Comments:

League position: 5th At the tenth attempt, this was Tottenham Hotspur's first Premier League win against Chelsea since 17 April 2010 when Gareth Bale scored the winning goal. They have now gone 12 games without defeat in the Premier League in the Christmas / New Year periods - more than any other team. The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel ruled on the following: - Tottenham Hotspur’s fifth goal against Chelsea on Thursday 1st January 2015 has been confirmed as a Nacer Chadli goal. (Circular 15 – 9th January 2015)

Comments:

League position: 1st At the end of the first day of 2015, Chelsea led second-placed Manchester City on alphabetical order only. It was the first time in Premier League history that the top two had identical records (Pl 20 W 14 D 4 L 2 F 44 A 19 Pts 46). The last time Chelsea conceded five goals in a Premier League game was a 3-5 loss to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on 29 October 2011. They had not previously conceded more than three goals in a Premier League game under Jose Mourinho. The only previous occassion that the current Chelsea boss had conceded five goals in a game during his managerial career was in Real Madrid's 0-5 defeat at Barcelona in La Liga on 29 November 2010.
