Video: Magnificent Dele Alli header gives Spurs half-time lead against Chelsea
The England midfielder beat Thibaut Courtois with an excellent looping header to give Tottenham Hotspur a one-goal advantage going into half-time.
Mauricio Pochettino's side go into the break at White Hart Lane one-nil up thanks to a bit of brilliance from Dele.
The 20-year-old, who now boasts six goals in his last four Premier League games, connected fantastically with Christian Eriksen's cross to give Spurs the lead:

The attacking midfielder's goal came just on the stroke of a fiery half of football, which saw many tackles flying in but not much in the way of chances created.
Alli's header lit up what was becoming an affair low on quality but high on intensity.
The England man gained huge plaudits for his opener:
