White Hart Lane experienced its first defeat in the hands of the English premier league leaders as the Conte led team came from behind to inflict the first defeat on the Spurs team this season.

Chelsea FC are suddenly looking like the real deal this season after coming against all odds to defeat a Totthenham team who is yet to lose in the league this season. The Blues were shocked very early in the game by the Spurs team after a well struck shot by Ericksen found its way to the back of Thibaut Coutious' goal post.

But, the Blue giants came back into the game with a well-placed effort from the top goal scorer of the league this season “Diego Goal” – a goal which leveled things up and made the game come to a balance, ensuring that the Chelsea FC team goes into the dressing room unbeaten for the sixth time in the English premier league.

EPL stat - Diego Costa has scored at least a goal in the first half in the last two games.

It didn’t end there, the player who was not given a chance to prove himself during the reign of Jose Mourinho as coach came to the limelight once again, proving himself to be one of the most dangerous winger in the EPL as he struck a well-connected shot to beat Spurs goalie in the 51st minute to ensure that white hart lane suffered its first defeat this season.

Tottenham Hotspur woes?

Spurs have had a bad outing this week. In the wake of a disappointing early Champions league exit where they were dumped out of Europe’s elite football competition (UEFA Champions League) by Monaco on Wednesday losing by 2 goals to nothing.

They still could not hold-on to the 12-game unbeaten run against Chelsea FC losing again by two goals to one.

After the game, Spurs boss, Pochettino expressed confidence amidst his disappointments “… I think there is nothing wrong. We [Tottenham] are still in a good position in the Premier League”
