Comments:

League position: 3rd Since Mauricio Pochettino became their manager in 2014, Tottenham Hotspur had now won more London derby games in the Premier League than any other team. Spurs avoided losing consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2015. Dele Alli had now scored six goals in his last five games against Chelsea in all competitions. In his 154th appearance in all competitions, Son Heung-min had now scored 50 goals for Spurs.

Comments:

League position: 4th In their 13th game, this was Chelsea's first defeat in this Premier League season. Their club record run of unbeaten games from the start of a top division season remained as 14 in 2014-15. With the exception of the FA Community Shield, this was also their first defeat under manager Maurizio Sarri in all competitions. Prior to this game, the only goal that the Blues had conceded in their five previous away games in this Premier League season was at Newcastle United on 26 August 2018. Olivier Giroud became the second player to score 20 goals as a substitute in the Premier League (24 by Jermain Defoe).
