After 600 minutes of not conceding a goal, Christian Eriksen scored a stunning strike to put fears into the hearts of the Chelsea fans, in a first half that Spurs completely dominated.

However, Chelsea came from behind to take all 3 points against Spurs, in a London derby game that was titled ‘The battle of the Bridge 2’.

Speaking after the game, Antonio Conte said that the match against Spurs was a big test for the team.

“This was a big test because Tottenham are a really good team with great organisation. They started better than us, with great intensity and a lot of pressure when we had the ball,” said Conte.

“They scored a fantastic goal. Then I liked our reaction a lot. It wasn’t easy to react in that way, with Pedro’s fantastic finish. The goal gave us the right confidence. After the first half we spoke and together we found the right solution to try to win the game.

“In the second half we exploited situations which we didn’t in the first half. When you win this type of game, a special derby, you must be pleased, but from tomorrow it’s important to think about the next game against Man City, another strong team.” Said Conte.
