Ashley Cole reacts to Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Twitter

The Chelsea legend has his say on the Premier League leaders' 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur

Ashley Cole highlighted Danny Rose’s absence as a contributing factor to Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men took the lead courtesy of Christian Eriksen’s superb 11th-minute strike which silenced Stamford Bridge after Chelsea’s recent six-game winning run.

However, the hosts managed to level the London derby in the 45th minute thanks to Pedro Rodriguez’s curled finish which beat Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Antonio Conte’s side were ahead in the 51st minute after Victor Moses scored his third goal of the 2016-17 campaign despite despite the efforts of Lloris and Jan Vertonghen on the goal-line.

Former Chelsea defender Cole tweeted throughout the London derby, singling out Rose’s absence as a key factor after Moses’ dominant performance.

Chelsea will make the long journey to take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side in their next Premier League game at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham, on other hand, will entertain Swansea City in their next top-flight fixture at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
