That just about wraps up IBTimes UK's live coverage of Tottenham vs Chelsea, thanks for following along.

We'll be back tomorrow night to bring you all the action from the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City host Everton at 20.00 BST.

Until then, goodbye.


Tottenham are back at Wembley next Sunday and will be confident of getting a result against Burnley.

Chelsea, meanwhile, host Everton in their next Premier League outing.


Time to catch your breath after the most dramatic of finishes to the first Premier League fixture ever to be held at Wembley.

Alonso will be the toast of west London after his brace helps the champions banish memories of that awful opening day defeat and get their latest title defence off and running.

After weeks of negative headlines, they demonstrated real togetherness and it would take a brave man to dismiss any team managed by someone as strong-willed and wily as Conte.

For unlucky Spurs, it's a game they feel they probably should have won and a result that perpetuates the notion that they are incapable of getting results at their new temporary home.

Lloris will have nightmares about the passage of play that led to the winner, although the team's overall performance was far from substandard.



Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea


Pochettino rolls the dice one last time. Striker Vincent Janssen replaces Trippier.


Four minutes of added time for Tottenham to find another equaliser.


Stunning late drama at Wembley.

After Batshuayi is denied a penalty following some strong defending from Dembele, Lloris throws the ball out to Wanyama, who is immediately caught in possession by Luiz.

Chelsea pour forward and Pedro tees up fellow Spaniard Alonso, who fires a low shot underneath Lloris and sparks wild scenes of jubilation among those 3,000 travelling supporters.

Really poor, costly goalkeeping from the Spurs captain. He surely should have saved that with his legs instead of trying to use his hands.

Hugo Lloris


Goal: Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea (Marcos Alonso)


Commanding goalkeeping from Courtois, who relieves the pressure on his team with a confident catch.


Wembley is rocking now as Bakayoko clumsily concedes another free-kick for a slight trip on Eriksen.

Christensen clears behind for a corner...


A disaster for Batshuayi as the substitute heads a searching Eriksen free-kick into his own net just four minutes after entering the fray.

Debutant Bakayoko had been penalised for a needless foul on Alli.

Michy Batshuayi


Goal: Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (Michy Batshuayi OG)


Sissoko on now for Spurs. Davies heads to the bench.


After waiting on the touchline for several minutes, Pedro, complete with Zorro-esque face mask, finally comes on for the impressive Willian.

Morata also makes way for Batshuayi.


Back come Spurs, with Alonso blocking Eriksen's cross and Christensen charging down a hopeful strike from Kane.

Dembele holds off Alonso during an imposing run and tries to thread a clever low pass through for Kane, who is just unable to meet it.


Willian, sensing that he is about to be replaced by Pedro, sells a step over and cracks a long-range shot against the foot of the post.

That would surely have been game over.


A vicious effort from Moses flies over the crossbar. That was slightly selfish from the wing-back, who may have been better off laying the ball inside.


Willian spearheads another Chelsea counter-attack and finds Morata. The Spaniard looks to cut inside Alderweireld and onto his right foot but sees his effort deflected behind by Vertonghen.



Pochettino's first change of the afternoon sees Heung-Min Son replace Dier.

Wanyama horribly miscues a long-range shot after decent build-up play from Tottenham.


Chelsea begin to come forward at last as Trippier heads away a searching cross from Moses.

Willian then dances his way through midfield before overrunning the ball and being dispossessed by Davies, who looks to have picked up another knock in the process.


Another Spurs corner comes to nothing. They still trail 1-0 with 25 minutes remaining.

Is Pochettino on course to lose his first London derby on "home" soil?


Spurs appeals for handball and a penalty are swiftly waved away by referee Taylor.

Kante fouls a showboating Alli in a dangerous area, but Chelsea clear their lines at the front post.


A great run and touch from Trippier allows him to divert a brilliant lofted pass into the box. However, Kane is slow to react and Azpilicueta gets across to clear the danger.

Conte is on the touchline barking out instructions to his embattled charges. He needs them to gain some sort of a foothold in this one-sided second half.
