Chelsea did well to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with all three points, as the Blues dominated the first half against Tottenham.

It was a very good Chelsea performance in the first half, with Jorginho scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Eric Dier gave Chelsea an easy penalty after an unnecessary tackle on Timo Werner in the penalty box.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand slammed Spurs performance after the game and was also critical of Dier’s error.

“Silly, silly decision from Dier, silly mistake,” the Manchester United legend said.

“That Tottenham team and Jose, they’re lucky there’s no fans in that stadium. They’d have been booed off. They were poor.

“There was no shape, zero press on the ball. It’s like a testimonial for them [Chelsea] they’re probably thinking how are we actually sitting here getting no pressure on the ball.

“I just feel that the Spurs team are just sitting there and just relying on Son, an individual to create one moment in the game.

“There’s no method, I’m not seeing any patterns of play in this game. It just seems like a team who don’t have any idea of what they’re doing without the ball.”
