Full time: Tottenham 2-0 Chelsea

The Premier League takes a huge sigh of relief as Chelsea's winning run is ended by Tottenham, as Dele Alli's double either side of half time does for Antonio Conte's side. There is no record-breaking 14th top flight win, while Spurs leapfrog Arsenal into fourth. The Blues' lead at the top is five points and it at least means the title remains partially up for grabs.

Well that brings an end to our live coverage for another evening. We're back with live coverage of the FA Cup third round this weekend, but until then goodbye.


Four added minutes at White Hart Lane. It won't make much difference.


Heading into the closing minute. No sign of a Chelsea comeback as things stand, though David Luiz does head over a presentable opportunity. Tottenham's fans are buoyant.


Last throw of the dice for Chelsea sees Michy Batshuayi come on for Victor Moses. Dele Alli meanwhile comes off after a knock, and is replaced by Moussa Sissoko.


Dele Alli on the ground after a late challenge, but the damage is very much done for Chelsea and his goals look like ending their 13-match winning run. Unless we see some more late heroics to rival last night's game at the Vitality Stadium.


Diego Costa goes to extreme lengths to try and get Chelsea back in the contest.

Cesc Fabregas coming on for Chelsea. Just over 10 minutes left to continue this unbeaten, if not winning, run. Tottenham look comfortable however.


Moses survives being sent off after tripping Rose, while already on a yellow card. Eriksen with a free-kick for Tottenham and it beats Courtois, but bounces just wide.


And yet we know Arsenal will finish in the top four.


Willian on for Marcos Alonso as Chelsea look to find their way back into this game. Not looking likely as things stand.


Alli soars to double the Spurs lead.

Goal: Tottenham 2-0 Chelsea (Dele Alli)

Chelsea fail to take their chances and Tottenham take full advantage. Christian Eriksen is the provider again and he puts the ball on a plate for Alli, who heads home for the second time tonight. Conte's side's run might be done.


Alli plants a headed past Courtois to give Spurs the lead in the first half.

More pressure from the title favourites. Alonso heads goalwards and it sits up for Eden Hazard, but he can't find the target from six yards out.


Better from Chelsea and twice they come close to levelling inside the first three minutes of the restart. Hugo Lloris keeps out Costa's stinging drive, before Alonso's cross just evades the Premier League's leading marksman.


Players back out for the second half and Chelsea get the game back underway. Just 45 minutes remain for them to continue their winning run.


The omens look good for Tottenham.


Thibaut Courtois is powerless to prevent Alli giving Tottenham the lead.

Half time: Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea

Cagey 45 minutes with the occasionally flashpoint, but it is Tottenham who played to the whistle and they lead at half time through Dele Alli's sixth league goal in four matches. Chelsea have been happy to sit in and take a draw, but they'll be forced to come out in the second half if they want to win a 14th straight top flight game.


Goal: Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea (Dele Alli)

Two added minutes at White Hart Lane but Spurs only need one to take the lead over the league leaders. Christian Eriksen is afford too much room around 25 yards from goal and his dinked cross is headed across goal and beyond Courtois by Dele Alli. He is booked for his celebration but he won't care, as he gives the hosts the advantage.


Interesting point if the wave of ill-discipline continues.


Not exactly a classic.


Victor Wanyama becomes the third player to be booked as he chops down Hazard in full flight. Pretty untidy spell in the game, which is approaching half time.


And it almost leads to the opening goal. Rose goes towards the back post with his delivery and Eric Dier heads across goal, with Courtois force to palm the ball away from danger.
