Thomas Tuchel after assuming office as Chelsea boss has picked 7 points out of 9 and kept three clean sheets, a record Jose Mourinho made while in the same office.
Its another London derby between Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea, Tottenham coming from a double defeat and Chelsea who won at Burnley.
The match started with Chelsea showing much character and keeping majority of the possession in the first half, a percentage that has been consistent after Thomas Tuchel took over the team. Tottenham Hotspurs were made to chase the game as Chelsea isolated their opponents and were brave in their decisions on and off the ball.
As many have always criticized possession-based football, Chelsea had to start creating chances and make use of the possession and an error from Eric Dier in the 18-yard box caused his side.
With Timo Werner chasing on to a long pass from Cesar Azpiicueta intercepted by Dier, his experience would have been enough to see him dispose off the ball to calm all the incoming pressure but he put the ball right back into the path of Werner and his clumsy attempt to clear the ball ended up in a penalty to Chelsea.
Jorginho who has been the trusted penalty taker for the side took the ball and slotted it past Hugo Lloris. The goal was enough to win Chelsea all three points against Tottenham Hotspurs who were coming from a bitter lose against Brighton & Hove Albion.
