Petr Cech has hailed the fighting spirit of his Chelsea teammates, after the goalkeeper watched his side come from behind to win 4-2 against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

Goals from William Gallas and Jermain Defoe put Spurs in-front in the second-half after Gary Cahill’s brilliant 17th minute opener, but a brace from Juan Mata turned the game before Daniel Sturridge sealed victory in injury-time.

The Czech international more than played his part between the sticks however, facing 16 shots on target during the game and producing a number of top class saves.

“It was a great reaction from 2-1 down. We haven’t won here for a long time and then you think here we go again but it was not the case, we knew how to get back into the game and in the end we scored some great goals," Cech told talkSPORT.

"There was a lot of transition between both teams, we had chances, they had some chances and in the end we put them in the back of the net."

Victory meant Roberto Di Matteo’s side kept a four-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table, with Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton the other teams in the Champions League places. Spurs stayed in fifth despite the defeat.

However, a league shake-up could be on the cards next weekend, when the Red Devils travel to Stamford Bridge in an early season top-of-the-table clash.
