Chelsea have issued a cheeky response to Gary Lineker following the Match of the Day host’s praise for their performance in the win against Tottenham on Sunday.

The Blues rose to the top of the Premier League table after a thumping 3-0 success at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Goals from Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger earned the Blues victory in north London but only after a thoroughly underwhelming performance during a quiet first-half.

The game changed exactly when Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel introduced the Frenchman however, leaving Blues fans utterly thrilled and enamoured.

Amongst those left impressed with the reigning European champions’ performances was Gary Lineker who took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Chelsea’s display against his former side.

He simply wrote: “Chelsea are bloody good.”

Then, Chelsea’s official account elected to join in as they teasingly replied “*blushes*” in response to Lineker’s huge compliment.

Of course, the victory against Spurs will not only be satisfying along with the local bragging rights, but the three points also lift Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table.

They are just ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on alphabetical order although that will not dampen Chelsea’s fans spirits, with the Blues having not topped the table following a completed matchweek in over three years since a 4-1 win against Crystal Palace back in September 2018.

The Blues will hope to continue their run at the top of the table and prove Lineker right once more as they face reigning champions Manchester City next weekend.

Before that however, they are set to tackle Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.
