Pedro and Victor Moses were on the score sheet for Chelsea as the Blues came from a goal down to beat London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Saturday and end their unbeaten start to the season.
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea came into this match with the opportunity to go back to the top of the table after Liverpool and Manchester City had won their respective games to temporarily climb the summit of the Premier League.
But it was Tottenham who had the upper hand in the initial stages of the match as Christian Eriksen scored a stunning long range goal to give his side the lead. With Spurs dominating the proceedings for the better part of the first half though, Chelsea needed someone to step up to get a foothold in the match, and Pedro did just that.
As half-time approached, the Blues’ comeback was on as the Spaniard curled a wonderful effort into the top corner to level things up. Chelsea came out firing off the block in the second half as Pedro, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa heaped pressure on the Tottenham defence in search of their side’s second goal.
That goal came from the boots of Chelsea’s renaissance man Victor Moses, as the Nigerian latched on to Costa’s inviting pass to give his side the lead. After that, Chelsea closed the gates in a solid display to put any thoughts of Tottenham’s continued unbeaten run to bed. Here are the goals from the gripping tie at Stamford Bridge:
