Chelsea 1 Spurs 3

Dele Alli struck twice and Christian Eriksen hit a wonder goal as we ended our Stamford Bridge hoodoo with a key victory in the Premier League on Sunday. Spurs fans were again reminded of our record at Chelsea this week but we tore through that narrative with a second half performance deserving of the victory.

More importantly, the win took us eight points clear of Chelsea in fourth with only seven matches remaining in the Premier League. We’re also back to two points behind Liverpool with a game in hand and we’ve stretched our unbeaten run to 13 matches, our second best sequence in the Premier League era.

Eriksen provided the key moment in first half added time. Chelsea took the lead through Alvaro Morata’s header during their best spell on the half-hour but the great Dane unleashed a beauty that dipped over Willy Caballero to take us into half-time on level terms. The second half was a different story as we took the game by the scruff of the neck with Dele showing what he’s all about on his 100th Premier League appearance.

Two goals in four minutes took us out of reach. The first on 62 minutes, another beauty. Eric Dier picked out Dele’s run between defenders, his first touch was magnificent to bring the ball under control before planting past the advancing Caballero.

The second started with Eriksen’s turn around the corner to release Son. The South Korean darted into the box and was denied by Caballero but kept the ball alive and Dele was on hand to slot home for 3-1, sending the visiting fans into delirium – ’28 years of hurt’ ended in four minutes.
