Chelsea continued their renaissance under new manager Thomas Tuchel with a stunning 1-0 win against London rival Tottenham Hotspur. The Blues were the better team on the night so far and have yet to achieve a goal under German tactics, who have breathed new life into the club after the recent sacking of Frank Lampard.
Chosen to lead the line on the night, Timo Werner started the game well and nearly scored a header in the first minute. However, the former RB Leipzig striker played a key role in winning the penalty for the game’s solitary goal. His clever movement inside the box prompted Eric Dyer to commit an unnecessarily dishonest, as the referee pointed to the penalty spot.
Jorginho’s penalty marked a crucial win for Chelsea against Tottenham Hotspur
Jorinho stepped in and converted the spot-kick with relative ease, as the Blues broke the deadlock at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after prolonged pressure.
The home side failed to make their presence felt and were guilty of being too passive, as they sat back down and let Chelsea come to them. In Harry Kane’s absence, Son Hyung-min was not in his best form, while Carlos Vinicius did not do enough to satisfy Jose Muthinho’s faith.
As Chelsea scored two wins and one draw in three matches under Tuchel, here are the best tweets from the game.
