Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side move as much as sixth within the league desk after picking up the all-important three factors towards Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues began on the front foot, controlling the ball and asserting their dominance within the closing third.
Their efforts had been rewarded on the twenty-third minute when Timo Werner was introduced down by Eric Dier.
Finally, Jorginho transformed from twelve yards to present Chelsea the lead.
Within the second half, there were only a few chances from both aspects. Tuchel’s men had probabilities to kill the game off however managed to bag all three points in the end.

All through the sport, the midfield and the forwards acquired themselves into nice positions however sadly lacked that killer blow within the penalty field. It is never straightforward to get a result at Tottenham, but when they managed to transform their half probabilities, the Blues would have been left to rue their missed chances. We’re seeing spectacular performances from the protection and the midfield now it’s time to get the forwards up and working.
3. Mateo Kovacic thriving under Tuchel
The one factor that frustrates us all with Kovacic is his skill to ship in the closing third. Outside of the opposition field, the Croatian worldwide is a pleasure to look at. Throughout the game with Tottenham, Mateo’s skill to drive ahead and trigger issues for Tottenham’s backline was obvious. Kovacic was a real catalyst within the Blues’ attacking play till he was substituted halfway by way of the second half. Mateo seems to have fashioned a good partnership with Jorginho in midfield to date, whether or not it lasts stays to be seen.

Regardless of coming off the bench in Tuchel’s first game in cost, Mason Mount has started each of Chelsea’s games since. The England worldwide was “MOTM” in the Blues’ victory over Tottenham. From minute one to minute ninety, Mount was on the coronary heart of every part. Mason has caught the attention of many across the league this season. Moreover his poor ending within the closing third, Mount was exceptional against Mourinho’s males.
