FA Cup win would cap brilliant season for Spurs, says Harry Kane

The Premier League champions have failed to match their acheivements of last season.

Alvaro Morata pounced on an error from Hugo Lloris to give Chelsea the lead, only for a wondrous long-range strike from Christian Eriksen to level matters on the stroke of half-time.

Conte looks set to be the third coach of the Roman Abramovich era to lose his job a year after winning the Premier League.

That elusive silverware could still come in the FA Cup this season, but even if it doesn't, a landmark Sunday win was further evidence of their status as the rising side in London.

"Four years ago. the idea was to reduce the distance to the top four".

Pochettino insisted Spurs have achieved "nothing" despite opening up an eight-point gap on rivals Chelsea that all-but cements Tottenham's bid for a fourth-place finish that will secure Champions League qualification.

Tottenham didn't capitulate. And the planned route to goal was clear when Eriksen tried his luck from distance five minutes before halftime. "That was the first target and we've done that", a jovial Pochettino told reporters after the game, clearly ecstatic that his time has finally broken through the proverbial mental sword which lorded over them every time they faced Chelsea, and that too without their star player, Harry Kane, who made a late appearance in the second half.

"Champions League football is a must and we're in a great position", Sky Sports News quotes him as saying.

From the beginning of the 2015/2016 season up until today, Spurs have collected 220 top flight points, which is considerably more than the two other biggest capital clubs Chelsea (199), and Arsenal (197). And for Dele Alli, who scored a brace, his performance shattered the media-driven myth that he's been playing poorly and that his spot in England's World Cup starting XI this summer might be in question. It was made even worse when Dele made only one 20 minute appearance as a substitute during England's two worldwide friendlies, with some wondering if he was in Gareth Southgate's plans at all.

Willy Caballero, deputising for the injured Thibaut Courtois, got a strong hand to the Dane's first warning shot. "He's not going to be affected, but then we have to help him".

The Italian again insisted he is not anxious about his future, demonstrating a laissez-faire attitude to whether he will depart the club in the summer: "I'm not anxious".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte cut a solemn figure on the sidelines, and he found himself referring to numerous same arguments he'd made earlier in the season about his limitations of the London club.

"It's a tough run because you don't always get the ball a lot and sometimes it's a decoy run but.Dele Alli made it for the goal. But, I repeat, I'm not anxious about this".
