London: Samuel Eto'o set Chelsea on their way to a ruthless 4-0 victory over 10-man Tottenham that moved Jose Mourinho's side seven points clear at the top of the Premier League on Saturday.

Eto'o, who had been drafted into the starting line-up at the last minute after Fernando Torres was injured in the warm-up, capitalised on Jan Vertonghen's poor back pass to break the deadlock in the second half before drawing a foul from Younes Kaboul that allowed Eden Hazard to score from the penalty spot and earned the Spurs defender a red card.
