Are you still giddy? I’m still giddy.

Good morning, Spurs fans! I don’t know about you, but I’m still basking in the afterglow of yesterday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea. You know, the one that prevented them from achieving a Premier League record win streak. That one.

Let’s say it again, because it’s fun: Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 2-0.

Ahh. Moments to savor. Spurs have now won five consecutive matches and have outscored their opponents 15-3. And one of those barely counts because it was a stupid goal from stupid Younes Kaboul.

The best part about this win is not just that it put us third in the table. It’s not even that it bumped Arsenal down to fifth. It’s that it put us third in the table and Arsenal in fifth for TEN DAYS since this weekend is an FA Cup weekend.

So let’s not try and blow it against Tony Pulis next week.

Here are some links to get you going this morning.

As regular as clockwork, here’s Sky Sports talking about how Dele Alli is now linked with a summer move to Real Madrid. Good luck, Florentino.

Speaking of Madrid, they just blitzed a very good Sevilla team 3-0 in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie.

Terrible Owner™ Massimo Cellino has sold his 50% stake in Leeds United to another Italian businessman. Hopefully new management means a better run Leeds, since they’re a HUGE club that’s been mired in mediocrity for a long time.

I can’t stop laughing: West Ham are ready to make a £15m bid for Jermain Defoe this month.
