Tottenham ends Chelsea's unbeaten run courtesy Dele Alli's double

England and Tottenham star, Dele Alli scored twice last night to end Chelsea's unbeaten run and to dash the hopes of the Blues in setting a new Premier League record of consecutive wins in the EPL. Chelsea had already managed 13 consecutive victories before the London derby which ended 2-0 in favour of the Spurs.

Tottenham looked sharp and ahead of the Blues during play. Dele scored a header in each half to give the White Hart Lane fans all the joy and 3 points. Chelsea trailed a team by 2 goals for the first time in about 3 months.

Tottenham were the first team to score before Chelsea in a game during their unbeaten run a fixture which they repeated yesterday at the White Hart Lane. Spurs came ahead through Eriksen during the first leg at the Bridge but the high flying Blues responded back with 2 goals to seal all 3 points.

Prior to this match Chelsea had not conceded a goal through an header this season. The home victory to Tottenham put them in 3rd position while the Blues are still 1st with 5 points clear.
