Chelsea controlled possession at the start of the game. But chances were far and few to come by. Harry Kane put Tottenham Hotspur in front as the half came to its conclusion, but the goal was ruled out by the referee as Kane appeared to have fouled Thiago Silva. The European champions were fortunate to go into the half-time with the scores level.
Just two minutes into the second half, Hakim Ziyech scored a wonder goal to put Chelsea 1-0 up. The veteran defender Thiago Silva scored a header from a free-kick just eight minutes later. The hosts controlled the game for the rest of the half. But both Kane and Lukaku saw their efforts on goal saved late on in the game. The game ended with the hosts comfortably winning 2-0.
Tottenham Player ratings
Hugo Lloris 6
Lloris could not do anything about the two goals. But he made some fine stops to deny both Ziyech and Lukaku late on in the game.
Japhet Tanganga 4
Got booked for a challenge on Callum Hudson-Odoi and did not look comfortable defending against the Chelsea forward-line.
Eric Dier 5
Gave the free-kick away for Chelsea’s second goal and lost possession a couple of times when put under pressure.
Davinson Sanchez 5
Got spun by Lukaku time and time again in the whole game. He should have done better to challenge Silva for the 2nd goal.
Ben Davies 5
Did not get forward at all and struggled to keep up with Ziyech at times.
Matt Doherty 5
Playing in an unusual right-midfield position and really struggled into the game.
Ryan Sessegnon 5
Just like Doherty, Sessegnon played in an unusual left-midfield position. He set up the disallowed Kane goal and one of his shots went out for a thrown-in most noticeably.
Harry Winks 5
His corner created a late chance for Kane, which was well saved by Kepa. Struggled to keep the Chelsea midfield at bay.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 6
Hojbjerg worked really hard in the centre of midfield and tried to break up play but could not run the Spurs’ midfield on his own.
Steven Bergwijn 5
He looked full-on confidence after the two last goals against Leicester. But could not have the same impact on this game.
Harry Kane 6
Unlucky to not come out of the London derby with a goal. Firstly, had one goal ruled out and secondly his header was brilliantly saved by Kepa late on.
Oliver Skipp 6
Tried to make forward runs from midfield and tied to make things happen after coming on.
Lucas Moura 5
Did not have any real impact after coming on.
