball to reach the feet of their forwards on its own.

The draw meant a straightway penalty shootout. A penalty shootout which won itself was odd, as the Spurs players all placed their penalties at one place and not once did debutant goalkeeper Mendy dive in that direction. For Chelsea’s new goalkeeper, this was not a display he would be proud of at all. He just kept going the other way.

Ultimately, Spurs came out on top after Mason Mount blasted the last penalty away from the goal to hand Mourinho his first win against Lampard in 4 outings.

As for Chelsea, that game means they have only won 2 games this season out of possibly 5, with a dramatic 3 – 3 draw with West Brom and losing to Liverpool at home and now this defeat. Things don’t look and many they would with all the signings they have made.

This weekend they face Crystal Palace, who have been in excellent form, bar their defeat to an in-form Everton side who have won all their matches so far.
