Chelsea’s six point lead at the top of the English Premier league has been wiped off on New Year’s Day when a Harry Kane-inspired Tottenham beat them by five goals to three.
According to a BBC sports report, Diego Costa’s tap-in put Chelsea ahead, but Kane’s 20-yard drive levelled and then Danny Rose followed up a rebound.
Kane was tripped by Gary Cahill for an Andros Townsend penalty, with Kane’s turn and shot giving Spurs a fourth.
Eden Hazard’s low shot gave Chelsea hope, but Nacer Chadli’s deflected effort meant John Terry’s late close-range goal was only a consolation.
The Terry goal does, however, mean Chelsea are equal with Manchester City in terms of points, goal difference and goals scored, so the pair are officially classed as joint top of the table.
If that situation remains at the end of the season, they would play-off for the title.
