After a lacklustre start to the season, Tottenham kicked off 2015 with a result beyond the wildest hopes and dreams of even their most blindly optimistic of fans. After going a goal down thanks to Diego Costa, it looked as though a Chelsea win was all but played out, but whirlwind Harry Kane equalised with a blistering shot from 20 yards at the half hour mark. A goal from Danny Rose and a penalty from Andros Townsend saw Tottenham in dreamland as the half-time whistle blew, with a 2 goal buffer between them and the Premier League leaders.
The goals didn’t stop there as Harry Kane had his eye on a brace and scored within minutes of the second half. Chelsea attacked relentlessly and Eden Hazard’s goal looked like Chelsea might just make a comeback, a hope that was short-lived as Chadli took Tottenham’s goal tally to 5. A late consolation goal from John Terry might not have been enough to impact the game, but it saved Chelsea from dropping below Manchester City on goal difference, so for now, they’ll have to make do with sharing the top spot.
