Half-time: Tottenham 3 Chelsea 1

Chelsea endured a disastrous end to the first half as they saw their lead at White Hart Lane disappear in dramatic fashion.

Diego Costa had put the Blues ahead n the 19th minute, turning in Oscar’s shot, which came after Eden Hazard had hit the post.

Harry Kane equalised on the half-hour mark as he cut in from the left-hand side, held off the challenge of Oscar and fired in a low shot beyond Thibaut Courtois.

And Chelsea imploded by conceding twice in the dying minutes of the half.

Christian Eriksen took advantage of some space in the final third to slip the ball through to Nacer Chadli, and after he rolled his effort against the post, Danny Rose followed up to power in the rebound.

Then the in-form Kane drew a foul from Gary Cahill inside the box and Andros Townsend slammed home the penalty.

Spurs had suffered a blow when Ryan Mason limped off, just before Costa’s goal, which had come with Chelsea’s first serious attack.

But Tottenham responded with a vibrant 15 minutes that threatens to knock Chelsea off top spot of the Premier League.

Manchester City beat Sunderland earlier in the afternoon an, as things stand, lead the table on goals scored.
