LONDON -- Chelsea scored four goals in the second half to thrash 10-man Tottenham 4-0 and provisionally move seven points clear in the Premier League on Saturday. A.Q. Shipley Jersey . Jose Mourinhos side was unconvincing before halftime but Samuel Etoo sparked a stunning revival by taking advantage of Jan Vertonghens slip and ill-judged back pass to nip in and score in the 56th minute. Etoo was then felled by Younes Kaboul in the area, earning the defender a straight red card, and Eden Hazard converted the 60th-minute penalty. Substitute Demba Ba completed a crushing win with two late goals in the space of 75 seconds. Chelsea has played a game more than second-placed Liverpool and third-placed Arsenal, who are both seven points adrift and not in league action this weekend. Fourth-placed Manchester City is nine points behind with three games in hand. This was meant to be one of Chelseas toughest matches of its run-in and a win -- coming despite a poor first half -- can only strengthen belief inside Stamford Bridge that the title could be theirs in Mourinhos first season back in charge. Chelsea has Arsenal at home and Liverpool away in its final nine matches; otherwise the schedule looks straightforward. And although City is in striking distance, points on the board are what matter at this stage. Chelsea has had the knack this campaign of winning without necessarily playing well and this was another case in point, taking its unbeaten run in the league to 14 games in the process. Spurs had drawn or lost on their previous 26 visits to Stamford Bridge, dating back to February 1990 when Gary Lineker scored the winning goal, but they looked in good shape to end that dreadful record in a first half that they edged. Hazard may have missed an open goal in the fifth minute after rounding goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, but most of the action was at the other end where Nabil Bentaleb dragged a shot wide, Sandro had a superb volley saved and Tottenhams fluid midfield caused all sorts of problems. But the visitors failed to make their dominance count and the inevitable happened at the start of the second half -- Chelsea took full advantage. The first goal can be put down to Vertonghens unfortunate slip, although the Belgium defender compounded his error by trying to hook the ball back to Lloris while scrambling on the ground. Etoo intervened and slotted a low finish into the corner. Etoo, who was only playing because Fernando Torres was injured in the warmup, was then bundled into by Kaboul from behind as he latched onto Hazards square ball. Kaboul was shown a straight red card and Hazard rolled home the penalty. From then on, it was damage limitation for Spurs and they resisted until the final two minutes. Ba tucked home a finish after Sandro made a mess of clearing Oscars cross and then Kyle Walkers strange headed backpass was pounced on by Ba, who finished under Lloris. Drew Stanton Jersey . Thornton emerged as one of the leagues best defensive ends against the run in 2013. The former undrafted free agent from Division II Southern Arkansas led Philadelphias linemen with 78 tackles and had one sack. Justin Bethel Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip. http://www.thecardinalsshoponline.com/Youth-Troy-Niklas-Cardinals-Jersey/ . First, Ivan Nova decided to have season-ending Tommy John elbow surgery. Then Michael Pineda was suspended for 10 games for using pine tar.MIAMI -- Anxious to end a five-week swoon, the San Francisco Giants are hitting again, which is why theyre back in first place in the NL West. Brandon Crawford and Pablo Sandoval homered Friday, and the Giants totalled 13 hits to beat the Miami Marlins 9-1. All-Star Madison Bumgarner (11-7), relishing the support, allowed one run in six innings. "Good to see everybody playing like that," Bumgarner said. "I guess everybody had a good All-Star break." With the victory, San Francisco overtook the Los Angeles Dodgers atop the division and leads by one percentage point. The Giants began the night averaging less than three runs per game in July, worst in the majors, but theyve totalled 17 runs in their past two games. Those wins came after an 11-22 stretch that cost them first place in the NL West. "This is who we were the first 60-plus games," manager Bruce Bochy said. "Then we turned into a different team." The Marlins lost their fifth game in a row and have dropped 21 of their past 31 to fall seven games under .500 for the first time. "It wasnt what we had drawn up coming back from the break," third baseman Casey McGehee said. "We need to pick it up really quick." San Francisco led 9-0 before Miamis Giancarlo Stanton hit his 22nd home run, most in the NL. His drive passed the home-run sculpture and caromed off the backdrop beyond the centre-field wall. "It was a pretty good pitch, I thought," Bumgarner said. "But everyone knows how far he can hit the ball." Crawford set the tone for the Giants, hitting the 11th pitch he saw for a two-run homer in the second inning off Nathan Eovaldi (5-5). "To have a good at-bat early in the game and get us on the board felt really good," he said. Sandoval hit a three-run homer, his 12th, to end Eovaldis night in the Giants five-run fifth. Sandoval improveed to 8 for 11 lifetime against Eovaldi with nine RBIs. Pat Tillman Jersey. . Buster Posey and Michael Morse each had three of San Franciscos 13 hits. The Giants scored their first four runs with two outs and went 6 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Bumgarner lowered his ERA to 3.38, but also struck out three times to drop his batting average to .256. "Ill trade the not hitting very good for pitching good any day," he said. Eovaldi gave up a season-high eight runs in his shortest outing of the year, lasting just four-plus innings. He came into the game with a career ERA of 12.27 against the Giants, and it went up -- to 13.30 in five starts. "Theyve been able to hit his fastball," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "They take advantage of any mistake that he seems to make. I dont know if theyve got something on him, but theyve been able to do quite a bit of damage." Crawfords eighth homer put the Giants ahead 2-0. They added two more runs in the third on two-out RBI singles by Posey and Morse. Hunter Pence and Morse each doubled and scored in the fifth.
