Chelsea FC climbed to the top of the English Premier League table with a convincing away win over rival London club Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite a disappointing first half performance by the European champions, goals from Thiago Silva, Ngolo Kante, and a magnificent finish from Antonio Rudiger were enough to secure all three points for Thomas Tuchel's team.
To be honest, the scoreline should have been higher if not for some sloppy finishing from the likes of Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner.
Following the victory, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva was named man of the match following a superb performance.
Silva played a flawless game for Thomas Tuchel's team against Tottenham, particularly in the first half, when he was able to minimize the attacking danger of Son and Harry Kane.
He added a goal to his stellar defensive performance by scoring for Chelsea from a corner kick in the second half.
Is Thiago Silva deserving of today's man of the match award?
