Spurs 2 Chelsea 1

Same sort of game as the semi final last year all the possession 67.5%. 18 shots to their 9 and they had only 2 on target yet again lost the game.

Marcos Alonso’s brace stole the points in an intense London derby against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday. We marked our first home league outing at the national stadium with a bright, energetic performance, pushing Chelsea back and restricting them to only a handful of chances throughout the 90 minutes.

The problem was, the Blues took two of them. Left-back Alonso curled home an unstoppable 25-yard free-kick in the first half and despite it being attack-versus-defence for most of the second period in our pursuit of a way back into the game, it wasn’t to be against our bitter rivals.

Our relentless pressure forced substitute Michy Batshuayi to head Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own net eight minutes from time, Wembley erupting in celebration of a thoroughly-deserved equaliser.

But the noise was silenced and the fans’ flags, also on show to stunning effect before the game, disappeared from view when possession was turned over in midfield and substitute Pedro laid in Alonso to blast past Hugo Lloris at his near post to seal a 2-1 win for the visitors with just over two minutes remaining.
