Video: Timo Werner wins entanglement with Dier, leaving Jorginho to score penalty for Chelsea against Spurs

In the 22nd minute of tonight’s mammoth encounter between rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, Spurs gifted Thomas Tuchel’s side the chance to take the lead by conceding a penalty.

Cesar Azpilicueta floated a dangerous ball forward that was in between the paths of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner, the latter ended up darting across to latch onto the ball.

Eric Dier immediately slid down to the ground as Werner was preparing to control the ball, causing the duo to be tangled, where the England international ultimately cut down the striker in a rash move.

Jorginho maintained the penalty duties under Thomas Tuchel despite missing three of his seven for the Blues this season, and he duly repaid that faith.

The midfielder abandoned his hop-skip technique as he charged forward and drilled the ball into the bottom corner, Hugo Lloris wen the right way but couldn’t quite keep the ball out.

Dier has cost Spurs massively with his decision here, whilst Chelsea fans will be delighted to see that Werner has had a positive game-changing impact after a difficult spell since joining in the summer.

    Get Mourinio out of our club, the players don’t like his style of play and it shows on the pitch.
    This side is the worst footballing spurs side I have seen in my lifetime, and I have seen a few bad ones over my 58 years.
    Player thrive on enjoying their football, this spurs side look lost and disinterested.
    Yet again nothing in the middle, does Jose learn anything, we can see it but he just leaves gaping holes in the middle for opposing sides to walk trough us, he just invites teams to batter us.
    Maybe if chelskie put another 3 or 4 on us that will be the end of Jose.
    Just turned off and not watching again till Jose gone.

      You can thank Daniel levy for getting Jose Mourinho its decently not the players some players are good but most off them are labouring on the pitch Oliver skipp is a better midfielder than than harry winks and co its only a matter of time and spurs will lose Harry kane at present i cannot see spurs finish in the top 10 and that is my opinion jose Mourinho will definitely have to go
