Premier League: Chelsea beat Spurs, retain top spot; Liverpool are second

Chelsea remained 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.

Liverpool edge Sunderland 2-0, Coutinho injured

Liverpool are unbeaten in their Premier League to 11 games. They beat Sunderland on Saturday but could face a spell without Philippe Coutinho who was taken off on a stretcher at Anfield.

The Brazillian clutched his ankle after a challenge from Didier Ndong late in a first half where Liverpool failed to turn 80% possession into clear chances.

Sunderland threatened briefly in each period, with Steven Pienaar and Duncan Watmore taking heavy touches when presented with openings.

But as Jurgen Klopp’s side continued to press, it was Coutinho’s replacement, Divock Origi, who found the net with what appeared to be a right-foot cross from the left side of the area.
