The Nigerian-born England international is enjoying his spell after scoring today against Chelsea to complete a double treble in three games for the North London side.

Bami-Dele Alli’s two goals either side of the halves halt Chelsea’s record-equalling Premier League winning run of 13 matches.

Alli scored twice for the third Spurs game in succession, converting Christian Eriksen crosses either side of half-time as Antonio Conte’s league leaders tasted defeat for the first time since September.

Tottenham are up to third place, above Manchester City on goal difference, and now within seven points of Conte’s men, who lead Liverpool by five.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are enjoying a purple patch of their own, having won five from five since losing at Manchester United on December 11 and scoring 15 times in the process.

Chelsea’s rampant march meanwhile had previously been tested as they fell behind to Spurs at Stamford Bridge and City at the Etihad Stadium, but the excellent Alli ensured there would be no respite on this occasion.
