Tottenham moved a big step closer to securing their place in next season’s Champions League after a thrilling 3-1 London derby victory away to Chelsea.

The Blues started strongly and deservedly took the lead on the half-hour mark, with Alvaro Morata heading home from a Victor Moses centre after a flappy mess from Hugo Lloris.

However, just before the break, Tottenham got themselves back into the game, via an outstanding long-range strike from Christian Eriksen, which rocketed back Willy Caballero in the Chelsea goal.

While the hosts were the better side in the the first half, Spurs were much improved after the break.

The Lilywhites would ultimately seal the victory in a four-minute period just after the hour-mark, with Dele Alli netting a brace.

The first of  those goals came after an exquisite touch from an equally deft Eric Dier pass, with Alli then blasting in off the post.

Within four minutes, Ali would strike again, this time from close-range after a goalmouth scramble.

Chelsea couldn’t get themselves back into the game, thus ending a 27-game unbeaten home league run against Spurs which dates back to 1990.

The defeat all but ends the Blues’ hopes of securing a top-four berth this season, with eight points separating the west Londoners from fourth-placed Tottenham.

On the other hand, Mauricio Pochettino and co. look set for another Champions League campaign, although some sort of actual trophy wouldn’t go amiss for the Lilywhites.
