William Shatner praises Tottenham after they finally beat Chelsea at home

Keen watchers of events at Stamford Bridge have noted the club's inability to build on title wins in recent seasons (the Roberto Di Matteo fiasco after the surprise UCL win a case in point) so the club's postseason moves in terms of transfers and other backroom/financial dealings were closely monitored to see if all would remain rosy in West London.

"It ends up becoming a bit messy, press conferences become the boardroom versus manager, it's happened here many, many times".

Still, the revelation that he has any interest in football whatsoever is a fantastic thing in its own right. I'm very exhausted for one season to repeat always the same things. I was fearing another one of those timid away displays against the top six, rather than something more like the Liverpool performance.

That's two Premier League games in a row where we have come from a goal down to win, and that mental strength is something that is coming more and more to the fore as this team matures. 'We must be realistic and understand what our level is, struggling to fight for a Champions League place, ' he said.

"I'm giving - the players are giving - everything".

After the game, the 20-year-old midfielder took to his social media to taunt Chelsea, sharing a photo which shows him cupping his ear to the home fans while celebrating his second goal. He can't stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him.

Antonio Conte insists he is "not worried" about his immediate future at Chelsea but admits they "deserve" to be eight points adrift of the Champions League.

Whilst Spurs certainly have a long way to go in order to match the global reach or historical success of their main capital rivals at the Emirates and Stamford Bridge, the fact that this season looks like being the first time since 1994/1995 that they will finish above both Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League table also feels significant.

He said: "I don't know, I don't know".

However, they are now clear favourites to win the FA Cup this season and in current form it would take a fearless man to bet against them.
