“Thomas Tuchel proved Jose Mourinho right.

“It does look pretty easy to manage Chelsea right now and a lot harder to be in charge of Tottenham when they do not have Harry Kane.

“Tuchel made it two wins and a draw from his first three games, has even got a tune out of Timo Werner and Chelsea look a team transformed, way too good for Tottenham.

“Spurs boss Mourinho, who tried to wind up Tuchel before the game by claiming how easy it is to win trophies at Chelsea, suffered the indignity of Tottenham losing three league games in a row for the first time since 2012.

“And the reason looks so obvious as they miss Kane so much. They looked toothless without him and the only salvation was there were no fans at White Hart Lane otherwise Mourinho might have a revolt on his hands.”
