It could have been a lot more - Alli hails 'great' Tottenham win

  • Eden Hazard- Eden Hazard was visibly frustrated throughout the London derby

A consolation did arrive for Chelsea, through Olivier Giroud in the 85th minute, but it was too little too late for the visitors.

Sarri has taken the league by storm this season and Chelsea - who were being tipped as a side who would challenge for the top four - are now among the favourites to win the Premier League title this season. They do not have a centre-forward capable of scoring 20 goals, but Morata's biggest failing is that he is not prepared to put in the hard work that makes Kane so impressive.

Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten start to the season came to an end as Chelsea were beaten by Tottenham 3-1 at Wembley.

"How we closed down the game was just brilliant, especially the third goal", said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Son Heung-min was a menace to a ramshackle Chelsea defence throughout and brought up his 50th goal in Tottenham colours with a sublime 54th-minute solo effort.

For Liverpool, it was talisman Mohamed Salah yet again who broke the deadlock in the second half against a stoic Watford side.

After 68 minutes, Kane should have sealed the points for Spurs, but his shot from six yards somehow went over, before Alli missed a similar chance soon after.

The Brazilian has never been able to shake off the tag applied by Gary Neville, the former Manchester United captain, in 2011 when he was described as playing like a defender "controlled by a 10-year-old on a PlayStation".

"A lot has been made about Chelsea's impressive start under Maurizio Sarri, but Tottenham are only a point behind them", Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

Tottenham did not let up in the second half and it was 3-0 in the 54th minute, with Son coming in off the flank, beating David Luiz and sliding his shot past Kepa.

Manchester City are seemingly streaking off in pursuit of more records, with Liverpool remorselessly gegenpressing in pursuit.

Dele Alli and Ross Barkley are also set to meet at Wembley, days after teaming up for England and being unknowingly filmed while seemingly having an animated discussion with staff at a hotel in Mayfair.

And our triple-bill will be headlined in some style as Jose Mourinho's United go head-to-head with Unai Emery's Arsenal for the first time this season on December 5.
