Beating Chelsea At Stamford Bridge Is A Great Feeling- Dele Alli

Adjust Comment Print

Christian Eriksen's long-range bullet and Alli's double secured Spurs' 3-1 win in west London, that all-but tied up Tottenham's fourth-place Premier League finish and Champions League qualification.

And it was even more impressive as they came from behind as a huge error from captain Hugo Lloris gifted Alvaro Morata the opening goal.

It would have been understandable for the Tottenham Hotspur boss to hit back at the critics who have constantly questioned, perhaps fairly on some occasions, the Lilywhites record away at the top-six in the Premier League.

The stick often used to beat Pochettino is that for all the progress under the Argentine, Spurs are still to win a trophy in four years under his leadership.

"I don't think he's going to be here next season", he said on the Gary Neville Podcast.

The Dane did find the net in stoppage time and Willy Caballero will be wondering just how.

There appeared little danger when Eriksen gathered the ball around 25 yards out but he unleashed a thunderous, swirving effort that left Caballero stranded.

Hazard has shown his class on numerous occasions for Chelsea this season and there is no doubt he is a top quality player, but too many times he has gone missing in big games where it really matters.

Kane said following the win over Chelsea: "I think Champions League football's a must, and we're in a great position".

With the fast-paced tempo in midfield neither team had much space to work with but Marcos Alonso, who scored twice in the reverse fixture at Wembley this season, had a goal chalked off on 19 minutes as he was marginally offside from an N'Golo Kante cross. The Italian, who won the title in his first season, is facing the risk of being dismissed at the end of his second campaign after an alarming slump to fifth. It was made even worse when Dele made only one 20 minute appearance as a substitute during England's two global friendlies, with some wondering if he was in Gareth Southgate's plans at all.

"With Dele my relationship is always very good, like all the players here in Tottenham", he said. He's a fighter, very competitive. "We must be a bit anxious about this", Conte acknowledged after the game, but maintained his stance that he is "not worried" about his future at the club.

Antonio Conte 'cannot wait to leave Chelsea, ' according to former team-mate and ex-Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli.

"Then the club has to take the decision. But I repeat. I am not anxious about this".
