Dominic Fifield for The Guardian:
This was the evening Chelsea’s title pursuit, for the first time this season, was made to look fragile. Even unlikely. A side who had prided themselves on an ability to ally thrilling attacking play with stingy defence were picked apart and embarrassed across the capital, wilting in the face of Tottenham Hotspur’s eager energy, bright attacking threat and a homegrown forward who has never played better. Harry Kane will cherish memories of this occasion.
What a game! Match of the season so far. Tottenham looked fresher, hungrier, and better passers. Only Hazard was up to scratch for Chelsea—he was phenomenal, a strange statement about a player in a team that lost by five goals.
For Tottenham Kane was a revelation and tormented Cahill and Matić; Eriksen was his usual butterfly self, fluttering around causing Chelsea’s defence all sorts of trouble; and the whole team pressed with self-belief, never giving Chelsea room to breathe.
