Tuchel and Klopp – together at the top of England!
After the 3-0 derby success of the “Blues” over Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool are together at the top of the Premier League table with the same point and goal.
Tuchel leaders for the first time!
This is the first time that Tuchel has headed the Premier League since he took office in Chelsea.
The Chelsea coach has to rebuild after the work victory over Zenit St. Petersburg (1-0) in the Champions League. In goal, Kepa represents the ailing Mendy – probably the one who has the most expensive goalkeeper in the world (80 million transfer fee) on the bench.
The first half is fast-paced, but goal scenes are rather in short supply. Lukaku and Mount negligently spoil the best chance after a counterattack (15th minute).
Shortly after the restart, Thiago Silva’s hour strikes. The Chelsea oldie is spot on after a corner from Alonso and nods to the lead – 1-0 Chelsea!
Then the Tuchel team pushes for the decision, but Alonso (53rd) fails on the Spurs defense. Kanté does better (57th). His shot is deflected by Dier untenable for Lloris to 2-0. National player Antonio Rüdiger (90 + 2) made the deserved 3-0 on the basis of Timo Werner.
High tension in England! Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United – all three teams have 13 points after five matchdays. Defending champion ManCity now has to wait for rivals to slip up after the mistake against Southampton (0-0).
