Two tactics, 2-0 both times


Dele Alli buried Chelsea last time when we targeted the left-hand side channel between Victor Moses at right-back and César Azpilicueta at right centre-back. Moses is not a natural defender and Spaniard Azpilicueta is only 1.78m (5ft 10in).

The opening graphic above shows our ball movement for the first goal where we dragged players away from Christian Eriksen to give him the chance to cross for Alli to nod home. The second goal was incredibly similar, another Eriksen cross from a similar position to Alli for him to head home again.

Key for both graphics
No. 2 Kyle Walker
No. 3 Danny Rose
No. 4 Toby Alderweireld
No. 5 Jan Vertonghen
No. 10 Harry Kane
No. 12 Victor Wanyama
No. 15 Eric Dier
No. 19 Mousa Dembele
No. 20 Dele Alli
No. 23 Christian Eriksen

In scoring the two goals everyone was involved. We then controlled the game to come out easy winners in the end with Dele Alli being named Man of the Match.

Jose Mourinho simply stopped the supply line to Costa, man marking Hazard and Pedro to which Chelsea had no answers. His speedy forwards, one a winger, then caused the high-line Chelsea defence a lot of problems.

Two tactics that worked against the league leaders, no reason why they won't work again.
