The first leg of the encounter was one of the most thrilling league games the league has seen this year, with the Blues edging it 4-1 on Mauricio Pochettino's return to his former club.

Sports Brief looks at five highlights from the first leg at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Chelsea vs Tottenham highlights

1. Nicolas Jackson's hat-trick

Per Chelsea.com, Jackson became the second player to score a hat trick for Chelsea away at Tottenham after Tore Andre Flo, who bagged a treble in 1997 even before the Senegalese forward was born. He could have had more with disallowed goals and missed chances.

2. Five disallowed goals

The game finished with five goals on the scoreboard, and the same number was disallowed. Son Heung-min, Eric Dier, Raheem Sterling, Moisés Caicedo, and hat trick hero Jackson each had a goal disallowed due to offsides and infringements.

3. Two Spurs red card

Postecoglou's men were praised for their bravery in keeping a high line despite having two players sent off. Cristian Romero was sent off for a bad foul on his compatriot Enzo Fernandez, while Destiny Udogie, who could have been sent off earlier, was shown a second yellow for a foul on Sterling.

4. Two injuries for Tottenham

Spurs were damaged behind the scoreline against their rivals. Micky Van de Ven and James Maddison walked out of the match injured, and both needed significant time on the sidelines to recover.

5. Pochettino celebrates against Tottenham

Per Opta, Pochettino became the fourth manager to beat Tottenham after previously managing them in the league. The Argentine manager celebrated Jackson's third goal to wrap up the win.

Jackson hits Ronaldo's celebration

Sports Brief also reported on Jackson doing Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Siuuu' after scoring his third goal in the demolition of a nine-man Tottenham Hotspur to loud cheers from the away end.

The 22-year-old was put through on goal from a Cole Palmer ball over the top. He used Mykhailo Mudryk as a decoy to fake out goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario before slotting into the net.
