Comments:

League position: 7th Tottenham Hotspur remained without a win in their last 11 games in the Premier League since November 2018 against the other big six opponents (lost eight). This was the first time that José Mourinho had lost a home game in all competitions against a team that he had previously managed (previously won 12 and drawn one). SON Heung-min was sent-off for violent conduct following a VAR review. He became the second player to be shown three straight red cards in the Premier League in a year; also Dion Dublin of Coventry City in 1997.

Comments:

League position: 4th In his 215th appearance in the competition, Willian had now scored two or more goals in a game in the Premier League for the second time; also two versus Stoke City on 31 December 2016. The Blues avoided losing three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since November 2015 (José Mourinho's penultimate month in charge). They kept a clean sheet for the second time in their last 13 games in all competitions. Initially given as a free-kick to Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea's penalty in added time at the end of the first-half was awarded following a VAR review. SON Heung-min became the first opponent to be sent-off in a game in the Premier League against the Blues since Leicester City's Ben Chilwell on 13 January 2018.
