Alli blows race open
Spurs up to third as double header ends Chelsea's run
Chelsea's all-conquering winning run shuddered to a halt at White Hart Lane when Dele Alli threw the title race back into the melting pot with a deadly headed double.
Alli's goals on either side of half-time put a cap on Chelsea's streak at 13 and kick-started Spurs' title challenge but the big winner on the night was Jurgen Klopp.
Spurs move into third place but Klopp will be delighted that Liverpool's slip-up against Sunderland is now a point gained on Chelsea rather than two lost.
Alli believes Spurs made a big statement of intent with this win.
"We knew how big a game it was for us and the fans," he said.
"There was a lot went into this game. We're happy to stay under the radar the same as we did last season but this was a big statement."
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte accepted the defeat with grace.
"We knew this could happen. I think I saw a game with a good balance. They scored at the end of the first half and got the second during our best moments.
"It is a pity to stop this run but Tottenham is a really strong team and for sure is one of the teams that can fight for the title until the end.
"We are top of the table because we are working a lot. After 13 in a row it is difficult to accept defeat but this is football and we must."
