London, England (SportsNetwork.com) -
Chelsea widened its margin atop the Premiership table to seven points on Saturday after a 4-0 victory over 10-man Tottenham-Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.
Coming off a superb second-half performance against Fulham last week which included a hat trick from Andre Schurrle, the Blues were a bit sluggish out of the gate and failed to produce many scoring chances in a scoreless first half.
But the match turned sharply in Chelsea's favor in a span of four minutes as a poor back pass from Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen in the 56th minute was easily cut out by Samuel Eto'o, who slid it past Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Just three minutes later things continued to unravel for Spurs when Eto'o worked his way into the penalty area and was taken down by Spurs defender Younes Kaboul, who was shown a straight red card, as referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot.
