Video: Tottenham Hotspur 3 – 1 Chelsea FC [Premier League] Highlights 2018/19
Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were on the scoresheet, while Christian Eriksen was inspired in Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Chelsea.
Tottenham left Maurizio Sarri’s unbeaten record as Chelsea boss in tatters as they stormed to a 3-1 derby win at Wembley.
Dele Alli’s sixth goal in this fixture got Spurs off to a flyer and Harry Kane made it 2-0 in the 16th minute.
Son Heung-min was a menace to a ramshackle Chelsea defence throughout and brought up his 50th goal in Tottenham colours with a sublime 54th-minute solo effort.
Olivier Giroud’s late header from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross could not stop Mauricio Pochettino’s men leapfrogging Chelsea to go third in the Premier League, five points shy of leaders Manchester City on 30 points.
Spurs swarmed all over Chelsea from kick-off and had their reward in the eighth minute when Alli headed Christian Eriksen’s delightful free-kick beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Son then blazed over and Kepa produced a superb save to deny the South Korea international.
The world’s most expensive goalkeeper will look back at events from the 16th minute less favourably as David Luiz squirmed out of the way of Kane’s speculative drive and Kepa remained static as the ball zipped past him.
