Marcos Alonso scored twice to inflict more Wembley misery on Tottenham.
In fact, if they did not think the stadium was a curse before they will be absolutely paranoid now.
It was a fantastic London derby, absolutely brilliant and breathless and enough perhaps to lift Chelsea out of full blown crisis mode.
But Tottenham will be wondering how on earth they lost a game they dominated in front of 73,587 fans.
And having hauled themselves back in thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s late own goal, they still managed to throw it away as Alonso grabbed an 88th minute winner.
Tottenham have managed just two wins at the new Wembley, they have to play here all season and if they keep getting bad luck like this then they really are in trouble.
Tottenham had so many chances, Chelsea survived an absolute pounding in the second half and now it really will worry Mauricio Pochettino that it has become a mental block.
Alonso’s stunning free kick put Chelsea ahead in the first half as the patched up champions delivered an excellent response amid the talk of crisis.
But just when it looked as if they would survive and enjoy a memorable victory, Tottenham hauled themselves level after 82 minutes.
Christian Eriksen’s teasing near post free kick tempted Batshuayi into a terrible mistake and he headed into his own net.
But just six minutes later, with time ticking down, Tottenham brought about their own downfall.
Hugo Lloris’s poor throw out put his team under pressure, Chelsea won the ball back and Pedro freed Alonso and the unlikely hero drilled a shot under the Tottenham keeper.
