Chelsea end their incredible 13-wins-in-row-run at White Hart Lane, where they lost 2-0 tonight against Tottenham, and now the title race is re-opened again.
Dele Alli beat the Blues with two perfect headers, one at 45+2 and one at 54′, with Antonio Conte‘s side that didn’t give the impression to try to give to come-back in the whole match.
Chelsea are, anyway, still top of the Premier League table with 49 points, while Liverpool sit second with 44, Spurs clib to third place with 42 after this win, the same as Manchester City, Arsenal remain fifth with 41 and Manchester United still sit 6th with 39 points.
Eden Hazard had the chance to score the 1-0 just three minutes into the game, but the Belgian shot slightly wide: this was practically the only moment Chelsea seemed to take over Spurs in the game, but soon Pochettino’s side took confidence and closed the Blues in their half of the pitch.
After a couple of wide shots and Courtois‘ miracle on Dier’s header Dele Alli finds the right corner with another header and beat the Belgian keeper, just some seconds before referee Martin Atkinson blows half time.
A deserved score for Pochettino‘s guys, that seemed to approach the game with a better attitude and with a strong will to win.
The same approach that Chelsea had the beginning of the second part, when the Blues tried to come-back and equalise, but Dele Alli’s second perfect header practically closed the game.
Antonio Conte‘s side tried to react but they to have lees motivation and to have no more strength to put the match in the right direction.
Tottenham open again the Premier League title race after this win ending Chelsea impressive run of 13 wins in a row, probably a little revenge after the Blues made them lose the title last May, when Leicester City won the title after the 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.
