Victor Moses and his Chelsea teammates will spend another weekend on top of the Premier League standings following their comeback 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
The Nigerian international scored the winning goal in the thrilling encounter that took place at Stamford Bridge.
The weekend had initially seen Manchester City go top after their early kickoff win over Burnley. Liverpool then took their turn after posting a 2-0 win over Sunderland but in the end.
It is the Blues that will top the log for the weekend.
As expected, Saturday’s derby clash was a fierce one as Chelsea came into the game on the back of six straight wins, while Spurs were unbeaten in the league.
It took Tottenham Hotspur just 11 minutes to breach the pragmatic Chelsea defence as Christian Eriksen powered in a left foot shot from just outside the area to beat Thibaut Courtois.
The Blues had not conceded a goal in 600 premier league minutes. That saw them win six consecutive matches and go top of the log before this weekend.
Chelsea responded with an equaliser just before half time, and six minutes into the second half, Moses was on hand to score his fourth goal of the season that gave Chelsea all three points.
Chelsea have 31 points from 13 games, one better than Liverpool and Manchester City who are both tied on 30 points.
