Tottenham overthrow Bournemouth, Chelsea fall heavily at Brighton in the Premier League

Tottenham will play their future in the Champions League on Tuesday at the Stade Vélodrome. In the meantime, this Saturday afternoon, as part of the 14th day of the Premier League, the Spurs experienced a big scare in Bournemouth. Antonio Conte’s men snatched a difficult victory at Vitality Stadium (3-2), where they were trailing 0-2 due to a double from Kieffer Moore, who perfectly took over crosses from Marcus Tavernier (1 -0, 22nd) and Adam Smith (2-0, 49th).

After having dominated for a long time without managing to be dangerous, with the exception of a header against his camp from Cherries defender Marcos Senesi who ended up on the post (36th), Tottenham finally managed to score, Ryan Sessegnon taking advantage of a wonderful deep opening from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (2-1, 57th), before Ben Davies equalized with a header, on a corner taken by Ivan Perisic (2-2, 73rd), who had replaced Emerson Royal ten minutes earlier. The deliverance for the Spurs came on a new corner, badly cleared by Bournemouth, which allowed Rodrigo Bentancur to score with a shot under the bar (2-3, 90th + 2), while the Uruguayan was also entered during the second period (58th).

Thanks to this success, which comes after two defeats in the Championship, Tottenham consolidates its third place in the Premier League, ahead of Newcastle, which, at the same time, beat Aston Villa (4-0) at home thanks in particular to a double and a decisive pass from Callum Wilson and a new splendid achievement from the untenable Miguel Almiron (4-0, 67th). the Magpies are now three points ahead of Chelsea (fifth), who fell heavily at Brighton (1-4), due in particular to individual errors made by London defenders. Thus, the splendid opener of Leandro Trossard, who dribbled past Kepa Arrizabalaga before scoring from the left, came after Thiago Silva lost the ball (1-0, 5th).

Chelsea weighed down by individual errors

Then, the Blues conceded two own goals, signed by the unfortunate Ruben Loftus-Cheek (2-0, 14th) and Trevoh Chalobah (3-0, 42nd), before saving the honor via Kai Havertz, who took over from the head a cross from Conor Gallagher (3-1, 48th). But Brighton closed the mark through Pascal Gross, who closely beat Edouard Mendy (4-1, 92nd), the latter having replaced the injured Arrizabalaga at halftime. Finally, this Saturday afternoon, Brentford conceded a draw at home against Wolverhampton (1-1), while Crystal Palace won at Selhurst Park against Southampton (1-0), on a goal from the French Odsonne Edouard (1-0, 38th).
