Tottenham then came back into the match in the 50th minute when Llorente scored after benefiting from a superb cross from Rose.

The match was then forced into penalties where Moura and Dier missed their kicks for Tottenham before David Luiz netted the winner for Chelsea to win 4-2.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Maurizio Sarri was warned by Chelsea chiefs to finish the Premier League club among the top four clubs at the end of the season or face being kicked out at Stamford Bridge.

This comes after the Blues hierarchy allowed the signing of Argentine football star Gonzalo Higuain which now puts pressure on Maurizio Sarri to deliver.

And the former Napoli coach has been urged by owner Roman Abramovich to make sure the Blues qualify for next season's Champions League by finishing among the top four and also win titles for the investment.
