Chelsea inflict Wembley misery on Tottenham Hotsour as Marcos Alonso fires double

And it was Tottenham's profligacy in front of goal - the hosts had 18 shots in total, six of which were on target - that cost them the three points, according to Pochettino. Broke the play up wonderfully in the second half and created the winner by robbing Victor Wanyama deep in Spurs' half.

Chelsea scored when Alonso guided a free-kick into the top corner of Lloris's goal, a strike which came against the run of play.

Vertonghen could have been sent off for a tackle on Victor Moses in the second half, but other than that he hardly put a foot wrong - despite ending up on the losing side.

A Marcos Alonso double was enough to mean Michy Batshuayi's own goal in the 82nd minute mattered for little in the end.

In theory, the question to be asking at that point was whther Chelsea could hold out for a draw.

After clawing their way back into the game with a late equaliser, Spurs made two uncharacteristic errors in defence while pressing for the victor.

Bakayoko is more mobile than Matic and was a useful midfield ball-carrier when Chelsea, starved of possession for long periods on Sunday, transitioned from defence to attack.

The champions have won one of our past 11 Premier League visits to Tottenham.

Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, stuck with the same starting eleven that had won so convincingly at Newcastle United on the open day.

There was still time for Eriksen to show his class with a wonderful free kick delivery into the area, but no Tottenham player was able to get a crucial touch.

In a match of great significance to both teams, Spurs enjoyed the better opening 25 minutes as the men in white passed the ball with confidence around the Chelsea half.

Chelsea's task would have been made much easier had referee Anthony Taylor shown a red card to Eric Dier rather than a yellow for a first half foul that was strikingly similar to the one that saw Gary Cahill dismissed against Burnley.

- Since the start of last season, no Chelsea player has scored more Premier League braces than Alonso (2, level with Diego Costa and Eden Hazard). Another effort after the break was deflected wide at a time when Tottenham was already 1-0 down. The players were clearly well-drilled and were constantly diligent in their efforts, pressing when possible and dropping off when required.

Spurs will have a great opportunity to rebound at England's national stadium.

Pedro and Batshuayi came on before Sissoko was brought on by Pochettino in place of Davies with 10 minutes left.

Eriksen delivered a teasing cross from a free kick on the left and Batshuayi got his header all wrong and diverted past Courtois. "A big trophy is Premier League or Champions League", he was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Conte went insane on the touchline and Pochettino showed his frustration, as his side had throw it away.

"Antonio was the Juventus coach, but for many reasons he then left Juve".
