Everything Dele Alli touches is turning into gold right now.
The 20-year-old Tottenham midfielder inspired his side to a 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Wednesday at White Hart Lane, a pair of almost identical headers ending Chelsea’s 13-match winning streak and giving the rest of the league hope that there will indeed be a title race this season.

In netting a brace for a third consecutive contest – following two-goal displays against Southampton and Watford – the young Englishman joined an exclusive list in Spurs history.
Alli, who has now scored more goals (20) than any other midfielder in the Premier League since the start of last season, also equalled a personal milestone on Wednesday.
