Tottenham moved eight points clear of Chelsea in the race for the top four after ending their wait for a league win at Stamford Bridge.
Christian Eriksen’s stunning strike and a Dele Alli double delivered Tottenham their first win at Stamford Bridge since 1990 as they dealt Chelsea’s Champions League hopes a hammer blow with a 3-1 Premier League victory.
Tottenham had rarely been in the ascendancy prior to the equaliser but it was the visitors who controlled matters after the restart, and Son Heung-min’s curling effort drew a fine diving save from Caballero, who could do little as Alli completed the turnaround.
Alli controlled Eric Dier’s marvellous ball over the top with a sublime first touch and produced a finish to match as he lifted the ball over Caballero and in off the post.
Four minutes later Alli doubled his tally and Tottenham’s advantage with his first Premier League brace since January 2017.
Eriksen was to the fore as his first-time pass played in Son down the right and, though the South Korea international was twice denied by Caballero, a comedy of errors in the Chelsea defence presented Alli with the chance to slot in from point-blank range.
Chelsea huffed and puffed with little reward as they sought a response before Kane somewhat surprisingly entered the fray despite the away side’s measure of command.
Tottenham’s talisman had no opportunity to mark his comeback with a goal while Lloris enjoyed a similarly quiet end to the game as Spurs finally made some happy memories at Stamford Bridge.
