Tottenham defeated Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, and it’s a game that Spurs fans will forever remember as it set history for them.

The victory means Spurs have won at Stamford Bridge for the first time in Premier League history, ending a run of 25 visits without a win there in the competition (the most that one team had played on one ground without a single victory).

Chelsea started brightly and got ahead via a first-half goal via an Alvaro Morata header, but a powerful Christian Eriksen volley from outside the box just before the break leveled the scoreline.

Dele Alli then scored a brace in the second half to kill the contest and give Spurs their first ever Premier League win at Stamford Bridge.

The win for Tottenham has opened up an eight point gap to fifth place Chelsea and could cost Chelsea a place in next season’s Champions League.
