Without talisman Harry Kane for the big game, the hosts offered absolutely nothing going forward and were hopeless at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
It was to be expected that they would have a lot less off the ball against Thomas Tuchel's side but Spurs were not even a threat on the counter attack and Heung-Min Son, their outlet and most dangerous player, was largely anonymous in the opening 45 minutes.
In fact, in the first 30 minutes, Spurs touched the ball in the Chelsea box on just two occasions.
There was no build-up, pressing or intensity from Spurs, with everything about their display extremely flat.
Having dominated the opening proceedings with ease, Chelsea went 1-0 up through a Jorginho penalty after Eric Dier clumsily fouled Timo Werner and fans did not hold back with their thoughts on Mourinho - with many feeling his style of play is outdated:

On 20 minutes and a few seconds Chelsea had the ball on the halfway line.- Richard Cracknell (@MrCracknell) February 4, 2021
3 Spurs midfielders. Not one of them went to press or show any intent or commitment.
They're either not playing for him. Or if they are doing as they're told, then thats not a style of football for me
imagine spurs without pre season and their early season form loooool- Philip (@UnitedCalypso_) February 4, 2021

Spurs have been an absolute joke here in this first 25 minutes. Horribly bad.- Jade Manasse (@Jade_Manasse) February 4, 2021
Spurs haven't changed much from how they played earlier on in the season. The difference is every single shot Son and Kane take aren't going in anymore.- g (@1GAFC) February 4, 2021
