Commentary

That is all from this Premier League fixture, until next time!
Chelsea's new manager makes it three wins in three games, lifting his side to sixth in the league, four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. Next the visitors go to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United, while Tottenham, who drop to eighth, next host West Brom as they look to get their Premier League campaign back on track.
Tuchel's perfect start to life with the Blues continues as Chelsea overcome Tottenham 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Jorginho's first-half penalty proves the difference, after a clumsy foul by Dier on Werner in the 24th minute, and Spurs cannot have any complaints with their loss here. The hosts did have second-half chances through Vinicius and Son, however, Mendy was rarely tested throughout, meaning the visitors are deserved winners in this London derby.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-1 CHELSEA
90' + 3' OVER! The ball cannons and ricochets off numerous bodies before falling to Son, who snatches at his strike, drilling it over the bar under the pressure of Alonso. That will probably be the last chance for Spurs here.
90' + 2' Mount takes an age over a throw-in, aware of the need to waste time before eventually allowing James to take. The Blues are on course for another three points under Tuchel, as long as they can hold out in the final minute of additional time.
90' + 1' There will be three minutes of added time as Mourinho's men press for an equaliser in this London derby.
89' Dier manages to convince Lamela that he should take the free-kick, whipping it over the wall to the left of goal and wide of the target. Mendy has already gone the wrong way, expecting a shot towards the other corner but none of that matters as Dier's effort ends up going wide.
Azpilicueta
Yellow Card
88' Azpilicueta does his best to plead his innocence but Marriner is having none of it, booking the Spaniard and awarding Spurs a free-kick 25 yards from goal.
87' WIDE! Mendy's wayward clearance allows Spurs the chance to regain possession. The hosts work it out to the right-hand side, where Aurier delivers an inviting delivery to the head of Vinicius. The Brazilian striker climbs above Christensen and Azpilicueta but can only head agonisingly wide to the left of Mendy's goal.
86' Lucas takes the game into his own hands, twisting past Jorginho to gain a yard on his opposite man before snapping a right-footed effort over the bar from 25 yards out.
85' The hosts have lost two of their last three home league games against Chelsea (W1), more than they had in their previous 11 (W5 D5 L1). A loss here would be the first time they have lost consecutive home league games against the Blues since a run of three between April 2004-August 2005.
84' Mount's set-piece delivery is fairly poor, allowing Dier to clear with relative ease. Pulisic then recycles the free-kick, coasting towards the edge of the area before seeing his shot deflected and looping into the hands of Lloris.
83' Pulisic teases the Spurs midfield, inviting Hojbjerg in to intercept before racing away from him outside the area. The Dane cannot keep up with the Blues' substitute and is forced into conceding a free-kick to the right of goal.
N. Kanté
Yellow Card
81' Kante has two attempts at fouling Lucas and on the second attempt catches the Brazilian with a swinging right leg. For the Frenchman's cynical efforts, he becomes the next name in Marriner's book.
C. Pulisic
Yellow Card
79' Pulisic becomes the first Chelsea name in the book for a foul in the build-up to Lamela's chance. Marriner had played advantage before coming back to book the American.
79' CHANCE! At last Spurs have a shot on target through Lamela. The Argentine evades the challenge of Kante, moving to the left of the area before curling a left-footed effort towards the left-hand corner. Mendy, who has rarely been called upon all game, comfortably saves as he dives down to his right to push away.
78' Despite the Blues holding just the one-goal advantage, the hosts have rarely tested Mendy this half. In fact, they have not had a shot in the second half, with their last attempt coming through Aurier in the 42nd minute.
76' SAVE! Mount, who has been excellent all game, gets played in by Werner and isolates himself against Dier before shooting with his left foot from inside the area. Lloris is alert to the danger, diving to his left to parry the chance to the feet of Davies, who then clears down the pitch.
75' Werner ghosts inside, leaving Aurier to shoot from the left of the area. The German's effort gets blocked, falling to James, whose left-footed strike then also gets blocked. The third loose ball arrives at the feet of Pulisic, however, the American has strayed into an offside position and Spurs get the free-kick.
N. Kanté
M. Kovačić
74' Tuchel makes his final change as he opts for the defensive cover of Kante to replace Kovacic in midfield.
72' The hosts win a rare corner down the right but the delivery is poor, which allows Rudiger to tower above every one and head away. Son recycles the set-piece and smartly wins a free-kick, courtesy of a needless Pulisic foul.
71' Pulisic leaves two of Spurs' defenders standing as he races inside towards the edge of the D. The American then opts to unselfishly roll in Werner, however, his pass just lacks that final bit of quality, allowing Alderweireld to step in and intervene.
70' Lamela drifts inside, chipping towards the head of Vinicius but Chelsea have plenty of defenders back to head away, despite the presence of Son at the back post.
Lucas Moura
S. Bergwijn
69' Mourinho makes his first change of the game, introducing Lucas for Ndombele, who had been largely ineffective against Jorginho and Kovacic.
68' WIDE! Kovacic storms through the middle of midfield and, with Werner and Mount either side of him, ignores both passing options to shoot from the edge of the area. The Croatian, perhaps due to being off balance, can only direct his right-footed effort wide to the left of goal, much to the annoyance of Tuchel on the touchline.
67' Lloris is called upon for the second time in as many minutes, bravely punching in front of Werner after Pulisic's teasing cross. VAR has a quick check on Lloris' intervention before confirming he fairly won the ball and play goes on.
66' Dier looks to play backwards to Lloris but gets the pass horribly wrong, finding the French goalkeeper's head as opposed to his feet. Lloris does well to react quickly, heading away to his left before exchanging a few choice words with the English centre-back.
C. Pulisic
C. Hudson-Odoi
65' Hudson-Odoi, who repeatedly caused Davies problems down the right-hand side, comes off and is replaced by Pulisic.
64' Werner's cross evades every one at the back post but James recovers the ball, eventually playing back towards the edge of the area, where Alonso volleys wildly over the target with his right foot.
P. Højbjerg
Yellow Card
63' Hojbjerg, perhaps frustrated by his side's timid performance so far, goes in late on Jorginho in the middle of the park and gets booked by Marriner.
61' Consecutive corners come for Tuchel's side and, on the second occasion, it looks like Rudiger has a chance at the back post with his right foot. The German centre-back swivels and shoots but none of that matters as the assistant has his flag up for offside.
60' CLOSE! Chelsea play out from the back, allowing Mount the opportunity to carry the ball over the halfway line and feed Werner inside the area. The German striker looks set to shoot past Lloris until Aurier pulls off a remarkable last-ditch tackle to concede the corner and dispossess the visitors' forward.
59' Mount, as he has done all game, finds another pocket of space and gets fouled from behind by Sissoko. While the Frenchman did give the foul away, the hosts are now looking to get up and put Mount under pressure, as opposed to allowing him all the time and space that they did in the first half.
58' Azpilicueta boots the ball off the pitch to allow Dier some medical attention. It looks like the centre-back is feeling the impact of blocking an earlier Mount effort inside the hosts' area. After some quick attention, Dier returns to the field and play resumes.
57' Mourinho’s men have won just three of their last 13 Premier League games in which Kane has not featured (D4 L6), including none of their last four (D1 L3). Indeed, one of those last four winless matches without Kane was against Chelsea, a 1-2 defeat in February 2020.
56' Werner and Alderweireld collide as the German striker lunges in with a high boot towards the Belgian's face. After a bit of deliberation, Marriner makes the right decision, awarding Spurs the free-kick, while Werner avoids being booked.
54' CHANCE! Mount spins and turns on the edge of the area, feeding Hudson-Odoi who shoots from the right of goal. Lloris sees the effort all the way, watching it trickle wide of the left-hand post and out of play for a goal-kick.
52' The hosts once again hunt in packs high up the pitch and on this occasion it is Davies who gets penalised for a foul on James. How many times will the Blues win cheap free-kicks before Mourinho's men get it right and make them pay?
51' This half will pose a different challenge to Tuchel and his men. Despite being only five or so minutes into the half, Spurs appear intent to press higher up the pitch and not allow Jorginho and Kovacic dictate play like they did in the opening 45 minutes.
T. Alderweireld
Yellow Card
50' Mount is quick with his feet on the halfway line as he dances around Alderweireld. Perhaps unaware of the cover behind him, the Belgian centre-back hacks at the Chelsea man's heels and rightfully gets booked by Marriner for the challenge.
49' Mendy takes a gamble as he rolls a risky pass into the feet of Jorginho on the edge of the visitors' area. Son and Vinicius press with real intent and the away side get lucky as Marriner awards a soft free-kick for Son's attempts to dispossess Jorginho.
48' Alonso does the sensible thing at the back post, giving away a corner as he sweeps Davies' cross behind. Son swings in the resulting set-piece but the Blues stand firm to head down the pitch.
47' No personnel changes for the hosts during the half-time interval but surely Mourinho will be asking his men to commit forward as opposed to sitting back again. If not, the visitors' four-game unbeaten run against Spurs in the Premier League will only extend further.
46' Both sets of players have returned after half-time and referee Marriner gets this London derby back underway!
Mourinho will have to make some alterations at half-time, with his side rarely venturing into the opposition's half, never mind testing Mendy in goal. The Portuguese manager could look to the likes of Lucas, Lamela or Bale off the bench for some added attacking impetus. Tuchel's half-time message will be simple to his men, asking for more of the same, while requiring them to be more clinical up top.
Tuchel's side started this London derby with real purpose, dictating the early stages of play with the likes of Mount and Hudson-Odoi causing Spurs all sorts of problems. The Blues' hard work eventually paid off, with Jorginho converting a penalty past Lloris after Dier had needlessly fouled Werner to the right of goal. Chelsea go in 1-0 up at the break but, in truth, they could easily have been two or three goals to the good by now.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-1 CHELSEA
45' + 1' There will be two minutes of added time as this London Derby heads towards the half-time whistle. The Blues show no sign of slowing down after a quick start, with Werner and Hudson-Odoi continuing to find space on the flanks, while Mount occupies the two centre-backs in the middle.
45' Hudson-Odoi has acres of space on the left, turning Dier one way then the other before aiming to shoot with his right foot. Alderweireld does well to get round on the cover, supporting his fellow centre-back and blocking Hudson-Odoi's striker before it can trouble Lloris.
43' The visitors have only lost one of their previous 14 Premier League games after opening the scoring (W11 D2), against Wolves in December.
42' WIDE! Son whips in an outswinging free-kick towards the penalty spot and Aurier, the man who won the set-piece, gets in between Christensen and James before heading wide to the right of Mendy's goal.
41' Aurier goes down rather theatrically but does enough to convince Marriner to award a free-kick against Alonso. Spurs' free-kick is in a good position to the right of goal and Son will take.
40' The visitors execute another smart, short set-piece routine but with five Blue shirts in the area, Mount overhits the simplest of crosses out for a goal-kick. Tuchel cuts a frustrated figure on the touchline, however, he will surely be delighted with his side's performance so far.
39' Mount, still ghosting into pockets of space through the middle, is nearly played in by Hudson-Odoi until Sissoko produces a last-ditch sliding tackle to intervene. James and Hudson-Odoi then link-up once more and Dier has no option but to concede a corner on the right.
37' Vinicius, perhaps more out of frustration than aggression, catches Azpilicueta with a stray arm and the Spaniard ends up on the floor, clutching his face. After a brief check that his nose is still intact, Azpilicueta gets play back underway with a free-kick inside his own half.
A. Christensen
Thiago Silva
36' With Silva limping off, Tuchel sends on Christensen to fill the Blues' three-man defence, who rarely have been tested by the hosts as of yet.
34' Silva stretches to cut out a long throughball towards Vinicius, pulling off a remarkable piece of defending to stop the Brazilian striker from progressing. The great defending may have cost the centre-back though, as he goes down clutching his hamstring and it looks like this could be the end of the Brazilian defender's game.
32' Mount spins Alderweireld with a smart turn, shifting the ball to his left before driving towards the area. Unfortunately for the visitors, Mount then drags his left-footed effort well wide of the right-hand post from 20 yards out.
31' Rudiger goes on a rare foray forward through the middle and looks to have created a promising opening until a solid sliding tackle by Bergwijn recovers possession for the hosts.
30' Davies sends a teasing pass down the line for Vinicius, however, Azpilicueta is more than aware of the danger, coming across to intercept in front of the Brazilian. Silva then looks to be under pressure inside his own area but coolly drops his shoulder, sending Vinicius the wrong way before feeding Jorginho.
28' Bergwijn has the opportunity to come deep and progress his side further up the pitch through the middle. The forward's speed looks like it could create a counter-attacking chance for Mourinho's men but Silva comes across to deal with the danger before Vinicius can be played in.
26' Mourinho hasn’t won any of his last six meetings with Chelsea in all competitions (D3 L3). Only against Barcelona (7 between April 2011-January 2012) has he had a longer winless run against an opponent in his managerial career. Jorginho's goal a moment ago could make it seven without a win for the Portuguese manager.
Jorginho
Penalty Goal
24' GOALLLLL! 1-0 CHELSEA! Jorginho gets rid of the skip and instead takes the penalty in normal fashion, smashing it into the left-hand corner. Lloris dives the right way, however, the Italian's penalty is already in the back of the net by the time he gets there.
23' PENALTY TO CHELSEA! Azpilicueta whips an optimistic pass in the channel for Werner. The German races onto it and into the area, with Dier then attempting to slide and recover possession. Spurs' centre-back has two efforts at tackling Werner and on the second try carelessly brings down the Chelsea forward. Marriner wastes no time in pointing to the spot for a penalty to the visitors.
22' Werner persists in drifting out to the left-hand side to isolate himself against right-back Aurier. On this occasion, the German occupies the same wide position but Alonso fails to find him, playing a left-footed pass out of play for a Spurs throw-in.
21' As the game passes the 20th minute, it is the Blues who have set the tempo and dictated the majority of proceedings. Mourinho is sticking to the same game plan the hosts employed against Liverpool, sitting deep and inviting their visitors onto them before attempting to pounce on the counter-attack.
20' Dier dispossesses Werner before playing a lovely, curling pass down the right-hand channel for Vinicius. Spurs' midfield race forwards to support the Brazilian, however, the move breaks down as Ndombele cannot decided whether to cross or shoot, resulting in the midfielder playing straight to Mendy.
18' Ndombele glides towards the edge of the box, looking for the feet of Son near the penalty spot but instead the Frenchman finds the hands of Mendy in the Chelsea goal. After a quick ball change, referee Marriner suggests that play can restart at the feet of the goalkeeper.
16' Mount comes deep, dropping his shoulder to evade Sissoko and then playing towards Hudson-Odoi on the right. The winger looks to have beat Hojbjerg until the Dane pulls back on his shirt to recover possession. Somehow referee Marriner sees it differently, allowing play to go on as Davies looks for options down the left.
14' Lloris and Aurier fail to communicate and the latter is forced into giving away a needless corner on the left. Mount swings it deep towards the head of Silva, whose header is then hooked away before it can challenge the French goalkeeper.
13' Although the Blues appeared to start the game in a 3-4-2-1 formation, with Mount on the right and Hudson-Odoi on the left. It looks like Mount is operating more through the middle, finding pockets of space to link-up play with the midfield as he drifts in between the hosts' defensive lines.
12' Hudson-Odoi hangs on the edge of the area, shooting with his right foot but he does not catch it well and it trickles out for a corner on the left. Mount delivers the subsequent set-piece, however, once again the hosts defend resolutely to head away.
11' Davies receives possession to the left of defence and is immediately closed down by James, forcing the Spurs left-back to give away the ball high up the pitch. He waves his arms at his team-mates as if to suggest he requires more movement. Tuchel and his men have started this game well so far and have dominated the opening exchanges.
10' Last time out, Tuchel became the first Chelsea manager to keep a clean sheet in each of his first two Premier League games in charge since Rafael Benitez in November 2012. The last Blues manager to do so in his first three in the competition was José Mourinho in August 2004.
9' The hosts' defence stand firm to head clear from Chelsea's second set-piece and look set to launch a counter-attack through the likes of Vinicius and Son. Unfortunately for Mourinho's side, the Brazilian striker is perhaps too selfish as he opts to go alone down the middle and Silva dispossesses him.
8' Mount and Kovacic dominate the middle of the park, exchanging a one-two before the Croatian looks for James towards the right. Davies swiftly comes across, lunging in to concede a second corner for the Blues.
6' Son coasts past a few Chelsea tackles before testing Mendy with his left foot from around 25 yards out. The ex-Rennes goalkeeper sees it all the way as he comfortably catches the effort before releasing Alonso on the left.
5' Mount and Alonso attempt a short set-piece routine, eventually finding Werner to shoot to the right of goal. However, none of that will matter as Mount has failed to get back onside from the short corner and the assistant has his flag up on the near side.
4' Hudson-Odoi and Mount combine down the right-hand channel, with the latter's cross being blocked by Davies and out for the first corner of this fixture.
3' The first free-kick of the game goes to the Blues, courtesy of a needless Ndombele foul. Alonso leaves it for Mount to take but his cross is dealt with by the head of Dier inside the box.
2' CLOSE! Azpilicueta goes long immediately and Werner gets in between the two centre-backs, heading towards goal from the centre of the area. Lloris looks like he has it covered all the way as it just drops the wrong side of the right-hand post and out for a goal-kick.
1' Referee Andre Marriner blows his whistle and the away side get this Premier League fixture underway!
The players are making their way out onto the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium pitch and shortly this London derby will kick-off.
Just two of Chelsea’s 17 Premier League managers have lost their first ever London derby in the competition (W9 D6), with Guus Hiddink losing 0-1 at Spurs in March 2009 and Andre Villas-Boas 0-1 at QPR in October 2011.
Tuchel opts for just one alteration to his last starting eleven, with James replacing Abraham. The introduction of James means Hudson-Odoi will move further forward, after occupying a rather unfamiliar right wing-back role recently. Kai Havertz misses out of the squad entirely.
Jose Mourinho makes three changes from the 1-0 loss against Brighton. Bale, Rodon and Sanchez all drop to the bench and are replaced by Aurier, Dier and Vinicius, who will operate up top in the absence of the injured Harry Kane.
SUBS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Tammy Abraham, Emerson, Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic, Andreas Christensen, Ben Chillwell, Hakim Ziyech, N’Golo Kante.
CHELSEA (3-4-2-1): Edouard Mendy; Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta; Reece James, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi; Timo Werner.
SUBS: Lucas Moura, Gareth Bale, Joe Hart, Joe Rodon, Davinson Sanchez, Harry Winks, Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga, Erik Lamela.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Ben Davies, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier; Moussa Sissoko, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Son Heung-Min, Tanguy Ndombele, Steven Bergwijn; Carlos Vinicius.
Since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment, the Blues have collected four points in two games, most recently cruising to a 2-0 victory over Burnley. The hosts, who sit seventh in the Premier League, disappointed in a 1-0 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion last time out.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League fixture between Tottenham and Chelsea.
