Chelsea’s Individual Player Ratings In Their Hard Fought Win Against Tottenham Hotspur

After an underwhelming first-half from the Blues, Chelsea managed to end Tottenham’s unbeaten run with an excellent second half performance. Pedro cancelled out Eriksen’s long-range strike with an equaliser to match the Dane’s quality hit. Victor Moses gave Chelsea the lead with seven minutes into the second half. Chelsea fans were delighted with the way their team responded in the second half but the Spurs fans will be disappointed that their team ran out of steam in the second. Below are Chelsea’s player ratings:

Thibaut Courtois

Rating: 7.5

Courtois made some good saves but a majority of the shots from Tottenham were way off the target. Nonetheless, the Belgian was good between the sticks.

Cesar Azpilicueta

Rating: 8

One of the better defenders of the three centre-backs for Chelsea, Azpilicueta did really well to keep Kane at bay. He dealt quite well with Tottenham’s pressure in the first half.

David Luiz

Rating: 7

David Luiz was often a nuisance during set-pieces and troubled Tottenham with his runs. His defensive work was also praiseworthy.

Gary Cahill

Rating: 7.5

Cahill did really well to deal with Kyle Walker’s pace. He put in some really good tackles and was always in the thick of the defensive work from Chelsea.

Marcos Alonso

Rating: 7.5

Alonso’s movement was fairly limited in the first-half with Kyle Walker making runs on his side but enjoyed a lot of freedom in the second half. He put in several good crosses but skied a really good chance inside the box in the second half.

Nemanja Matic

Rating: 7

Matic did well to complement Kante’s positioning and helped Chelsea clog Tottenham’s midfield.

N’Golo Kanté

Rating: 8

Kanté had a fine game as he put in numerous vital tackles and interceptions. Despite his physique, he did really well in the duels against Dembele and Wanyama. His offensive contribution was also noteworthy.

Victor Moses

Rating: 8.5

Moses had another excellent game as he was rewarded with for his exploits on Chelsea’s right causing Tottenham a lot of trouble. He put several dangerous crosses and came up with the vital goal early in the second half.

Pedro

Rating: 7.5

Pedro came up with a superb equaliser to cancel out Eriksen’s goal in the first half. His runs down Tottenham’s left helped Chelsea create width which Costa exploited.

Eden Hazard

Rating: 7.5

Hazard helped Chelsea maintain possession in some difficult areas. His pace and tricks helped Chelsea in gaining momentum but his influence was often limited as he didn’t see much of the ball in the first half.

Diego Costa

Rating: 7.5

Costa’s performances in the two halves were highly contrasting. After being allowed only a few touches in the first half, his influence grew in the second as he assisted Moses for Chelsea’s second goal.
