Antonio Conte: Wembley atmosphere inspired Chelsea in win Against Tottenham

Antonio Conte revealed that his Chelsea players had been inspired by the prospect of playing at Wembley after Marcos Alonso struck late to stun Tottenham in their first Premier League home match at the national stadium.

Chelsea went into the game as underdogs after losing to Burnley on the opening weekend and were without Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and captain Gary Cahill, but took the lead on 24 minutes when Alonso curled a spectacular free kick into the top corner from 25 yards.

Spurs were finally rewarded for waves of attacking pressure when substitute Michy Batshuayi headed into his own net in the 82nd minute but as they poured forward in search of a winner, Chelsea broke and Alonso fired a low shot underneath Hugo Lloris to win it for the visitors.
