Final Thoughts

Pressure continues to pile on Jose Mourinho after a third successive defeat. That's three wins in 12 Premier League games. 

Without marksman Harry Kane, Spurs look lost up front. Carlos Vinicius didn't have any service, although he had the opportunity to nick a point at the death, and it was another disappointing performance by Heung-Min Son. Thankfully, Kane should return next week, but the next question will be whether Jose Mourinho will be in charge?


Chelsea have finally ended their top six 'hoodoo' to beat Tottenham Hotspur and are now just four points off the top four.

The Blues were in control and should have added more to the scoreline, although they only managed two shots on target. It certainly looks more rosy in Chelsea compared to North London.

Half-Time: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea head into the break ahead. 

Spurs just haven't got into the game so far. They look lost going forward, only managing one shot on target so far, and struggling to keep possession. 

Thomas Tuchel will be pleased in his first London derby. Chelsea have dominated the ball with 71% possession and creating decent opportunities. The German manager is well on the way to end Chelsea's top 'six' hoodoo. 

I will be impressed if Spurs supporters can stay awake for second half.

A well-deserved lead for Chelsea.

Chelsea's unwanted stat

Chelsea have failed to beat any of the top 'six' teams so far this season. 

They have drawn twice in five games, losing the other three games.

Can Thomas Tuchel end that unwanted stat by beating Spurs tonight?

17:18a month ago

The pressure is building on Jose

This is the toughest period of Jose Mourinho's Spurs tenure so far. Spurs could fall to 8th with a defeat tonight and be seven points off the top four.

However, the most concerning part are the lack of energy, creativity or goalscoring threats on the pitch.

Could Mourinho be facing the sack if Spurs suffer another defeat tonight?

That Sonny wonder goal

Early Team news!

Spurs are without Harry Kane, but Mourinho confirmed that England captain could return next week to face either Everton or Man City. Dele Alli, Giovanni Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon are also unavailable.

Kurt Zouma, Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz are doubts for Chelsea. 

16:55a month ago


Spurs head into the London derby on back-to-back losses against Liverpool and Brighton Hove & Albion. The Pressure is piling on Jose Mourinho after only two wins in nine Premier League games and now sit seven points off the top four with two games in hand.

Thomas Tuchel's arrival has certainly given Chelsea a lift in recent weeks. The Blues comfortably beat Burnley two-nil at the weekend but will enter tonight's game haven't yet beaten a top 'six' side this season.
