Spurs, without Dele Alli because of a hamstring strain, made a shaky start in their first game after the memorable midweek win over Real Madrid. He showed he is strong physically and he has good technique.

The Italian swiped back by saying that Chelsea's title win last season was a "miracle" given that he had more or less the same players who had finished 10th the season before, under Mourinho. But while Lukaku has now gone a seventh game in all competitions without scoring, Morata's goal starvation is over. He had clashed with Conte over his early substitution during the Champions League home game with Roma last month.

Azpilicueta's lovely cross found an unmarked Morata who headed beyond David De Gea to put Chelsea one point behind the Red Devils. "We go into the global break with three points and this is very important for us", he added.

'Handshake is not important, it is important to win game, to shake hand could be important not important, but more important is what is on pitch, ' said the Chelsea manager.

Manchester City is the team to catch in the Premier League, and it's getting even more challenging. It was a tough and intense game where Chelsea were able to take their chances to get the three points.

"But we know that eight points in the Premier League is not the same as eight points in the Portuguese league or in the Spanish league or in the German league". It's the only unbeaten team in England, and with an enviable depth of talent on the field and on the bench.
