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.
Outstanding team performance, every player 10/10.
Pochettino got a lot of criticism a few weeks ago, he has answered it in the perfect way

Would have took a draw before kick off, what a result

That was brilliant. A complete team performance. Dele the shining light, but special mentions also for Wanyama, Eriksen & Dier.

The only negative about tonight is it's one less game at White Hart Lane. The rest? Perfect. You can't stop them, the boys from Tottenham..

No words for that performance. To perform like that against a team that has won 13 successive league games is incredible. Superb.

#thfc Was hard to read much into Spurs' 4 wins before this as they're good at beating bad teams. But now we know they're in this title race.

Not only are we third but we push that team from Woolwich out of the top four. 😀#COYS

The most impressive thing about tonight was our temperament. Intense but calm and controlled when it mattered. Wonderful to see. #COYS

Brilliant performance from Tottenham and very professional. Played on the right side of the line they crossed v Chelsea last season.

Alli is what Muller would look like if he had actual elite footballing ability
