“This is the best day of my life!”
“Spurs watched how Newcastle attacked us and thought they would try it out on Chelsea. It was working out with VAR not sending people off but they got a bit carried away with the MMA.”
“Dear Spurs, thanks for the quick pick me up. You always come through for us. We knew we could count on you.”
“Spurs have Villa, Newcastle, Man City in their next four without first choice CBs. They’ll be 5th by Xmas.”
“Chelsea looked shaky at the back even against nine men. Spurs really threw this one away.”
