Man of the match
Spur welcome their London rival, Chelsea to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for another London Derby match tonight.
Since Tuchel’s appointment, Chelsea have gotten 4 points in two matches, won their last game against Burnley (2-0) and moved up to 8th in the EPL table
However, the host, who sit 7th the EPL table, disappointed in a 1-0 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion last time out.
More so, Tottenham were one of 3 EPL clubs Tuchel had faced in European competition before becoming Chelsea manager. The other two teams are Liverpool and Man United
He has won against Tottenham in both legs of the last 16 of UEFA Champions League in 2016 when he was a Borussia Dortmund coach.
Only two of Chelsea’s 17 EPL coaches have lost their first ever London derby in the competition (W9 D6). The two coaches are Guus Hiddink losing 0-1 at Tottenham in 2009 and Andre Villas-Boas 0-1 at QPR in 2011.
Also the Blue have lost 4 of their last 5 away EPL matches (W1), as many as they had in their previous 16 on the road (W7 D5).
First Half: Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea
The Blue started this game with real purpose, dictating the early stages of play with the likes of Mount and Hudson-Odoi causing the host all sorts of problems.
However, their hard work eventually paid off, with Jorginho converting a penalty past Lloris after Dier had needlessly fouled Werner to the right of goal.
Jose Mourinho will have to make some alterations at half-time if he really want to win this game
Second Half: Tottenham 0-0 Chelsea
Tuchel's perfect start to life with the Blues continues as Chelsea overcome Spur 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
He makes it 2 wins in 3 matches, lifting his team to sixth in the league.
Chelsea have only lost one of their previous 14 EPL matches after opening the scoring (W11 D2), against Wolves in December.
Jose Mourinho hasn’t won any of his last 6 matches with the Blue in all competitions (D3 L3).
Tuchel has became the first Chelsea coach to keep a clean sheet in each of his first 2 EPL matches since Rafael Benitez did it in 2012.
Tottenham have won just 3 of their last 13 EPL matches in which Kane has not featured (D4 L6).
80%-of all players to score at least 10 EPL goals, Jorginho has the highest percentage of his total coming via penalties (8/10).
