Tuchel’s Chelsea started quickly, with Callum Hudson-Odoi heading wide and Ziyech forcing Hugo Lloris into a smart save in the opening 12 minutes.

Harry Kane thought he had broken the deadlock towards the end of the first half, but the Spurs striker was adjudged to have fouled Silva in the build-up.
