Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham: Player ratings


Chelsea saw off Tottenham in a hotly contested London derby on Sunday afternoon, with a stunning strike from Hakim Ziyech the highlight of the day.

The hosts had the best of a feisty first half, but were fortunate to go in at the break level. Romelu Lukaku should have scored in the first minute but skied his shot after excellent work from the effervescent Mason Mount, before Callum Hudson-Odoi failed to direct a back-post header.

Thiago Silva twice headed over from corners either side of a some smooth footwork followed by a dipping strike from Ziyech, who forced a save from Hugo Lloris.

Spurs had their own opening on the break after a quarter of an hour, but Harry Winks’ weak shot was straight at Kepa.

The first of a number of flash points came just before the 20-minute mark, when Matt Doherty survived a swift VAR review after treading on Malang Sarr’s ankle.
