Tottenham had the unenviable task of trying to gain a positive result at Stamford Bridge but despite a less-than-shocking 3-0 loss to Chelsea, their defending was particularly woeful.
With both Kyle Naughton and Eric Dier available to Mauricio Pochettino, the Hotspur manager elected to go with Vlad Chiriches at right back. While the Romanian is normally used to a center back role, he did a good enough job over the weekend in Spurs defeat of Everton that Pochettino decided to give him another shot. The move backfired as Chelsea exploited his side of the pitch and once the scoring was opened, it was clear the defense selected was never going t do well in such a difficult matchup. Even Hugo Lloris, normally world class week after week, committed a poor clearance that led directly to Chelsea's second goal. Spurs continue to spin their mid-table wheels as they look for the spark that elevates them to a top side in the league. Dec 3 - 5:02 PM
