Watch: Son Skewers Chelsea With Scoring Run From Halfway Line

Tottenham are putting Chelsea to the sword at Wembley Stadium.

It’s been a calamitous game for the Blues, who needed a win to keep pace with the top two of Liverpool and Manchester City. But it’s the home side that look certain to go third in the Premier League table this evening.

Maurizio Sarri’s side are unbeaten this season, but they were left with a mammoth task early on to maintain that record.

Dele Alli headed in a Christian Eriksen free kick after just eight minutes to delight the home supporters, and within the first quarter of an hour they doubled their lead.

Some of the trends of Chelsea’s season were evident here – the much-maligned Alvaro Morata has been flagged offside numerous times, but another one in David Luiz’s questionable form came back to bite the visitors.

Harry Kane struck from long range, with the Brazilian pretty much dodging the ball as it flew into the net.

The embarrassment continued just before the hour mark.

Heung-Min Son went on a run from the halfway line, powering past Jorginho in the process. After stepping past a feeble challenge from Luiz, the Korean fired home into the far corner to make sure of the three points.

Spurs have suffered just one league defeat since September, and this victory coupled with results elsewhere from the likes of Manchester United will further bolster their top four credentials.
