CHELSEA condemned Jose Mourinho to back-to-back home league defeats for the first time in his managerial career.
Jorginho converted a first-half penalty after Eric Dier tripped Timo Werner as they battled for the loose ball.
And that proved the only goal of the game as a passive Tottenham side offered virtually nothing in attack.
Simon Phillips gives his verdict on how the Blues players fared in the pouring rain in North London…
Edouard Mendy – 6
Some dodgy moments with the ball at his feet again but he largely remained untested in terms of efforts on goal from Spurs.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Hit a great pass for Timo Werner to win Chelsea a penalty in the first half and put in another great shift at right centre-back.
Thiago Silva – 8
Was his usual calm and world-class self before unfortunately going off injured on 35 minutes.
Antonio Rudiger – 7
Some decent touches and calm passing and he almost had a couple of half-chances to score as well.
Reece James – 7
A good threat down the right-hand side working closely and linking up nicely with Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount.
Rusty with some of his touches on occasion.
Jorginho – 8
Really helped Chelsea control and keep possession in deep areas and he took his penalty very well.
Great work defensively and worked very hard.
Mateo Kovacic – 8
Great under pressure on the ball and in the transition for Chelsea.
He controls possession well alongside Jorginho and looked to drive with the ball from deep.
Marcos Alonso – 6
Quite a few clumsy moments from him on the left and his lack of pace was tested often by Spurs – but some decent contributions going forward.
Mason Mount – 8
Was a real threat for Spurs to deal with in the first half but lacked an end product.
Worked very hard getting up and back and was still one of Chelsea’s biggest attacking weapons.
Timo Werner – 4
His first touch and hold up play was very poor but he did well to win the penalty in the first half.
He didn’t improve much in the second half and went pretty quiet. Chelsea really need him to start turning up.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – 8
Chelsea’s main attacking threat once again and he was basically asked to play as a second striker right up alongside Werner.
Direct with the ball and very threatening with his link-up play, especially with Mount.
Andreas Christensen (for Silva, 36 mins) – 6
Defended fairly well after coming on for Silva early on, but his touch was a little off on occasions and he gave away a couple of silly passes.
Christian Pulisic (for Hudson-Odoi, 65 mins) – 7
Involved right away and almost had a clear chance to score – he was a real menace with his direct pace going at the Spurs defence.
N’Golo Kante (for Kovacic, 74 mins) – 6
