Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Chelsea post-match analysis:

Straightway Chelsea got a chance from the start but Werner’s looping head went over the crossbar. Chelsea controlled the possession and dictated the pace of the game in the first half.

Spurs were abysmal in the first half and could not create anything and looked clueless with the ball.

Chelsea got a penalty midway through the first half after a stupid foul from Dier and Jorginho made no mistake to convert it.

Chelsea were superior in the first half but they should have threatened Hugo Lloris’ goal and put him under more pressure.

In the second half, the story didn’t change a lot. Chelsea kept the possession but this time Tottenham tried to press them but didn’t have much joy.

Chelsea could not find many openings which something to look forward in this very great victory.

Spurs had no plan how they could beat the Chelsea defence and they could not manage many chances apart from one but Vinicius could not hit the ball on target.

Notable performances:

Mason Mount(CAM) – (7/10)(Chelsea): He was everywhere on the pitch and helped in defence as well as in attack. He could be an asset for the Blues in future.

Antonio Rudiger(CB) – (6.5/10)(Chelsea): He is doing well since the Tuchel came in and they are starting to keep clean sheets which will give them much needed confidence in the upcoming matches.

Son Heung-Min(LW) – (5.5/10)(Tottenham Hotspur): He could not step up in the absence of Harry Kane and he is looking lost without Kane.

Spurs will play next at home against West Brom in the league on Sunday and Chelsea’s next match is away to Sheffield United on Sunday in the Premier League.
