Spurs player ratings: Tanganga a weak link; Bergwijn promising again


A changed Spurs side, who started with a 4-4-2 system, withstood Chelsea pressure for the opening 45 minutes, and had a first-half goal by Harry Kane disallowed for his shove on Thiago Silva in the build-up.

Within two minutes of the restart, Chelsea took the lead through Hakim Ziyech’s stunning curler, and Silva made 2-0 soon after, heading home Mason Mount’s free-kick.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Stamford Bridge to rate the Spurs players…

Hugo Lloris 6

Rooted to the spot by the flight of Ziyech’s brilliant goal. Made a smart save to deny the winger another seconds later.

Japhet Tanganga 4

A weak link, particularly after he was booked. Too easily beaten by Callum Hudson-Odoi in build-up to Ziyech’s goal.

Eric Dier 7

Added presence to Spurs’ back line on a solid return from injury but gave away free-kick for Chelsea’s second goal. Easy to see why he is so valued by Conte.

Davinson Sanchez 5

Bizarrely challenged Silva with his foot rather than head for Chelsea’s second goal. Too easily turned by Romelu Lukaku for a second-half chance.

Ben Davies 5

Back at left back, given a tough examination by the brilliant Ziyech and offered nothing going forward.

Matt Doherty 5

Playing on the right of the midfield four, he made no inroads into Chelsea’s half and lacked the pace to help deal with Hudson-Odoi.

Harry Winks 5

Less comfortable in a two than a three. His corner created a late chance for Kane, well saved by Kepa.
