Tottenham 0-2 Chelsea. Willian double & Son’s red send Mourinho’s side 6 pts behind top 4
Tottenham fans were accused of racially abusing Antonio Rudiger during their Premier League clash with London rivals Chelsea on Sunday.
Television footage showed Rudiger mimicking a racist gesture as he made referee Anthony Taylor aware of the alleged incident.
Then, the Premier League official went over to the touchline to speak to his fourth official during a break in play.
The Tottenham stadium announcer then released a warning to fans, saying: “Racist behaviour from spectators is interfering with the game.”
Jose Mourinho suffered a first home defeat as Tottenham head coach at the hands of Chelsea, led by Frank Lampard and inspired by Willian.

Willian (45’+4′ PEN)
Willian and Frank Lampard got the better of their former manager Jose Mourinho as Chelsea seemingly set their Premier League campaign back on track with a 2-0 win at Tottenham in an ill-tempered London derby.
Chelsea’s impressive early season form under head coach Lampard had tailed away in the time Mourinho reinvigorated Spurs, having succeeded the struggling Mauricio Pochettino last month.
Indeed, Tottenham would have leapfrogged the Blues into fourth with victory, yet Willian scored twice before half-time – the second from the penalty spot after a remarkable Paulo Gazzaniga error.
Son Heung-min was sent off for kicking out at Antonio Rudiger with 28 minutes left, and Lampard’s men cruised to the finish at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
