Chelsea player ratings: Kurt Zouma colossus but Hakim Ziyech struggles vs Spurs

Edouard Mendy

Called into action once in the opening 45 minutes, pushing away a Serge Aurier shot from the edge of the box. Good with his feet and vocal as well.

Didn’t have a shot to save in the second half, but on a couple of occasions came out and claimed the ball really well to avert danger. 6

Reece James

A couple of crosses into the box, but unable to really make a bit impact going forward. Good at the back though.

That really changed in the second half and he put in some stunning crosses that Tammy Abraham should have done better with. 7

Thiago Silva

Very solid and calm in the first half, not giving the Spurs forwards much of a chance. A bit slow in possession, though, which meant the tempo wasn’t very high.

In the second half he really showed his class and calmness with everything he did, reading the game well to snuff out any chance that Spurs had. 8

Kurt Zouma

Excellent in the opening half, especially in the air where he dominated. Didn’t give Son or Kane much chance to really have an effort on goal and positioned well.

Really was superb in the second half with his positioning and was all over Son and Kane, who barely had a sniff. He is looking excellent right now. Can let him off the mistake at the end! 9

Ben Chilwell

A couple of nice bits of play in the opening half, but not really the impact down the left and was controlled well by Serge Aurier.

A lot more adventurous in the second half and exposed the space well. However, didn’t have the quality in the last third. 6

Mateo Kovacic

Defensively solid as you would expect by the Croatian during much of the half, but in possession he just wasn’t moving the ball quick enough to break Spurs down.

In the second half he was excellent off the ball, winning possession back giving the Spurs middle of the park nothing. Not much of an impact going forward. 7

N’Golo Kante

Spurs found some space early in the half and were winning the midfield battle, but Kante started to get a hold of the game and breaking up play…
