Chelsea 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur – Player Ratings

Tottenham Hotspur finally ended their 28 year Stamford Bridge hoodoo when they beat Chelsea 3-1 today. Victory for Mauricio Pochetinno’s men all but guarantees their place in the top four and ends the hopes of Atonio Conte’s side. Let’s see how the players rated.

Chelsea 

Caballero 5

Had no chance with Spurs first two goals, but didn’t exactly cover himself in glory for the third.

Rudiger 6

Excellent ball in the build up to his sides goal, and gave little away defensively.

Christensen 4

Looked so composed earlier in the season, but today was further evidence that he is starting to struggle in big games.

Azpilicueta 5

Solid for the most part, although he did let Alli run off him too easily for the second.

Moses 6

Covered a huge amount of ground up and down the right flank, and provided the assist for Morata’s goal.

Kante 6

Got through a huge amount of work in the centre of the park, but was eventually over run by a rampant Spurs side in the second half.

Fabregas 4

Really struggled against the pace and dynamism of the victors midfield. Strangely poor in possession.

Alonso 5

Like most of his team-mates excellent in first-half but poor in second period. Should have done a lot better with a close range volleyed chance late on.

Willian 6

Looked a threat with the ball at his feet at times, although this was nowhere near the level of his recent form.

Morata 6

Took his goal well and did a decent job of linking the play, but he faded as the game went on, and should have done better with a couple of half chances in second period.

Hazard 6

Chelsea’s star man was neat and tidy in possession, without every really being able to hurt the opposition.

Spurs 

Lloris 5

Capped off a shaky start to the game by horribly misjudging the cross for Morata’s opener.

Trippier 7

Unable to impact the game as much as usual going forward, but still a decent shift by the England international.

Vertonghen 8

Another excellent display from one of Spurs best players this season. Has really stepped up in Alderweireld’s absence.

Sanchez 7

A couple of erratic moments aside, a solid showing by the Colombia centre-back.

Davies 7

Had a real job on his hands against the marauding Moses, but stuck to his task well.

Dier 8

Battled away tirelessly in centre of midfield and played a superb through ball for Alli’s first goal.

Dembele 8

Excellent, the longer the game went on the more he began to dominate the midfield exchanges.

Lamela 8

Brilliant touch and movement all day, a really selfless performance.

Alli 9 (MOTM)

Answered his critics with a match winning brace. His touch and finish for the second goal was top class.

Eriksen 9

Scored an outrageous 30-yard-strike on the stroke of half-time that changed the complexion of the game. Passing and movement superb throughout.

Son 7

Struggled when asked to play as a striker in first-half, but grew into the game when moved to the wing in the second period.

Substitutes

Kane 7

Held the ball up well after his introduction, which was exactly what his team needed.

Wanyama N/A

No impact.

Sissoko N/A

No impact.
