Chelsea left it late to win it at Tottenham, who had been the better side for the majority of the game at Wembley.
The visitors took the lead in first half. Marcos Alonso stepped up for a free-kick and curled the ball over the wall and past the left hand of Hugo Lloris into the top corner.
Spurs huffed and puffed throughout the second half, and the equaliser eventually came. Michy Batshuayi headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own goal.
The momentum was with Tottenham, but Chelsea broke forward and won it through Alonso. His strike somehow found its way past Hugo Lloris at the Frenchman’s near post.
Here’s how Spurs fans reacted on Twitter.
Football is bad and everything is terrible.

Football can be cruel but you can't afford to gift your rivals goals like we did today. Lucky, defensive, whatever. It worked.

I actually thought we played really well today. Kane's August hoodoo and our Wembley hoodoo together was never going to end well.

Nothing from that game suggests we learnt anything from last season at Wembley.

Chelsea did exactly what they needed to after conceding. Breaking up play (again) then hitting hard on the break. That's experience and nous

I'm not worried about Wembley especially. We'll destroy plenty of teams playing like that. #COYS

Wanyama cost us the game. The counter attack was on. Sissoko was on his bike. Absolutely poor awareness from Wanyama. Not good enough.

Thought we played quite well in parts. Wanyama just back from injury and was cooked way before that goal. Hugo's had a shocker. Dele poor.

Death. Taxes. Playing well but getting beat at Wembley by Chelsea.

Today showed me one team fucking terrified of the other, one team wanting to play 'the beautiful game' & only one team to be proud of #COYS
