A goal and a big part in the second, Olivier Giroud has had a great game today and surely played himself firmly into contention for the rest of the season.
It is Chelsea, however, who keep up the hunt for more goals with Stamford Bridge now in full voice. Ross Barkley's fierce drive is pushed over by Hugo Lloris.
It is a wonderful team move as Olivier Giroud heads across to Mason Mount, who squares across the edge of the box to Ross Barkley. The midfielder quickly finds Marcos Alonso and the full-back drives a sweet strike into the far corner.

Reece James drives forward before sweeping a shot wide as Chelsea push for a second in the early stages of the second half.
Back under way at Stamford Bridge.
No changes for either side.

- SMS Message: Same old story for Chelsea, bags of possession, territory and attempts but only one goal and while it's 1-0 the game is far from over. from Hal, ManchesterSMS Message: So called Spurs 'fans'...we don't need you at our club. All you self haters go and support Woolwich. Give José a chance!!! from Joe Federico
Despite no player making fewer successful passes in the first half than Spurs' Giovani Lo Celso (six), the Argentine attempted at least twice as many passes/crosses into the box (six) than any other player.
Scott: I still don't get why Levy would rather get a new manager, rather than backing the amazing one we had. Still backing Jose, but Levy has screwed up. New stadium only reason some fans don't criticise him.
Dave Payn: I'm no fan of Mourinho but I do have some sympathy. Spurs' lack of investment which caused Poch to speak out is undermining them. Levy's to blame, in my book.

The Royal Dyche, just down the road from Turf Moor, is looking well. Home fans only, though, so a neutral like myself can't even grab half a coke and a packet of cheese and onion.
Manager Sean has received this recognition for a very good reason. Every year he defies the odds to keep the Clarets not only up, but with room to spare.
And Man City's Champions League ban (appeal pending) has opened the door to another possible European qualification. Win today and they'll have taken 13 points from the last available 15. They'd lost four in a row prior to that run. Whatever you say about Burnley, they're not dull.
When I got to the office I said, 'bet it's windy at Turf Moor today.'
Look at this! Get a fiver on a keeper to score...

Chelsea have been comfortably the better side so far - with Spurs passive once more - although Frank Lampard would have liked more opportunities created from the possession they have had.

There's the whistle for half time and it is advantage Chelsea.

That Tanganga chance was the first time Tottenham played a forward ball. What that does is it stretches Chelsea and the players have to move on. It's very easy for Chelsea to press Tottenham because theyre not stretching the play and Chelsea are able to just lock on to them. If Tottenham do make those runs they could get a bit of joy.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 39 home games in all competitions when scoring first (W31 D8) - their last such defeat came to Spurs in the Premier League in April 2018 (1-3).
Jose Mourinho scribbles down some notes as half-time approaches. He must be thinking to change things up for the second half because the current tactic isn't really working.
- SMS Message: Spurs have a complete lack of positive mentality since Pochettino left, we are a disappointing team to watch at the moment with nothing to make the fans happy. from Wayne SumnerSMS Message: Am I the only one to think that Harry Winks is overrated. Spurs will not win anything with him in the side. He would not get in the team of any of the other top 6 sides. from Mike from Merthyr TydfilSMS Message: Want to know what's wrong with Spurs. Their CM. They can't defend. They're not creative. And they don't run too much. Other than that they're ok. from Jonn, Kenilworth.
An interesting trio watching on today - Gianluca Vialli, Roberto Mancini and.. Bobby Davro!
Ross Barkley races on to Olivier Giroud's good ball over the top but the Chelsea midfielder can't beat Davinson Sanchez. Barkley then flashes a shot into the side netting.

Uh oh! Willy Caballero gets away with this one as he is caught way out of position as he tries to beat Japhet Tanganga to the ball. Tanganga knocks the ball past Cabellero but it just runs out of play.
