Maurizio Sarri’s undefeated start to life at Chelsea came to an end in devastating fashion at Wembley on Saturday evening as they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham Hotspur.
Dele Alli got the party started with his sixth goal in his last five games against the Blues on eight minutes and that was doubled shortly afterwards.
Captain Harry Kane got in on the act as he took his tally to 25 goals in games against Spurs’ London rivals by beating Kepa, who prevented the margin of defeat being even greater.
In the second half, Son Heung-min did make it three when he blitzed past Jorginho and David Luiz on the right wing before bursting into the box to slide the ball home.
Olivier Giroud did come off the bench to grab a consolation for the visitors, but it wasn’t enough to prevent his side falling behind Spurs in the table as Mauricio Pochettino‘s men moved up to third.
It means that only Liverpool and Manchester City remain as the division’s undefeated sides this season.
