Chelsea ended Spurs’ unbeaten run with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge to go to the summit of the Premier League, courtesy of goals from Pedro and Victor Moses.
Spurs started the much better of the two, and had the ball in the back of the net just five minutes in, Harry Kane reacting quickest to smash home a loose ball in the box. However, it was ruled out for offside.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side were rewarded for their fast, strong start when they went ahead after eleven minutes. Dele Alli made a menacing run before laying the ball off to Christian Eriksen, who lashed a terrific left-footed effort into the back of the net.
Spurs continued to dominate, but they were to go into the break level when Pedro produced a bit of magic to fire Chelsea back on level terms. The Spaniard picked up the ball on the edge of the box, before curling a delightful effort into the corner.
Chelsea took the lead soon after the break, Diego Costa doing well to break into the box down the left hand side before pulling the ball back for Victor Moses, who saw his shot deflected twice before bulging the net. The win sees Chelsea continue their excellent form and fire them to the top of the Premier League.
One player that constantly caused Spurs problems all evening was Victor Moses. The Nigerian international has found a new level under the management of Antonio Conte, and continued his terrific form here. He constantly looked to stretch the Spurs defence, and did so successfully, working tirelessly in a great performance.
3 interceptions and 5 crosses were just two of the standout statistics from Moses’ game.
Moses has been a key figure alongside Eden Hazard and Diego Costa in the Chelsea team in recent weeks, and here is how fans reacted to his display against Tottenham.
Chelsea is the fantastic team to watch this season. Thanks to Conte’s tactics, return of Luiz and rebirth of Moses.

If this is his actual quality and not just a good form then I’d consider Victor Moses world class. Been amazing this season
