Tottenham Hotspur finally ended their 28 year Stamford Bridge hoodoo when they beat Chelsea 3-1 today. Victory for Mauricio Pochetinno’s men all but guarantees their place in the top four and ends the hopes of Atonio Conte’s side. Let’s see how the players rated.
Had no chance with Spurs first two goals, but didn’t exactly cover himself in glory for the third.
Excellent ball in the build up to his sides goal, and gave little away defensively.
Looked so composed earlier in the season, but today was further evidence that he is starting to struggle in big games.
Solid for the most part, although he did let Alli run off him too easily for the second.
Covered a huge amount of ground up and down the right flank, and provided the assist for Morata’s goal.
Got through a huge amount of work in the centre of the park, but was eventually over run by a rampant Spurs side in the second half.
Really struggled against the pace and dynamism of the victors midfield. Strangely poor in possession.
Like most of his team-mates excellent in first-half but poor in second period. Should have done a lot better with a close range volleyed chance late on.
Looked a threat with the ball at his feet at times, although this was nowhere near the level of his recent form.
Took his goal well and did a decent job of linking the play, but he faded as the game went on, and should have done better with a couple of half chances in second period.
Chelsea’s star man was neat and tidy in possession, without every really being able to hurt the opposition.
Capped off a shaky start to the game by horribly misjudging the cross for Morata’s opener.
Unable to impact the game as much as usual going forward, but still a decent shift by the England international.
Another excellent display from one of Spurs best players this season. Has really stepped up in Alderweireld’s absence.
A couple of erratic moments aside, a solid showing by the Colombia centre-back.
Had a real job on his hands against the marauding Moses, but stuck to his task well.
Battled away tirelessly in centre of midfield and played a superb through ball for Alli’s first goal.
Excellent, the longer the game went on the more he began to dominate the midfield exchanges.
Brilliant touch and movement all day, a really selfless performance.
Alli 9 (MOTM)
Answered his critics with a match winning brace. His touch and finish for the second goal was top class.
Scored an outrageous 30-yard-strike on the stroke of half-time that changed the complexion of the game. Passing and movement superb throughout.
Struggled when asked to play as a striker in first-half, but grew into the game when moved to the wing in the second period.
Held the ball up well after his introduction, which was exactly what his team needed.
