Tottenham Hotspur have finally ended their Stamford Bridge hoodoo this evening, beating Chelsea 3-1 on their own patch for the first time in 28 years.
It was a deserved win for Spurs who scored two wonderful goals through Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli after Alvaro Morata had put the Blues in front on 30 minutes. Dele Alli added his second and his sides third in the 66th minute and the result leaves Tottenham eight points clear of Chelsea in fourth place, seemingly destined for Champions League football next season.
In the Sky Sports studio in the aftermath of the derby, Thierry Henry was effusive in his praise of Spurs but warned that the North London club could face difficulties holding onto their prized assets:
The biggest challenge that they are going to have is to keep their players. That is going to be something very key to them. We went through it at Arsenal as well, instead of adding we were losing big players.
There is progress, [but] that should have been something interesting for Kyle Walker to look forward to. He went to City. What's going to happen to Danny Rose? What's going to happen to Toby Alderweireld?
You might lose, in my eyes, the best left back in the league, Danny Rose. One of the best centre backs [Alderweireld], when he's playing. You need to keep what you have.
The former Arsenal striker also admitted that he is more scared of Mauricio Pochettino's men than Spurs sides of old, saying that they are more focused on their own success now, rather than focusing on how their rivals are doing:
Before in my time Tottenham used to concentrate on other teams, 'what are they doing in Chelsea? what are they doing at Arsenal? what are they doing at Man United?
He's [Pochettino] concentrating on Tottenham. That's the thing that is scaring me a bit.
