Spurs player ratings vs Chelsea: Sissoko and Hojbjerg run the midfield

Recovered from illness to start and played his part in an impressive rearguard, saving brilliantly from Mount with ten minutes left.

Made a superb late intervention to deny Pulisic in another impressive display of defending. His opportunities to get forward were limited but saw a good effort saved by Mendy.

Shaky on the ball but impressive without it. The 23-year-old made a number of important interventions defensively, even if Spurs missed Alderweireld’s distribution. An encouraging full debut.

Starting to establish himself as a rock at centre-half, which is good news for Spurs and England. Would’ve have earned a higher grade but uncharacteristically sloppy in possession in the second half.

Looked nervous in the early stages but grew in confidence.  Given a difficult afternoon by James.

Covered every blade of grass and babysat for Aurier and Rodon in difficult moments. Selfless.

Increasingly Mourinho’s on-pitch general. Helped to protect the back four with Sissoko and barely lost possession.

Well marshalled by Chelsea and quiet by his standards. Wasn’t allowed to get one-on-one with a defender where he is normally devastating.

Ran himself into the ground for an hour again, with another standout display of pressing, quick passing and trickery. 

Worked his socks off for the team again but will look back on an early chance sent over the bar with regret.

Another tireless display spent between the No.9 and No.10 roles but well managed by Kante and Chelsea’s defence. Set up Bergwijn for a fine chance but barely had a sniff at goal himself.

Giovani Lo Celso (Ndombele 65’) 7

Could have not the same impact as against Man City but added fresh legs to the midfield as Spurs held on for a draw.

Replaced Bergwijn as Spurs ran down the clock.
