Chelsea 2 -1 Tottenham: Match Report

Marcos Alonso’s 88th-minute goal gave Chelsea a dramatic victory in Tottenham’s first home league game at Wembley.

Alonso’s brilliant goal put Chelsea ahead but Tottenham dominated much of the game and equalised courtesy of Michy Batshuayi’s late own goal.

However, the champions hit back five minutes later when Alonso netted again, this time running on to Pedro’s pass and smashing a first-time shot under keeper Hugo Lloris.

Alonso had opened the scoring with a 24th-minute free-kick, delightfully lifting the ball over the Spurs wall and beyond Lloris.

The goal came against the run of play, although Alvaro Morata had missed a great chance to give Chelsea an early lead.

Morata, making his first Premier League start, headed wide of the target when found unmarked by Cesar Azpilicueta’s fifth-minute cross.
