Chelsea had won 13 in a row coming into tonight’s clash and would have broken the record for consecutive wins in the same season with another three points.

But Alli scored twice, both times from Christian Eriksen crosses, in either half to move Tottenham up into third place.

It was Alli’s fifth and sixth goals in a week and his sixth and seventh in four games.

Eden Hazard wasted an early chance with the scores level after beating the offside trap when he shot wide with a tame effort.

Diego Costa then reacted furiously when Pedro missed a pass into him and the two exchanged words on and off for the next few minutes.

Alli’s first came as Eriksen drifted towards the box and delivered in between Cesar Azpilicueta and Victor Moses.

Alli met the cross and powered beyond Thibaut Courtois on the stroke of half time.

Hazard missed another chance with a ducked header in the six-yard box at the start of the second period.

Chelsea appealed for a penalty as Moses went down on the edge of the area but the referee made the right decision to turn it away.

Alli doubled Tottenham’s lead after 54 minutes with a similar header from another Eriksen cross to stun the visiting fans in north London.

And from there Tottenham controlled the game and ended Chelsea’s winning run at 13.
