Tuchel’s Chelsea goes like a shot ready to win back a Premier League that has eluded him for 5 seasons. With goals from Thiago Silva, Kanté and Rüdiger, the European champion stormed the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and took the lead after withstanding the local onslaught during the first half and besieging the goal of Cries in the second.
Lloris; Reguilón, Dier, Romero (Davinson S., 83 ‘), Emerson; Dele Alli, Hojbjerg, NDombélé (Skipp, 62 ‘); They are, Lo Celso (Bryan Gil, 62 ‘), Harry Kane.
Kepa; Rüdiger, Thiago Silva, Christensen; Marcos Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, Azpilicueta; Havertz (Werner, 70 ‘), Mount (Kanté, 45’); Lukaku.
0-1 M. 49, Thiago Silva; 0-2 M. 57, Kanté; 0-3 M.92, Rüdiger.
And it is that the first part was ‘spur’ from top to bottom, with a very intense first minutes where they torpedoed the midfield line of Jorginho and Kovacic, the engine room Tuchel, with hellish pressure.
Playing with just a few touches and improving the image of the last games, Nuno’s men handled the duel, but were unable to pierce Kepa’s goal.
But Chelsea remained very solid behind and left some notice that, with a few passes, he was also able to stand in the area of Cries.
Some notices that became threats as soon as the second half began, which was a totally different story.
Tottenham’s intense start in the first was replicated by Chelsea in the second erasing the ‘spurs’ from the map.Tuchel moved the bench, gave entrance to Kanté, after overcoming the physical problems that dragged, and began to find cracks in the scheme of a Nuno who saw in first person the discomfort of playing against the European champion.
And it is that the ‘blues’, when they have the opportunity to bite, showed again that they do not forgive.
5 minutes after the restart, after a corner kick taken by Marcos Alonso, Thiago Silva completed a great individual performance with a header that broke the scoreboard and advanced to the visitors.
About to turn 37, the Brazilian was imperial in defense, favored by the defense of three that conceals the implicit deficiencies with age, and was decisive in attack.
With this goal, Tottenham collapsed, unable to understand how they could be behind on the scoreboard after locking up the ‘blues’ in their area for the first 45 minutes.
And in the midst of this confusion Kanté appeared to widen the differences in collaboration with Dier, who deflected a shot from afar that fooled the world champion goalkeeper.
From here, the game was a chimera for the locals, who got rid of a bigger win thanks to the poor aim of Werner and the magnificent interventions of a Hugo lloris that nothing could be done to prevent Rüdiger, in addition, he gave the finishing touch to his team with the third and final after an assist precisely from Werner.
A win in the London derby and three more points for a Chelsea that gets absolutely everything and that presents a serious bid to win the regularity championship in England again.
