Tottenham Hotspur successfully ending their long drought of failing to win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as Mauricio Pochettino’s men defeated their London rival 3-1.
Battling for top four seat standings at the end of season, both teams were very determined in getting all three points as they pushed forward vigorously since kick off, triggering an exiting encounter.
It was The Blues though that got off to a better start as Antonio Conte’s boys got themselves in front after 30 minutes through Alvaro Morata’s finish.
The home team continue to push forward in search for a second goal, but their attempts were not successful and instead of scoring, they found themselves conceding an equalizing goal just before half time whistle with Christian Eriksen netting a screamer.
Things continue to get fired up after the break, but Spurs turned things around on 62 minutes when Dele Alli made it 2-1 with his effort, which immediately followed with another goal four minutes later that turned the tie completely in the away team’s favor.
Down 3-1, Chelsea struggling to get things going as they couldn’t get themselves back into the tie and left themselves with nine points behind top four seat, which is occupied by Tottenham.
In other match, Gunners also picked up all three points after beating Stoke City 3-0 with goals coming from Pierre Aubameyang’s brace along with Alexandre Lacazette’s spot kick, all scored in the second half.
For now, that result doesn’t really mean much for Gunners aside from maintaining their sixth place seat as they’re still not close enough to chase for that top four standings.
