Dele Alli’s double denied Chelsea a record-breaking 14th consecutive victory and fired Tottenham back into the Premier League title race.

HUGO LLORIS: Hardly called into action, but saved well from Diego Costa early in the second half. 7.

KYLE WALKER: A disciplined display from the normally rampaging right-back. Kept Pedro quiet. 7.

DANNY ROSE: The more forward-thinking of Spurs’ full-backs. Diligent defensively, too. 7.

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD: Solid performance from the dependable Belgian, who kept Costa quiet. 7.

JAN VERTONGHEN: Played well in a fine defensive performance for Spurs. 7

ERIC DIER: Seamlessly switched into a defensive back three as he again showed his versatility. 7.

MOUSA DEMBELE: Strong showing in the centre of midfield as Spurs edged Chelsea in a key area of the field. 7.

VICTOR WANYAMA: Showed why Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admires him. Physically imposing and dominant. 8.

HARRY KANE: Workmanlike display from the England striker, who had few opportunities to shine himself. 7.

DELE ALLI: Match-winner and man of the match after two fine headed goals from Christian Eriksen’s crosses. 9.

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN: Made the most of the space he was given with two delightful crosses for Alli’s headers. 8.


HARRY WINKS (for Dembele, 74): Given another taste of a big London derby. 6.

MOUSSA SISSOKO (for Alli, 86): Sent on to solidify the midfield with the match won. 5.

SON HEUNG-MIN (for Kane, 90): Came on in the dying moments. 5.
