Tottenham’s season took a huge blow on Monday night against Chelsea, not only did Spurs lose to their London rivals, but Ange Postecoglou saw James Maddison and Micky van de Ven pick up injuries.
It was a crazy game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and it will go down as one of the best in the history of the Premier League.
Dejan Kulusevski gave Spurs the lead within six minutes before Cristian Romero was sent off and Cole Palmer converted a penalty. Destiny Udogie got sent off in the second 45 minutes and that led to Nicolas Jackson scoring a hat-trick to give Mauricio Pochetino’s men a 4-1 win.
In the midst of all this, Tottenham received a big blow as Maddison and Van de Ven picked up injuries.
