Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was kept busy to prevent Chelsea adding to its score until Antonio Rudiger fired in from distance in stoppage time.
Chelsea has 13 points, having scored 12 goals and conceded once like Liverpool, which beat Crystal Palace 3-0 on Saturday. Also setting the pace but behind Chelsea and Liverpool on goal difference is Manchester United.
The match at Tottenham’s stadium was preceded by a minute’s applause to remember Jimmy Greaves, a former striker for the north London club and Chelsea, who died Sunday at the age of 81.
