Thomas Tuchel continued his impressive start to life as Chelsea manager with a 1-0 win at Tottenham on Thursday night.

 

Jorginho’s first half penalty goal was enough to settle the London derby and inflict a third consecutive Premier League defeat on Spurs for the first time since April 2012.

Chelsea followed up a 2-0 win over Burnley with this win that reinvigorates his top-four hopes and further diminishes the Spurs.

 

Tottenham were without Harry Kane and his absence was felt as they lacked a clear threat of goal. The Portuguese manager now has a job on his hands to revive the club’s season.

 

Tuchel’s men enjoyed full control of the game and finally took the lead in the 24th minute.

Eric Dier appeared to intercept a ball he was looking for down the left channel, but the defender tried to clear the ball in the penalty area while he was on the ground and kicked Werner.

Jorginho made no mistake from the penalty spot and converted to give Chelsea a well-deserved lead.

Another dismal showing from Spurs, who barely spent any time in the opposition half and gave Chelsea’s defence an easy 45 minutes.

Mourinho’ men didn’t put any pressure until the last ten minutes and their golden opportunity came in 87, when Aurier cross was meet by Vinicius who could only node it wide.

That was their best and last moment of hope as Chelsea kept a third consecutive clean sheet under Tuchel.
