Hat-trick hero Nicolas Jackson got three late goals to win the match 4-1 after Spurs went down to nine men in a game reminiscent of the 2016 epic nicknamed 'the Battle of Stamford Bridge'.
Nizaar Kinsella was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to rate the Chelsea players.
Robert Sanchez - 6
His kicking again wasn't at the highest level but the red cards stopped Spurs' press. He could do little about the goal but made a big save from Heung-min Son late on.
Reece James - 7
Struggled with Brennan Johnson initially as he got up to speed but his attacking play was exceptional.
Axel Disasi - 6
Not the most accomplished display in possession.
Thiago Silva - 6
A calming presence amid the chaos.
Levi Colwill - 5
Brought Chelsea's needle and was involved in a host of aggravating incidents. Maybe went a little too far and was took off at half-time.
Enzo Fernandez - 7
Won Chelsea's penalty and fought hard in a warring midfield battle but his long-range shots were wasteful.
Moises Caicedo - 7
Unlucky to see his left-foot strike ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside in the build-up. Dominated for much of the match in midfield apart from a moment of sloppiness not tracking James Maddison for the Spurs goal.
Conor Gallagher - 6
An unremarkable display, not getting involved in any of the ugliness, just doing the basics right.
Cole Palmer - 7
Stroked his early penalty home off the post with confidence and linked well with James.
Nicolas Jackson - 8
A very busy night for the striker, who scored in the 75th minute by tapping in Sterling's cross, then sealed the victory in stoppage time with two more goals.
He had already scored earlier, only for VAR to rule it out for offside. It must be said, he also missed some easy chances before he won it.
Raheem Sterling - 9
Sterling was the first out-ball every time Chelsea broke Tottenham's press and he set up the key second goal. He had already scored in the first half but the ball unluckily deflected onto his arm and was ruled out by VAR.
Marc Cucurella - 6
Missed a one-on-one with Vicario, but who hadn't by that point?
Mykhailo Mudryk - 5
This should have been his game against nine men but he couldn't use his pace in the way Mauricio Pochettino will have envisaged.
Malo Gusto - 5
Quite a poor late cameo, giving away a free-kick which Spurs almost scored from and failing to find Jackson with a simple crossing chance.
Lesley Ugochukwu - N/A
