Defending champions Chelsea were comprehensively toppled over by resurging Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. The final scoreline was 3-1.

Even though Spurs were without their striker Harry Kane, who was unfit to start the game, they still had enough firepower to showcase how good they really are. With this win, they also snapped their 28-year wait of beating Chelsea at their home.

The game had an interesting start with Chelsea taking the lead through Alvaro Morata. Spurs’ keeper Hugo Lloris made a huge error made a huge error when the Victor Moses crossed in the ball. The French keeper miss judged the flight and the Spanish striker was at the right place at the right time to capitalize.

Christan Eriksen's wonder strike levelled in first-half stoppage time before Alli took centre stage to end a barren run by his standards with two smart finishes just after the hour mark.

Spurs are fourth in the table, trailing third-placed Liverpool by two points, having played a game less.

This loss has put the already under-fire manager under more pressure and he could be seen leaving the club this summer.

Earlier, Manchester City resumed normal service after a two-week break from Premier League football by dispatching Everton by 3-1 on Saturday. Liverpool survived Crystal Palace scare thanks to Mohammed Salah who extended his goal-tally for this year to 29.

Meanwhile, Manchester United cemented their spot as the second placed team after City, thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean who came from Arsenal to United this January has been lacklustre but finally turned up against Swansea City as he scored one and made the other for his new club on Saturday.
