Loic Remy celebrates scoring Chelsea’s third goal against Tottenham.

Despite Diego Costa’s unavailable due to suspension, Chelsea were able to find a way past Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris three times with goals from Eden Hazard, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy.

It was Drogba who had gotten the early nod from head coach Jose Mourinho to start the game, but Remy came on later as a substitute and made his mark on the game with the Blues’ third goal in the second-half.

“To be honest, I felt very happy after this goal because when you're a striker you want the sensation of scoring in every game, " he told Chelsea TV following the match. "For me it's really important to score and the opportunity was there because Diego [Costa] was not involved tonight and Didier played well again and it's important to increase the level and keep going in this direction.”

Remy has just made one start for Chelsea in the Premier League and has come off the bench on five occasions, and yet he shares the same number of goals as scored by the whole Liverpool strike force that includes Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini.

Player Goals Games started Games substituted
Loic Remy 2 1 5
Rickie Lambert 1 4 8
Daniel Sturridge 1 3 1
Fabio Borini 0 1 4
Mario Balotelli 0 8 1
