GOAL FLASH! Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Chelsea

With Spurs looking dominate and substitutes Son Heung-Min, Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen all on the pitch, a Tottenham victor seemed probable.

Conte sprung a tactical surprise with David Luiz deployed as an extra man in midfield alongside N'Golo Kante and Bakayoko, who unexpectedly played the full 90 minutes despite being short of full fitness after a knee injury.

The absolute star of the match was the Spanish worldwide Marcos Alonso who scored two fantastic goals for the Blues.

The second half continued in the same vein as Spurs continued to dominate.

Alonso scored the victor two minutes from time after Spurs had levelled with eight minutes remaining through an own goal by Michy Batshuayi.

In theory, the question to be asking at that point was whther Chelsea could hold out for a draw.

FW Pedro N/R - Supplied the pass from which Alonso fired home the victor.

Was excellent on Spurs' left flank, keeping the Chelsea defence busy and always offering an outlet for attack.

Foot Locker Earnings Slump Pushes Shares to Multiyear Low

MF Dele Alli, 6 - Created a couple of half chances but was kept quiet for most of the game by some tight marking.

"Chelsea were clinical, they scored in the key moments and for us, the chances we created we found impossible to score".

Chelsea's formation resembled a unusual 3-2-3-1-1, as if Conte had read too much Dan Brown and was going for an impenetrable code.

Willian tried to put the Blues back on the front foot but, after a strong run at the heart of the Spurs backline, was seen off by Davies before Pochettino made a change, bringing on Son Heung-Min for Dier. Yet, it was the worst possible entrance for Chelsea's young Belgian striker as he poked the ball into his own net eight minutes from time, following a wicked Christian Eriksen delivery: 1-1.

Kane caused problems on Sunday afternoon, particularly with some intelligent movement and touches up against left-side centre-back Rudiger, who looked shaky for much of the game. Another effort after the break was deflected wide at a time when Tottenham was already 1-0 down.

Jose Mourinho paid with his job before Christmas in 2015 as a squad in turmoil hovered improbably over the relegation zone but Antonio Conte's side allayed doubts over a similar implosion as they turned in a performance of grit and togetherness at the national stadium. "A big trophy is Premier League or Champions League", he was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

All that meant that the England international's future at Tottenham was thrown into doubt. Antonio Conte's tactics, Pochettino suggested, worked to perfection.

The Chelsea substitute slipped in Alonso down the left and he drilled under Spurs' goalkeeper and in.

Spurs' great record at home comes to an end and Pochettino will be looking for his side to bounce back when Burnley visit next Sunday.
