Chelsea narrowly beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Thursday night in north London thanks to a penalty from Jorginho in the first half

Thomas Tuchel remains undefeated in his tenure at Chelsea as the Blues took over the boastful rights against Jose Mourinho’s men

Jorginho brought Chelsea in the 24 Minute after the penalty spot in the deserved lead, which was ultimately the decisive goal in the London derby

It was less than 30 seconds for Chelsea to have their first chance at the game Cesar Azpilicueta threw a ball to Timo Werner but the German, a difficult chance on a rainy north London night, was only able to deflect his header off the goal

Heung-min Son scored from distance in the sixth minute to break the blues record since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival hadn’t received a shot on goal

Two minutes later, Harry Kane’s absence made itself felt by the host Carlos Vinicius broke, but couldn’t see Son waiting for the ball to be fed through Callum Hudson-Odoi returned to force a mistake from the Spurs

It was a dominant performance by the Blues in the first half and they opened up Jose Mourinho’s team with an excellent football. Mason Mount was eventually played but he chose to pass rather than shoot on goal, however a good chance was missed

And despite all of Chelsea’s dominance, they won 23rd place A penalty awarded in the minute Werner was fouled by Eric Dier in the penalty area and Jorginho stepped up a minute later to give Tuchel’s team the advantage over their London counterparts. There was no “hop, skip, jump” in sight as he coolly touched Hugo Lloris shot past

But ten minutes later, Chelsea suffered a heavy blow. Thiago Silva cut a ball in defense and injured his thigh He was sent off and replaced in the back by Andreas Christensen

Three minutes before the break, Serge Aurier had half a chance when he climbed the highest after Son’s free kick, but he could only head a long way

Spurs looked like a new team in the second half as Mourinho provided cover on the left to counter dominance and threats from Hudson-Odoi and James

It was Chelsea who had the chance of the first half of the second half, but Hudson-Odoi was able to win in 54 Minute only one shot from outside the penalty area

Werner was played by Mount five minutes later after an excellent run and was ready to pull the trigger from close range, but Aurier returned vitally to one final challenge, to give the German a specific goal and second goal to refuse from Chelsea

Marcos Alonso loves a goal against Spurs and in 64 In the minute, Reece James put it down for the Spaniard, but he shot far

Dier, who conceded the penalty in the first half, nearly gave Chelsea a second with a back pass that nearly hit Lloris, but the Frenchman managed to remove the threat

The chances kept coming up to Chelsea when Kovacic broke in several acres of space, but at the last moment he panicked when the runners on either side of him took the chance and hit them far

N’Golo Kante came in for the last 17 minutes, replacing Kovacic when Tuchel tried to quit the game

Mount and Werner met in 76 Minute well connected, but Lloris has directed Mount’s little effort to the farthest corner

Erik Lamela was brought in by Mourinho as Spurs tried to equalize, forcing Edouard Mendy to make a good save 11 minutes from time

Spurs had in 87 A great chance when Vinicius Aurier scored from close range, but he could only take his header far

And Chelsea managed to take all three points in North London, a big result for the men of Blues and Tuchel who they watch climb to sixth place in the Premier League via Spurs
