Tottenham Hotspur are still not great after beating Chelsea, says talkSPORT Drivetime host Adrian Durham

Romelu Lukaku reached 238 days without an Old Trafford goal and Maurizio Sarri was frantically munching on cigarettes.

There were wins for Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, while Tottenham produced a big performance to beat Chelsea at Wembley. Arsenal and Everton also picked up important wins but there was more frustration for Manchester United, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Luiz Reveals How Sarri Reacted In The Dressing Room After Spurs Defeat

The pick of the weekend’s results was Spurs’ demolition job of Chelsea which featured a dazzling display from Dele Alli.

The midfielder orchestrated the victory and looks to have turned a corner after being blighted by inconsistency and injuries for much of the season.

Alli’s return to first-team action was a welcome relief for Mauricio Pochettino who has been without his creative mainstay for much of the season.

His tenacious work rate brought the best out of a Blues side mentally destroyed under Jose Mourinho when Antonio Conte took charge and snatched the Boulogne product from the Foxes. Now that Italians gone, the new one at the helm must understand why Kante is reportedly Chelseas highest earner. 

The 22-year-old has already picked up 10 points in Game Week 13 after a goal and assist helped him to an impressive WhoScored rating of 8.45.

Against Tottenham, the Blues had no plan B to combat how Spurs burst out of the gates yet held their shape defensively. A solid back line with the support of Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko and even Christian Eriksen meant that the Lilywhites had the Pensioners covered whenever they tried to break.

The England star will be an important player in what is set to be a jam packed December, with Spurs fighting on three fronts.

A World Cup, FA Cup and two-time Premier League winning defensive midfielder, on a new, improved five-year-contract, forced to play an attacking role? Maurizio Sarri got it woefully wrong against Tottenham Hotspur when it came to his midfield and, most importantly, when it came to NGolo Kante.

Spurs face no less than ten games before the end of the year and Alli is set to be a mainstay throughout.

The goalscoring midfielder will hope to improve on what has been a disappointing campaign so far on Dream Team, picking up just 37 points and his price plummeting to £4.5m.

The 5 foot 6 French wizard is magical in a defensive role, its part of the reason Leicester City were able to pull off their remarkable fairy tale in the 2015-16 season going from 5,000-1 outsiders to champions.

The former MK Dons man has been selected by a modest 4.6% of managers, with many transferring him out during his injury-laden start to the season.

But in a midfield consisting of three central players, all better suited to a deeper position, it was the little Frenchman that was driving through the heart of the pitch, trying to make something happen.

With Alli fully fit once again and looking back to his best, now could be a better time than ever to transfer in the man who racked up 183 points last campaign.

As impressive as Spurs were offensively against Chelsea a monumental defensive effort, fronted by wonderkid Juan Foyth, has caught the attention of the footballing world.

Hazard is magnificent and has been exceptional but if you look at last season with Liverpool, Salah scored so many goals and they became a one-man team as well. They didnt win anything.

The Argentine was given a chance in the first-team after injuries to Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez left a vacant space in the Spurs defence that the 20-year-old was drafted in to fill.

The 27-year-old made his first start since recovering from his injury in a 0-0 draw with Everton in the last round of Premier League fixtures before Novembers international break.

Following a debut to forget in which he gave away two penalties during the 3-2 victory over Wolves and picked up -2 points in Game Week 11, he’s not looked out of place alongside Toby Alderweireld.

The Argentine produced a star man winning performance in Game Week 12 after he kept a clean sheet and netted the winner in a hard-fought 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.

Foyth’s impressive form for Spurs has fast tracked his progress to becoming a full international for Argentina.

Hazard scored seven times in eight games in the Premier League before the Blues forward suffered an injury during a 2-2 draw with Manchester United last month.

The 20-year-old made his debut for his country during the most recent international break after was named Man of the Match after his role in a 2-0 win over Mexico.

The Spurs man has won the trust of Head Coach Lionel Scaloni and is widely tipped to feature more for Argentina in future internationals.

Foyth is somewhat of an unearthed gem on Dream Team this season as less than 1% of managers have wised up to the top six defender.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles since his move to Chelsea FC in a lucrative deal from Ligue 1 side Lille in the 2012 summer transfer window.

The Argentine’s modest price tag of £2.1m makes him an enticing pick for those on the hunt for an affordable in-form defender.

Foyth’s price will no doubt continue to rise throughout the season which makes now more than ever the time to put your faith in youth.

Durham was keen to stress he felt Spurs should have beaten Chelsea and had a warning for Mauricio Pochettinos men

Adrian Durham has warned Tottenham Hotspur he still does not see any improvement in their side, despite ending Chelsea’s unbeaten run.

The Drivetime host admitted he was impressed with the way Spurs dismantled Maurizio Sarri’s men at Wembley on Saturday night, but was not surprised with the result.

Goals from Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Hueng-Min Son meant Olivier Giroud’s effort was no more than a consolation as they condemned the Blues to their first Premier League defeat of the season in a 3-1 loss.

Alli thanks this man for Tottenham win – and it isnt Son or Kane

However, Durham was bullish as ever when asked by Drivetime co-host Matt Holland if he had seen sufficient improvement from Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“It’s lovely; there was great football, we’re all big admirers of Harry Kane and I’ve got nothing negative ever to say about Christian Eriksen. There’s lots to admire about Spurs and Pochettino. It’s a nice win – celebrate it, enjoy it!

“Now Spurs have beaten Chelsea in four of the last five seasons. Let’s make it clear, this isn’t a new thing. They’ve not just broken some king of deadlock, they’ve enjoyed better ins than the one on Saturday; the 5-3 New Year’s Day in 2015 was my personal favourite, I don’t think anybody expected Spurs to win. I don’t think ANYBODY expected Spurs to score five – it was an incredible victory.

“Two seasons ago was probably the most impressive – Dele Alli got a couple of goals, they beat Chelsea 2-0 and it ended Chelsea’s 13-game winning run. Chelsea were going for the record that night actually and they went on to win the title that season.

“So on Saturday, we have to bear in mind as well that [David] Luiz was at his very worst – it was Luiz from the World Cup semi-final of 2014 – Jorginho is slower than the Moose leaving a cake shop, Kepa the keeper is £70million and couldn’t be bothered to dive for Kane’s goal.

“So Chelsea just weren’t at it at all, the manager made some bizarre decisions and it’s very strange this [N’Golo] Kante, Jorginho thing.

“So there’s a lot of stuff going on with Chelsea; yeah they’re unbeaten but a bit fortunate to be unbeaten. Spurs played well, but I say so what? “We all know Chelsea weren’t as good as their unbeaten start suggested, we all knew Spurs could beat Chelsea – nothing is different.

“They’ve got one of the best keepers in the world, one of the best strikers in the world, one of the best No.10s in the world. They needed to add two, maybe three, top-drawer players in the summer to improve and didn’t do that.

Gary Neville raises a valid point about Jorginho after Chelsea lose 3-1 v Tottenham

“That’s one of the key problems for them, that’s why they look like they’re going to go out of the Champions League early.

“Just to sum up, it’s an expected win for Tottenham, it’s not a sign of greatness, it’s no amazing new milestone.
