  2. Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Chelsea - read the report

    Tottenham celebrate

    Tottenham outplayed Chelsea to inflict the Blues' first Premier League defeat of the season and move above their opponents in the table.

    Mauricio Pochettino's side displayed a terrific performance to go up a place to third, five points behind unbeaten leaders Manchester City, while Chelsea drop down to fourth.

    Spurs deservedly scored two goals in the first 16 minutes through midfielder Dele Alli's flicked header from Christian Eriksen's cross, and Harry Kane firing in a drive from long range.

    Son Heung-min had struck straight at goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga when through on goal, and saw a volley pushed away before scoring a brilliant goal in the second half.

    The South Korean forward picked the ball up on the halfway line, outpaced Jorginho and darted past David Luiz before rolling a cool finish into the net.

    Chelsea did manage to pull a goal back with five minutes remaining through substitute Olivier Giroud's powerful header low into the corner.

  3. 'We have problems'

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea


    Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, speaking to BBC MOTD: "I am disappointed because we played very badly. I think we played very badly in all directions - physically, mentally, technically and tactically.

    "I knew we had some problems and with this performance today it was clear to everybody we have problems to solve.

    "I think in the last three or four matches we have started not really very well."

    Asked about Ross Barkley's positive performance, Sarri added: "No. Today I didn't like anybody."

  4. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    "Today, I did not like anybody," is a pretty scathing verdict from Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri. Full quotes incoming soon.

  5. 'We can do big things'

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC MOTD: "There's no need for me to talk too much. I am so happy, so pleased. I don't need to analyse too much. All credit to the players because they were fantastic.

    "The staff are so happy managing this group of players. We need to be humble and recognise playing like this we can do big things.

    "Our challenge is to keep going and be consistent. That's our challenge for the rest of the season."

  6. Post update

    Time to hear from the two managers. First up - a very happy Mauricio Pochettino.

  7. 'I have to be more clinical'

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham's Son Heung-min, speaking to BBC MOTD: "It's amazing. Our performance was very good and we deserved to win. It's an unbelievable night.

    "We said it before - the first five minutes are so important. We played direct and scored an early goal.

    "Afterwards we created a lot of chances. I need to be more clinical. I'm happy to get three points but I have to learn from this game. I was very sad when I didn't score.

    "I love the fans, I love these team-mates and I enjoy every single moment. I went away a long time and I came back and didn't play very well. I felt very sorry but they supported me and I played good because of them and I'm very grateful for that."

  8. Post update

    After that performance, we need to hear more from that man Son...

  9. 'I never give up'

    Guy: As a Chelsea fan, there is a stat in every game that has been worrying me for a while now - shots on target. Or lack there of.

    Mike: Chelsea not poor. Sarri outclassed by Poch, and Spurs players man for man better than Chelsea.

  11. 'We are a top side'

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham's Dele Alli, speaking to BT Sport: "We knew it was going to be a difficult game and we knew we had to start strongly. We created a lot of chances - maybe on another day if we had been more clinical we could have scored more.

    "Chelsea are a top side and they have made some great signings but we are a top side ourselves. It was a great performance by everyone. At 2-0 we could have sat back but we didn't."

    Arthur: The Chelsea fans tomorrow will claim that because they had 70% of the ball they deserved to win.

    Tofag: Kante was the world best defensive midfielder but right now, he's dropping down the pecking order. Get him back to his position, work something else out for Jorginho, the world needs the tackling Kante back.


    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    Tottenham up to third and they were superb.

    Chelsea, surprisingly off-colour, and there goes their unbeaten Premier League record.

    Another change for Tottenham, with Dele Alli, who has enjoyed a fine game, going off and Harry Winks getting a few minutes.

  18. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    For Chelsea, the worst news from this match could be a potential injury to Eden Hazard. He has not moved much since being crocked by Serge Aurier.

  19. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea

    Barkley, with a fine run down the left wing, it falls to Pedro and he shoots over. That would've made it very, very interesting.
