Tottenham defender Eric Dier believes ending Chelsea’s winning streak was the perfect revenge after Spurs’ 2-0 win at White Hart Lane.
Chelsea needed one win to match Arsenal’s Premier League record of 14 consecutive wins but a Dele Alli brace ended the side’s brilliant run.
The Blues ended Spurs’ title hopes last season with a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge and brought Tottenham’s unbeaten run at the start of this season to an end with a 2-1 win.
Dier was instrumental in the heart of Spurs’ defence during the win and says it was ‘nice’ to end Chelsea’s winning run to deny them the Premier League record.
‘This game was huge for us for many different reasons,’ said Dier.
‘Because of our history with them last year and this season they stopped out unbeaten run in the Premier League so to stop their winning streak was nice.
‘And in the same time to close the gap on them because there are bigger things in our mind than stopping them.
‘We want to do well for ourselves and hopefully now we can kick on even further.’
