Thomas Tuchel registered his first big London derby win since taking over at Chelsea thanks to a narrow 1-0 triumph over Tottenham on Thursday.
It was a devastating evening for the home side, with their manager Jose Mourinho losing back to back home league games for the very first time in his career.
Nevertheless, here is a look at how these players performed in this high-end encounter in the Premier League in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday.
Hugo Lloris: 7/10
While the Spurs goalkeeper couldn’t keep out Jorginho’s penalty, he only had one notable save to make to deny Mason Mount late in the game.
Serge Aurier: 6.5/10
He hardly had a chance to move forward and provide offensive support for his teammates.
Toby Alderweireld: 7/10
He was solid in dealing with Timo Werner, barely allowing the German to penetrate the lines.
Eric Dier: 2/10
Eric Dier was by far the worst performer for Tottenham in this game.
Ben Davies: 6.5/10
The former Swansea starlet deserves credit for remaining strong defensively.
Moussa Sissoko: 6/10
Harry Winks may have been a better option.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: 6.5/10
The Dane couldn’t provide the solidity that was needed in the middle of the park.
His influence waned significantly as the game progressed.
Tanguy Ndombele: 5/10
Barely providing any sort of creativity going forward.
Carlos Vinicius: 4/10
Carlos Vinicius had an awful game in the number nine slot.
Son Heung-Min: 6/10
Son Heung-Min struggled to influence the game in the absence of Harry Kane.
Erik Lamela: 6.5/10
The playmaker had one effort on target, testing Edouardo Mendy.
Lucas Moura: 6.5/10
Lucas Moura fared well after coming on for Bergwijn in the 69th minute.
Edouardo Mendy: 6.5/10
Edouardo Mendy didn’t have much to do throughout the entirety of the game.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 7/10
Cesar Azpilicueta used his experience to defend the threat of Son.
Thiago Silva: 7/10
His night was cut short by a thigh problem that forced him to come off.
Antonio Rudiger: 7/10
The German international did well to remain strong and keeping Tottenham at bay.
Reece James: 7/10
Delivered a few crosses to keep the Spurs defence occupied.
Jorginho was the hub of the Chelsea midfield in this game.
Mateo Kovacic: 8/10
Mateo Kovacic proved to be Chelsea’s ideal answer to Tottenham’s Hojbjerg.
Marcos Alonso: 7/10
Marcos Alonso did an excellent job on the far side.
Callum Hudson-Odoi: 6.5/10
He never really troubled Lloris and was eventually replaced after the hour mark.
Mason Mount: 6.5/10
Mason Mount was ineffective in the number ten position for Chelsea.
Timo Werner: 7/10
Still lacking the goals, but did win the penalty.
Andreas Christensen: 7/10
Andreas Christensen did well to keep things tidy at the back.
Christian Pulisic: 6.5/10
Made a couple of eye-catching runs, but failed to deliver the final ball.
N’Golo Kante: 6/10
Made one foul on Lucas that got him a yellow.
