Chelsea played Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday evening in an interesting match.
The derby between the two premier league clubs was the final one of the weekend and many football fans were excited as they eagerly waited for the match.
Thomas Tuchel who is the Chelsea manager used his usual formation as he planned to demolish Spurs. The opening forty five minutes were relatively boring as Chelsea failed to register a shot on target for the first time since Thomas Tuchel took over as the manager.
The current European Champions however came back stronger in the second half. Brazilian defender Thiago Silva was the man who broke the deadlock. Thiago Silva headed home a beautiful goal from Marcos Alonso's well taken corner kick. Ngolo Kante then doubled the lead some few minutes later. Rudiger scored in the additional time to make it three.
Fans were elated by the performance of Thiago Silva. The defender gave Tottenham strikers a hard time as he kept on intercepting their balls. Fans also asked Tuchel to make Silva the captain. Thiago Silva used to captain the PSG side before his move to Chelsea. See reactions from fans down below.
