Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Both sides enjoy a break in their schedules next week as the top flight pauses. Chelsea are next in action against Plymouth Argyle at home in the fourth round of the FA Cup on 5 February. Tottenham are in action on the same day against Brighton and Hove Albion on home soil.
Chelsea end a run of four matches without a win in the Premier League after defeating Tottenham 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. The home side took the lead in the early stages of the second half through a stunner from Hakim Ziyech before Thiago Silva added a second with a glancing header from Mason Mount's free-kick. Spurs will feel aggrieved after Harry Kane saw a first-half strike controversially ruled out for a foul on Thiago Silva. However, Antonio Conte's men were lacklustre in the second period and as a result his unbeaten run in the league is halted by his former team.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: CHELSEA 2-0 TOTTENHAM
90' + 5' Rudiger tries to run out the clock in the right corner, but fouls Davies in the process.
90' + 2' Rudiger stands firm at the back to make a crucial interception to prevent Hojbjerg from releasing Moura in the final third.
Saúl
H. Ziyech
90' + 1' Ziyech made the decisive breakthrough for the Blues with a fine strike. The winger is replaced by Saul.
90' There will be five minutes of added time.
90' Ziyech is down for the home side and appears to be struggling with cramp. He may have to be withdrawn here.
Bryan Gil
H. Winks
89' Gil replaces Winks for the closing stages of the contest.
Marcos Alonso
C. Hudson-Odoi
87' Alonso replaces Hudson-Odoi at the back to shore up the Chelsea defence.
86' SAVE! Kane rises to attack a corner from Winks on the right flank and he directs his effort towards the right corner. Kepa makes a reaction stop, but appears to hurt himself in the process.
86' Bergwijn runs at the Chelsea defence and tries to slide a throughball towards the run of Kane, forcing Rudiger to clear behind.
84' CHANCE! Kane feeds a throughball into the path of Bergwijn on the edge of the Chelsea box, but the forward scuffs his first-time effort and it trickles through to Kepa.
81' There's no way through for Spurs in the final third. Chelsea have been excellent at the back in the second half, quelling the threat of Kane.
78' Thiago Silva (37y 123d) is the oldest player to score in the Premier League since February 2013, when 39-year-old Ryan Giggs netted against Queens Park Rangers for Manchester United.
76' Mount bursts into the right-inside channel and tries to fire at goal from a tight angle, but Lloris gets out to make a block with his body.
75' Chelsea are attempting to control the game to work their way towards the three points. Game management is required from the Blues, especially after Spurs; antics during the week.
N. Kanté
Jorginho
73' Jorginho is withdrawn after a quiet performance. Kante replaces the Italy international in the middle of the park.
72' Hojbjerg almost threads the needle to release Doherty in the right-inside channel, but the throughball just evades the wing-back on the charge.
69' Sarr makes a vital block at the back to stop a strike from Doherty after he was teed up by Skipp in the right-inside channel.
69' SAVE! Lukaku rolls past a challenge from Sanchez on the edge of the Tottenham box and rifles a strike at goal from the left-inside channel, but Lloris beats his effort away.
67' Lloris commits himself at the back to attempt to clear a cross-field pass from Azpilicueta away from Hudson-Odoi and he just does enough, although Doherty is required to mop up the danger.
65' Ziyech attempts a speculative on his right foot rather than his left, but he floats a tame strike into the hands of Lloris.
62' Ziyech whips a dangerous cross into the box from the right flank that Lukaku tries to attack, but Kane is there to divert it over his own bar.
61' Ziyech runs at Davies down the right flank and wins a free-kick as he draws a foul. Chelsea have another chance to send a dangerous ball into the box.
59' Mount has registered his 20th assist for Chelsea since the start of the 2019-20 campaign, the most of any player at the club in this period across all competitions.
58' CHANCE! Kane bursts down the left flank and digs out a cross. It is deflected back to Skipp who nods an offload to Bergwijn, who tries to shoot on the turn, but his effort is saved comfortably by Kepa.
O. Skipp
J. Tanganga
56' Tanganga is replaced after a difficult game and is replaced by Skipp. Spurs move to three at the back.
Lucas Moura
R. Sessegnon
56' Moura replaces Sessegnon for the visitors in the final third. Sessegnon could have had an assist on another day.
M. Mount
Assist
55' Mount swings a cross into the box from the left flank that Thiago Silva rises and guides into the back of the net with a precise header.
Thiago Silva
Goal
55' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! THIAGO SILVA MAKES IT TWO!!!!!! 2-0 CHELSEA!!!!! The Brazil international latches onto a sublime cross from Mount and glances his header away from Lloris into the bottom-right corner. Dier brings down Hudson-Odoi on the left flank, which bemuses the Tottenham players. Mount swings a perfect cross into the box for Thiago Silva to attack and he gets between two white shirts to direct his effort into the back of the net.
53' OVER! Mount and Hudson-Odoi combine in the final third, which sees the former launch a powerful left-footed strike that creeps just over the bar.
51' Chelsea have the lead and are looking comfortable on the ball. Spurs have to hold out amid the pressure at the start of the second half.
49' LLORIS DENIES ZIYECH! The winger almost has a second, but sees his effort saved by a fine stop from Lloris. Ziyech plays Azpillicueta down the right flank and he cuts a ball back to Mount. He shoots on the turn, only to be denied by Sanchez's block. Ziyech gathers the rebound and hammers a strike towards goal on the half-volley that Lloris has to palm away.
C. Hudson-Odoi
Assist
47' Hudson-Odoi bursts away from Tanganga before offloading to Ziyech. The winger does the rest with a sublime effort.
H. Ziyech
Goal
47' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! ZIYECH SCORES A STUNNER!!!!!! 1-0 CHELSEA!!!!!! The winger collects on the edge of the Spurs box and curls a precise effort away Lloris into the top-left corner. Hudson-Odoi starts the move with burst past Tanganga down the left flank and he surges away from the defender. Hudson-Odoi offloads to Ziyech, who takes a touch before curling a sublime effort into the back of the net. A super strike.
46' We're back under way at Stamford Bridge after a brief delay so one of the goal nets could be repaired.
Chelsea are enduring the same struggles as their last four Premier League matches in front of goal. Lukaku looks devoid of confidence in the final third, missing two decent openings. The Blues need the Belgian or someone else to step up to capitalise on the chances that are being created.
It's goalless at the break in the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea had a host of chances in the early stages, but were unable to get the breakthrough as Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson-Odoi failed to hit the target. Spurs will feel that they should be ahead after Harry Kane converted from close range, only for his effort to be controversially disallowed for a foul on Thiago Silva.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: CHELSEA 0-0 TOTTENHAM
45' + 2' Sessegnon hands Chelsea a free-kick in a useful position on the right flank after bringing down Azpilicueta. Ziyech takes the free-kick, but floats his delivery straight into the hands of Lloris.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
45' OVER! Chelsea win two corners in succession and Mount sends the second in from the right flank. Thiago Silva rises highest, but he sends his effort just over the bar.
44' BLOCK! Lukaku latches on to a throughball in space down the left flank. He breaks into the box and lines up a drive that Dier diverts behind.
43' Chelsea are incredulous as Tanganga survives pulling the shirt of Hudson-Odoi before Hojbjerg gets the decision from the referee after being fouled by Kovacic.
Jorginho
Yellow Card
42' Jorginho fouled Bergwijn in the build-up to Kane's disallowed goal and is booked after the fact.
41' DISALLOWED GOAL! Kane slots the ball home with composure after latching on to a cutback from Sessegnon. However, his celebrations are short lived as the referee blows for a nudge on Thiago Silva in the box. The contact from Kane was minimal, but the referee and VAR agree that it was enough to knock the defender off balance.
39' WIDE! Rudiger wins the ball at the back and continues his run up the field. He combines with Ziyech and bursts down the right flank. Rudiger sends a cross into the box that Lukaku steers behind under pressure from Sanchez.
38' CHANCE! Hojbjerg releases Sessegnon down the left flank and he surges into the box, only to drag the ball harmlessly wide of the post.
J. Tanganga
Yellow Card
37' Tanganga brings down Hudson-Odoi on the charge and goes into the book.
33' WIDE! Lukaku works the ball to Hudson-Odoi in the final third, who cuts inside to fire at goal on his right foot. It bends away from goal after Lukaku in the middle opts to leave it on its trajectory.
32' MISS! Chelsea play around the Tottenham press and Mount coasts into space down the right flank. He exchanges passes with Ziyech before sending a cutback towards Lukaku, but the forward misses his kick at goal.
29' Thiago Silva has to be careful as he catches Bergwijn from behind in the middle of the park. The contact was slight, but the Brazilian will be treading lightly now.
27' Kane tries to slide a throughball forward for the run of Bergwijn, but it evades the Dutchman and travels through to Kepa.
26' Mount makes another probing run down the right flank that Hojbjerg eventually halts with a fine sliding tackle. The England man has had space on the flank.
Thiago Silva
Yellow Card
24' Thiago Silva blocks off the run of Bergwijn racing upfield and goes into the book.
22' Spurs clear their lines from two crosses into the box from Ziyech before Mount sends Tanganga crashing into the advertising hoardings with a nudge. Fortunately the defender is okay.
21' Mount surges into the right-inside channel and clips a cross to the back post that Tanganga has to head behind at the back post.
19' Sarr goes down after being late on the ankle by Doherty, which is not punished on the field. VAR has a look at the incident, but deems that the referee made the correct call.
17' Bergwijn breaks on the counter for the visitors and coasts past two Chelsea players before being halted by a good sliding challenge from Kovacic.
14' STOP! Winks charges through the middle of the Chelsea midfield and reaches the edge of the box before firing at goal. He gets plenty of pace behind his strike, but Kepa gets down to make a solid stop.
12' SAVE! Ziyech twists and turns on the edge of the Tottenham box and he sends a curling strike towards goal. It seems a tame effort, but Lloris opts to punch it away rather than claim the ball.
11' Dier makes a positive charge forward to the edge of the Chelsea box. The Blues get men back to surround the Spurs defender before he fouls Thiago Silva attempting to regain possession.
9' OVER! Mount swings the resulting corner into the Tottenham box for Thiago Silva to attack, but he plants his header over the bar.
8' Ziyech collects in space on the edge of the Spurs box and tries to release Mount down the right flank, but Sessegnon gets back to sweep the ball behind.
6' Chelsea probe in the final third and Jorginho offloads to Ziyech in space. He lines up a drive on his left foot that is diverted behind for a corner by Davies.
4' WIDE! Ziyech angles a cross to the back post for the run of Hudson-Odoi in the left-inside channel, but the winger heads his effort narrowly wide of the left post.
1' CHANCE! Lukaku latches on to a precise cutback from Mount from the right flank and has space to fire at goal in the box. However, the forward scuffs his right-footed effort over the bar, a huge chance spurned.
1' We're under way at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham have won just one of their last 31 away league games against Chelsea (D10 L20), winning 3-1 in April 2018 with current boss Antonio Conte in charge of the Blues that day.
Spurs have made four changes to their side that beat Leicester late on in their last outing. Bergwijn gets the nod in the final third after his late heroics at the King Power Stadium, while Sessegnon is brought back into the side for his first league start of 2022. Dier returns to the Tottenham backline, while Doherty slots in at right-wing back. Moura, Skipp, Reguilon and Emerson all drop to the bench.
Chelsea have made two changes to their side that drew against Brighton last time out. Sarr comes into the fold to replace Alonso in the Chelsea backline, although Tuchel may have reverted to a back three with Hudson-Odoi and Azpilicueta on the flanks. Kovacic also comes into the side in place of Kante in the middle of the park. Both Alonso and Kante drop to the bench.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Sergio Reguilon, Bryan Gil, Emerson, Joe Rodon, Pierluigi Gollini, Lucas Moura, Oliver Skipp, Harvey White, Dane Scarlett.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Japhet Tanganga; Matt Doherty, Harry Winks, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ben Davies; Steven Bergwijn, Harry Kane, Ryan Sessegnon.
CHELSEA SUBS: Marcos Alonso, N'Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Marcus Bettinelli, Trevoh Chalobah, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley, Kai Havertz.
CHELSEA (3-4-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Malang Sarr; Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi; Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Romelu Lukaku.
Tottenham were well beaten by Chelsea in the EFL Cup over two legs, the one bright spot of 2022 for the Blues. However, Antonio Conte is unbeaten in the Premier League since taking his place in the Spurs' dugout. Tottenham highlighted their improvement under Conte with an incredible late comeback against Leicester, scoring twice after the 95th minute to snatch all three points at the King Power Stadium. Conte will be determined to keep up his run against his former club and maintain Spurs' surge for a top-four place.
Chelsea have endured a frustrating time of late in the Premier League, enduring a four-game winless run that has knocked them off the pace in the race for the crown. Thomas Tuchel's men were held last time out by Brighton and Hove Albion as Adam Webster cancelled out Hakim Ziyech's strike. The Blues might be looking over their shoulder after their slump with Tottenham among a number of teams that are closing in behind. Chelsea cannot afford another underwhelming performance that further stymies their momentum.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
