The Debrief: Mount’s universal impact and another defensive show of strength secure significant win

Toni Rudiger won seven of his eight aerial duels, more than any other player on the pitch, and all three of his attempted tackles. Between the trio of Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, they won 16 duels in the air, a key ingredient to three points in east London for any side.

Another clean sheet took the Blues to 10 in 14 Premier League matches under Tuchel, equalling the quickest a manager has reached that milestone in the competition’s history. 

It was also our 29th shutout of the campaign, the most of any side in Europe’s big five leagues this term.
