Tottenham blew the title race wide opening in beating London rivals Chelsea 2-0 on Wednesday evening, with youngster Dele Alli netting two to grant Maurico Pochettino’s men victory and bring to an end Chelsea’s run of 13-match winning streak.

And after the result, which saw Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League table stay at five points, fans of both Tottenham and other clubs in the running took to social media to give their opinions on the game.
Here’s the best of Twitter following the dramatic encounter.

Are Spurs now title contenders?
Lots of talk about Spurs doing teams a favour in title race - biggest favour they did was for themselves. Two points behind 2nd-placed LFC.— Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) January 4, 2017

Tottenham just returned the favor.
I guess what goes around comes around.
Spurs worthy winners?
We had no fear. Nor should we. We were superb. Chelsea were not bad. Tottenham were tenacious. They couldn't cope.— Flav (@Flav_Bateman) January 4, 2017
