Chelsea's 'great character' key to Wembley win - David Luiz

Chelsea's 'great character' key to Wembley win - David Luiz

Tiemoue Bakayoko says he'll be stronger for his winning Chelsea debut at Tottenham on Sunday.

Bakayoko completed a big-money move from Monaco this summer but was forced to wait to make his debut as he was still recovering from a knee injury that he sustained in France at the end of last season.

"It was a huge result for Chelsea - who still have the league's best player in Eden Hazard to return from injury!" It has been hard because there have been so many comparisons and people talking about Nemanja Matic and the importance that he has to Chelsea.

The defending Premier League champions made the trip to Wembley to take on their bitter London rivals in Tottenham's first top flight game at the home of English football.

'Matic hasn't got the power to pick the ball up in these areas and run 40/50 yards. He worked extremely hard for his team today'. Of course, it wasn't easy, I needed to get the rhythm.




"I got to see it from the first minutes".

However, Bakayoko wasn't the only Chelsea player on show against Tottenham that impressed Redknapp.

And Redknapp believes the Danish defender put in a mature performance against one of the Premier League's deadliest strikers.

"I thought Chelsea might miss Chalobah against Tottenham but Tiemoue Bakayoko was composed and powerful in midfield at Wembley", Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

Spurs got off to the ideal start with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United last weekend, but the same can not be said of their opponents. I had some good moments, but some bad moments too.
