  • Description

    Chelsea scored a one-nil win over Tottenham Hotspure in London on Saturday (21 October) to move into third place in the First Division of the English Football League.

    The only goal came when a wide-shot by Chelsea forward John Hollins bounced off a Spurs defender into the net in the 25th minute.

    Spurs defence looked shaky early in the game and by a combination of errors Spurs let Chelsea get a grip on the game.

    In the second half, Spurs moved onto the attack but could not break through the compact Chelsea defence.

    A crowd of 45,000 watched the match.

    SYNOPSIS: English First Division football, and Chelsea meets another London side, Tottenham Hotspurs. Chelsea, playing from right to left, holds, third place in the League points table.

    Chelsea took a grip on the game from the beginning with superior mid-field play and had Spurs on the defensive.

    But in this move, Spurs star Martin Chivers made a solo run, beat Webb, and almost sent the ball home.

    The only goal came in the twenty-fifth minute when Chelsea attacked and John Hollins scored when his kick bounced off Spurs defender Phil Beal into the net.

    The score again, Chelsea one, Tottenham Hotspurs nil.
