Marcos Alonso brought out the best from Hugo Lloris with a volley at the start of the second half and the resulting corner-kick ended in the back of the net.

Kante who last featured for the Blues in their 1-1 draw at Anfield was brought on for Mason Mount to score the second goal in the 57th minute.

Tottenham had to do more defending as Chelsea created the better chances as Timo Werner missed two chances after coming on as a substitute.

Rudiger sealed the win in the 92nd minute from a cut-back pass from Werner's short corner-kick to make it 3-0.
