Tottenham fans will remember this one for a long, long time — a 2-0 victory in the last ever league meeting with Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

The hosts took the lead just before the break after a fairly equal first half. Dele Alli nodded in Christian Eriksen’s pinpoint cross and Spurs were ahead.

They had another not long after the break, and it was a carbon copy of the first. Alli has now scored two goals in each of his last three appearances.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.



  1. Great result. Echoes of Glory on that wonderful old pitch. This time, however, and unlike the great result against a win-streak City a few months back, we must kick on from it! We are in-form and we must sustain that level to reel in Liverpool and the Blues.
    Oh, the joy that this young squad brings to long standing fans like me, who had so many great days and nights at the Lane back in the mid and late 60s onwards! But remember that we must utilise our squad properly as (on balance) it ain’t as strong as Chelsea’s or City’s. Injuries or suspensions to key players can stall our progress, as it did a few times this season (particularly in the CL). But if luck favours us, we can have a sweet sweet last sason at our wonderful old ground!
