Deeply into the first half stoppage time Tottenham scored their third from the penalty spot. Kane was fouled inside the box and Andros Townsend took the shot to increase the lead.

In the second half Harry Kane once again shows his quality and speed after he dribbled past his defender in 53rd minute and scored his second goal in this match. Tottenham had 4 - 1 lead at that moment and Mourinho's team was facing real catastrophe.

Later on Hazard scored for Chelsea but all hopes for the Blues were crushed by Chadli ten minutes before the final whistle when he scored fifth for the Spurs. Final score of the match was set by John Terry which was his third goal in last 3 games.
