‘Two Tottenham players should’ve been sent off vs Chelsea’

Tottenham finally win at Chelsea

The morning after Tottenham’s first win at Stamford Bridge in 28 years, some Chelsea fans are angry.

Dele Alli was the match-winner for Spurs with a second half double.

Alvaro Morata opened for the the hosts, while Christian Eriksen levelled on the stroke of halftime with a stunning shot from distance.

Should Erik Lamela have been sent off?

Some Chelsea fans believe that Tottenham could have been reduced to nine men on Sunday.

Argentine midfielder Erik Lamela is known for being a bit of a dirty footballer. Indeed, much of the pre-game Lamela chat focused on when he previously stamped on Cesc Fabregas’s hand.

On Sunday Lamela was involved in two controversial incidents.

Andreas Christensen was left in a crumpled heap in the first half when Lamela elbowed the Chelsea defender in the face.

Was it intentional? Lamela backed into the Chelsea centre-half as he challenged for a high ball. But just before the contact happened, Lamela appeared to have a cheeky look in Christensen’s direction.

For the record, Lamela wasn’t even booked.

Perhaps the more offensive foul from Lamela came against Fabregas.

As the opponents challenged for the ball in the middle of the pitch, Lamela ended up putting his studs into Cesc’s ankle.

Again the referee didn’t even book the South American while Chelsea fans were calling for his dismissal.

Jan Vertonghen vs Eden Hazard

The other Tottenham player who could have been sent off on Sunday was defender Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen courted plenty of ire after he took out Eden Hazard while a slide tackle into his calf.

The Belgian defender wasn’t even booked.
