Premier League

Defeating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge Was a great feeling – Dele Alli



Dele Alli says his side were always confident of overcoming Chelsea, in spite of falling a goal down at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs left the home of their London rivals victorious for the first time in 28 years thanks to a 3-1 comeback win on Sunday afternoon.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder netted twice in the space of 4 second-half minutes to earn the victory after Alvaro Morata’s opener was cancelled out by Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham Hotspur now have an 8-point advantage on Chelsea as they attempt to hold down a place in the top 4, but match winner Alli claims that there’s still work to do over the remaining 6 weeks.

“Anything can happen in the Premier League. We have to make sure we keep getting the points.

“It’s a great feeling to win this game. We have a great side and we believe in ourselves.

“We started the game well but we were just not threatening Chelsea enough. It was a great finish by Christian Eriksen to give us belief. I’m delighted to score two but it’s more important we defended well after going 3-1 up. It was important we stayed solid at the back,” he told Sky Sports News.

Dele Alli marked his 100th Premier League outing by scoring two times in a top-flight game for the first time since January 2017 – also against Chelsea.
