At last, Chelsea have arrived in this London derby.
For most of the first half at Stamford Bridge, it had been Spurs in the ascendancy with them looking like anything but a team that has just been knocked out of the Champions League.
Surely enough, they made the pressure tell as Christian Eriksen opened the scoring with a sublime strike from outside the area that gave Thibaut Courtois absolutely no chance between the sticks.
Spurs went looking for a second, too, with the home side simply not able to get going – not until the final minutes of the first half.
Chelsea’s Spanish forward Pedro clearly got the memo that this evening’s game was to be a goal of the month contenders fixture as he got the ball on his right foot and whipped it into the net past a flailing, helpless, Hugo Lloris to equalise for the club.
1-1 at half time then and the momentum continued into the second as Victor Moses helped the club into the lead, igniting the Bridge. Fans on Twitter have had plenty to say about the former Barcelona man’s effort…
Pedro stunning turn and finish 1-1, magical. #CHETOT

Better. Quicker, smarter pass from Matic finds Pedro, and you get a little bit more time to be able to pull off something like that.

That turn from Pedro reminded me of Oscar vs Juventus. Not quite the strike but still very, very good.

Not to mention Chelsea’s impressive comeback…
Victor Moses: Great talent that's so far had a career of being shipped out with no future at any of the clubs.
Conte has given him belief.
