See how the players are rated

Kepa: Was well protected by his defence as he was barely tested. Handled crosses pretty well, although looked nervy at times. 7/10.

Christensen: Solid at the back as the Chelsea team passed the ball really well from the back. Handled everything that came his way with relative ease. 7/10.

Thiago Silva: Massive performance from the Brazilian. Calm and composed defending, and his early second half goal gave Chelsea momentum to go on and win the game. He was always a threat in the Tottenham box from corners and his defensive contribution was top class as well. 9/10

Rudiger: Beast performance as you’d always expect from the German. Top performance at the left side of the defence and handled the threat of Harry Kane easily. Pushed forward when he could, passed the ball well, and one of his forward forays led to him scoring the the third goal. 9/10

Azpilicueta: Marshalled Son and Ndombele very well. Good captain performance as he played as a right wing-back today. 8/10

Alonso: Top performance from the Spaniard. Could have scored a goal but a brilliant defending prevented him. Delivered a fine cross for Silva to score from. Kept bombarding the left flank with confidence. 8.5/10

Jorginho: Good game. Struggled to dominate the game in the first half. Was brilliant in the second half when Kante came on. 7/10

Kovacic: Good game especially in the second half. Brilliant link up play with the forward players and marauded the midfield as he kept distributing the ball. Had one good chance that he should have scored from but delayed in taking a shot. Good game generally. 8/10.

Mount: Did okay but had to be sacrificed as Thomas Tuchel switched play at half-time to take over the game from Spurs. 6/10

Kai Havertz: Off the pace in the first half but improved in the second half as he was upfront with Lukaku as Tuchel switched to a 3-5-2 system. 6/10

Lukaku: Top performance even though he didn’t score. Had one brilliant header that troubled Lloris and was a bully all through the game. His movement was great and he kept going into good positions. 7/10


Kante: His introduction changed the game as he lifted up the performance of the team. Pressed well, won the ball, helped his teammates and scored a wicked goal. Top class from the Frenchman. 9/10

Werner: Came on for Havertz with 20 minutes left and was keen on proving a point. Always looked dangerous and gave a good assist for Rudiger to score the third goal. 7/10
