Tottenham 2-0 Chelsea: Blues stars rated and slated

first_img Eden Hazard – 5 – Missed a glorious chance to equalise from a close range header but allowed his fear of getting hurt get the better of him Diego Costa – 5 – The league’s top goal scorer was controlled expertly by the Spurs defence and was limited to berating his teammates on a poor showing 14 SUB – Willian – 5 – Replaced Alonso on the hour mark and looked short of ideas in his left wing-back role Thibaut Courtois – 6 – Helpless for both Alli goals and dealt with other threats admirably 14 David Luiz – 6 – The most impressive of Chelsea’s defence and provided another outlet in midfield when he attacked 14 Chelsea missed their chance to set a consecutive winning record in the Premier League after losing 2-0 to Tottenham at White Hart Lane.Dele Alli scored two measured headers thanks to a brace of Christian Eriksen crosses to ensure the Blues lead at the top of the table stayed at five points.The loss saw Antonio Conte’s side suffer their first defeat in 14 games ahead of their trip to reigning champions Leicester City in 10 days. But, just how did Antonio Conte’s men perform at White Hart Lane?Click the right arrow, above, to see talkSPORT’s ratings for every Chelsea player from their defeat to Spurs. 14 Marcos Alonso – 6 – Was the first casualty of Conte’s tactical switch but looked a threat when given the opportunity 14 14 14 Victor Moses – 4 – A hapless performance by the converted fullback. Threw himself into rash challenges and was caught out twice by Eriksen’s crosses 14 Nemanja Matic – 5 – Failed to provide the defensive shield the Blues needed and was sloppy in possession on countless occasions Gary Cahill – 4 – At his worst, Cahill can look panicked and indecisive – and tonight was one of those nights. Lucky not to be sent off for two bookable offences N’Golo Kante – 5 – Usually a bundle of energy, the midfielder was bullied by the likes of Dembele and never imposed himself onto the game 14 14 14 14 Pedro – 5 – Infuriated Costa when he refused to make a run into the Spurs penalty area. The Spaniard’s final ball was particularly disappointing 14 14 SUB – Cesc Fabregas – N/A – Came on for the last 10 minutes and made no impact Cesar Azpilicueta – 5 – Allowed Alli to sneak in twice in what was a defensively naïve performance SUB – Michy Batshuayi – N/A – Replaced Moses with five minutes left.
