The first day of the new season saw Chelsea lose their 3-point lead at the top of the table as they lost to Tottenham.
Harry Kane and the rest of the Tottenham squad proved too much for The Blues to handle, as they knocked 5 past them.
helsea looked like they were going to be in control of the match when Diego Costa tapped in Oscar’s effort, although he looked to be in an offside position.
It was then that Tottenham took control of proceedings and started dictating how the game eventually panned out.
Kane went on a brilliant run, taking on Chelsea players from midfield and drilling in a low shot from outside the box to level at 1-1.
The goal spurred Totteham and they added a second goal minutes to the end of the first half. Rose from a tight angle curled in a goal after the ball had bounced off the post.
And Spurs weren’t finished as Kane won a penalty which Andros Townsend belted past Thibaut Courtois.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team started the second half the way they ended the first and further stretched their lead.
Kane again, picked the ball at the edge of the box, making a spectacular turn and curling in the fourth goal.
Chelsea were stunned and didn’t know what struck them as they looked vulnerable of conceding at every move by Spurs.
However a well worked goal from Chelsea inspired hope of a possible comeback.
Fazio gave away the ball in the box and Chelsea quickly capitalized with Cesc Fabregas cutting the ball for Eden Hazard to guide home for 4-2.
But the hopes were punctured after Spurs added a fifth goal through Nacer Chadli’s effort that deflected off John Terry into the net.
Terry pulled in another goal for Chelsea but it was late for any comeback as they were condemned to a defeat at White Hart Lane.
