Chelsea’s Victor Moses scored six minutes into the second half to lift his club over an unbeaten Tottenham Hotspur side on Saturday. The Eagles forward had lashed onto a pass from Diego Costa to send his team back on top of the league.
Christian Eriksen put Spurs ahead with an excellent long-range strike, his first top-flight goal of the season. Dele Alli was given space to drift inside and he found Eriksen, who took one touch before firing a superb left-footed strike past Thibaut Courtois from outside the area – the first top-flight goal conceded by Chelsea in 601 minutes.
A moment of brilliance from Pedro got Chelsea level in the final minute of the first-half, with the winger collecting Nemanja Matic’s pass, turning sharply and sending a magnificent curling effort past Lloris from the edge of the box for his third goal in five league games. Pedro’s equaliser had come against the run of play, but the momentum was all with Chelsea early in the second half, with Moses striking six minutes after the restart.
