EPL: Alli’s double see Spurs breeze past Chelsea

Dele Alli scored a brace as Tottenham came from behind to end their 28-year wait for a first win at Stamford Bridge in brilliant fashion.

Spurs were excellent in their 3-1 defeat of Antonio Conte’s defending champions.

Alvaro Morata put the host ahead, after he headed in a peach of cross from Victor Moses on the half-hour mark.

However, the Blues were unable to hold on to their lead, as Christian Eriksen’s long range effort saw Spurs level on the stroke of half.

The visitors nearly took the lead after the break, but for a wonderful save from Willy Caballero, which denied Son Heung-Min.

However, two goals in the space of four second half minutes turned the game around in favour of Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

First, Alli controlled a lovely long range pass from Eric Dier before finishing superbly to put Spurs ahead for the first time in the game.

Then, after Caballero saved a fierce strike from Son, a goal mouth scramble eschewed, with Alli reacting quickest to score his second and Spurs’ third of the game.

It was Alli’s 100th PL game, and what better way to celebrate it than that excellent performance against the champions.

The win was Spurs’ first at the Bridge in almost three decades, and sees them move within two points of third place Liverpool.

A woeful performance from Conte’s side, who are now eight points behind Spurs, and in danger of missing out on Champions League football, a year after winning the PL.
