Chelsea fight back to end Spurs' unbeaten run

Chelsea returned to the top of the table after coming from
behind at Stamford Bridge to inflict Tottenham's first Premier
League defeat this season.

Spurs looked on course to recover from their midweek
Champions League exit when Christian Eriksen's superb 11th
minute strike put them in front.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were completely dominant until the
closing seconds of the first half when Pedro curled in a
spectacular right-foot effort to draw Chelsea level.

And Spurs' miserable record at Stamford Bridge was extended
to 30 games without a win - dating back to February 1990 -
after Victor Moses scored what proved to be the winner six
minutes after the restart.

Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen both got
touches on Moses' goal-bound strike but the ball flew in as
Chelsea recorded a seventh league victory in succession.
