Chelsea too good for Spurs

Didier Drogba inspired Chelsea to a win over Tottenham to maintain the Blues' six-point lead at the top of the table.
Tottenham missed two good chances early on - Harry Kane hitting the bar then dragging a shot wide - and Chelsea went ahead when Eden Hazard finished sweetly following a one-two with Drogba.
The striker, who replaced the suspended Diego Costa, then netted with a low shot following a Hugo Lloris mistake.
Substitute Loic Remy completed the win with a smart finish from 12 yards.
There was plenty to admire about Chelsea, who once again turned on the style for 10 first-half minutes to blow away their second-best opponents.
Tottenham, who are still without a win at Stamford Bridge since 1990, could not deal with the sublime skill of Hazard, the power and physicality of Drogba and the rampaging runs down the right from full-back Branislav Ivanovic.
Perhaps more pertinently, though, Jose Mourinho's men did it all without leading scorer Costa and, in the second half, minus Gary Cahill who suffered a head injury during an early clash with Jan Vertonghen.
But it might have been so different if Tottenham had taken their early chances.
Vertonghen had already headed over the bar when Kane rattled the woodwork with a header from Aaron Lennon's right-wing cross.
Moments later, the forward picked up on Cahill's mistake, drove forward into the box but took one touch too many and flashed his angled shot across the face of goal.
