Tottenham 2 – Chelsea 0
It had to happen at some point and at White Hart Lane on Wednesday evening Chelsea’s incredible winning run in the Premier League came to an end.
Dele Alli did the damage for Spurs, with goals either side of half-time, both from delicious crosses by Christian Eriksen.
Chelsea had won their previous 13 matches in the Premier League and even after this loss they remain seven points clear of Tottenham and five in front of second placed Liverpool.
John Terry’s rallying call
The Blues do have some key fixtures coming up, including a visit to champions Leicester, and games against Liverpool and Arsenal, who both beat Chelsea earlier in the campaign.
John Terry was not part of the Chelsea squad for the match at Spurs but he was spotted looking rather glum at White Hart Lane in the latter stages of the encounter.
After the game, Terry posted a picture and lengthy message on Instagram calling for Chelsea to take heart from their run and push on.
Alongside a picture of Chelsea’s 13-game winning run Terry wrote: “Naturally we’re disappointed to lose tonight,but let’s not forget what a great run of games we have been on and the attitude and performances we have shown in these games to put us in this position. We’re still top of the league and that’s where we want to be come the end of May. We will pick ourselves up and go again”.
