FULL-TIME Spurs 2-0 Chelsea THE TITLE RACE IS BACK ON!!
...
92' The Lane faithful are in full voice and why wouldn't they be/ This has been a brilliant performance!
...
90' David Luiz heads over from a good cross on right
...
89' Chelsea win a corner! 4 stoppage minutes added on! Is there still time for one last twist?
...
85' Batschuayi has also come for Chelsea. Not much time to improve the game thoguh
...
82' Dele Alli stays down after challenge from Matic a high boot from the Serbian on the youngster
...
80' Chelsea have 10 minutes to save themselves from only their third defeat this season
...
79' Fabregas comes on Kante in another throw of the dice from Conte
...
77' CLOSE FROM ERIKSEN! The free-kick was a bit far out but the Dane has the ability to strike them from there. This time though it was wide of the mark and in any case Courtois had it covered
...
74' Chelsea with all the possession but no way through this white wall yet!
...
70' This particular Chelsea team have been uncharacteristic of the Blues we saw in the last 13 games. Not being able to break down the opposition defence and looking bereft of ideas!
...
68' Great defending from Vertonghen! Pedro flashes a zipping ball across the face of goal and the Belgian was brilliant in repelling the danger!
...
65' Willian comes on for Alonso which is an attacking change. Looks like Pedro is going to left wing back!
...
64' Chelsea look rattled at the moment. Spurs are playing with confidence and verve. The Blues have to get their act together soon or the game might runaway from the very soon
...
59' Well Chelsea have never come from 2 goals down in the Premier League this season! They will have to do it now if they are to extend their lead at the top! Arsenal City and United must be smiling at the result!
...
56' Looks like Spurs are doing their North London rivals a favour so far! Chelsea were aiming for their record but now they will have to score three!
...
Its' the same combination once again! Eriksen picks out Alli again with another brilliant delivery and All leaps above Moses and  Luiz to head home from close range!! Well Well Well!
...
54' DELE ALL SCORES!!! 2-0 SPURS!!!
...
53' Matic takes a shot from range but it's well off target. Spurs are defending deep in their own half which is restricting Chelsea's ability to find space
...
50' This second half ahs gotten off to a flying start!
...
49' HAZARD SHOULD HAVE SCORED!! Another corner causes panic in the Spurs defence and then Alonso heads to Hazard who has time to direct his downward header at the far post but hits the side netting!
...
47 LLORIS SAVES FROM COSTA! AND THEN SPURS CLEAR NERVOUSLY BEHIND FOR A CORNER!
...
Will this be a shift in the title race or will Chelsea come from behind again?
...
We are back underway!
...
HALF TIME Spurs 1-0 Chelsea
...
Eriksen with a peach of a cross that is perfect for Alli and he just guides his header into the top right corner where Courtois cannot reach!! 1-0 Spurs!! We have a game on our hands!
...
46' DELE ALLI SCORESS!!!! 1-0 SPURSS!!
...
45' Two minutes of stoppage time added on
...
44' So far it is a tactical stalemate between the two clubs. The two best defences in the league and it has proven in the first half how tight the game ahs been!
...
40' Wanyama now goes into the book after bringing down Matic
...
39' GREAT SAVE COURTOIS!!! The delivery from Rose is great and Dier gets on the end of it and heads back into the dangerous area and the Blues keeper had to intervene to prevent a tap for a white shirt! First real piece of action for either goalkeeper!
...
38' Cahill commits a silly and cynical foul on Eriksen after losing the ball and now Spurs have a free-kick in Position A2
...
36' GREAT CHANCE FOR COSTA! A back to front move from Chelsea that cuts Spurs open. Hazard from the left-hand side squares it to him in the centre outside the box and the Spaniard has time to shoot but it is way over the bar. His composure escaped him that time!
...
33' Rose has recovered and the game resumes
...
32' Now Rose goes down holding his right foot. It looks like a cut to the ankle
...
31' Rose goes very hard on Moses and he was on the floor with pain but Spurs played on as the referee said it wasn't a foul
...
29' The game is getting more intense now with both sides employing a high press to try and win the ball back higher up the pitch
...
25' Chelsea have a free-kick! Luiz strikes it but it was always rising!
...
24' ERIKSEN JUST WIDE!!! Kante gives the ball away sloppily, the Dane charges towards the Chelsea box and strikes a vicious ball with his right foot that just evades Courtois's far post! Very close!
...
22' OOH A little miscommunication between Costa and Pedro as the through ball from the striker is not read by his Spanish compatriot.
