Spurs midfielder Dele Alli has hit back at suggestions that his attitude may jeopardise his chances of a starting spot with the Three Lions at this summer's World Cup, with the England worldwide insisting that he has nothing to prove.

Conte said that the players were giving their everything, however, it was not enough to match the expectations and goals put forward by the club and the fans. He said: "A lot of clubs, including Chelsea, will be very envious of what Tottenham have got and the calibre of their team, Dominating London, that's a big step for Tottenham".

However, Caballero was helpless when Eriksen's fierce dipping effort clipped the bar on its way past him in first-half stoppage time.

"The game that we play on Sunday, we need to be fresh and we need all our energy to win".

"The only way to do that is doing what he did today". "It's been a tough period for him, but I like his talent, his character". "There's pressure on their shoulders".

Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso described this London derby as a "must-win game" beforehand and it was hard to disagree, given the consequences for Champions League qualification.

In the time it took Tottenham Hotspur to register their first league win at Stamford Bridge since 1990, Chelsea had won 22 trophies.

"I think we've got to try and win the FA Cup". Now is the moment to try and continue to work with great professionalism.

"It's hard... I don't know".

Odds on White Easter with widespread alerts in force for snow disruption
SCOTS hoping to make the most of the Easter weekend could face travel chaos as the Met Office issued new yellow warnings for snow. The forecast for Monday remains uncertain but more snow could be on the way to the United Kingdom at the start of next week.

And it was even more impressive as they came from behind after a huge error from captain Hugo Lloris gifted Alvaro Morata the opening goal.

Manchester City looked every inch champions elect as the leaders moved within touching distance of the title.

"I've never anxious much about what people think", Dele told Sky Sports after the match.

No matter what people say, winning away at a top-six rival had held Tottenham back over the last two seasons in particular.

Former Chelsea manager and a friend to the current head coach, Gianluca Villa, has claimed that Antonio Conte "can't wait to leave" the club.

"[We do not need] to control them in their rooms, because surely we are going to be in the hotel waiting for the game, but we cannot put cameras [in their rooms] and see what they are doing".

"Champions League football is a must and we're in a great position", Kane said.

SPURS: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier (Wanyama, 81 mins), Dembele, Lamela (Sissoko, 88 mins), Alli, Eriksen, Son (Kane, 73 mins).
