Two-goal hero Dane Scarlett had the Chelsea commentators seething at his sh*thousery

Tottenham sure do love a win over Chelsea. The North London outfit shares a geographical rivalry with Arsenal, but are also known for having a grudge against the West London club.

From a fair few FA Cup semi-final ties at Wembley in recent years to the notorious battle of the Bridge which ended with Leicester winning the Premier League in 2016, to Spurs finally winning their first match at Stamford Bridge after 28 years in 2018 – the two clubs have got a lot of history with each other.

The rivalry is not any weaker when the youth ranks of the two sides clash against each other in the lower age groups of the top division, as it proved when the development squads of Chelsea and Tottenham met in the U-18 division of the Premier League.

Tottenham routed Chelsea 6-1 in the match held at Chelsea’s Cobham training facility, but the comprehensive margin of victory was not the most satisfying positive for the Spurs faithful.

Tottenham fans loved how Dane Scarlett riled up the Chelsea TV commentary team who were covering the game when he frustrated Alfie Gilchrist while being 5-1 up at the moment. Scarlett dragged back Gilchrist in a very cynical manner, then stood in front of the ball when the foul was given – and capped it off by kicking the ball away in the end.

The antics were deemed to be disrespectful and angered the Chelsea TV commentators to the extreme, and the clip (watch it below) of the commentators angrily reacting to Scarlett has entertained a lot of the Spurs faithful on Twitter.

Tottenham fans would kill for their big boys in the Premier League to try and reduce the gap between them and their city rivals, but it must be nice to know that the kids are doing alright.
