Tottenham Hotspur winger Nacer Chadli has stated on the club’s official website his two personal highlights of the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.
“I think it has to be the 5-3 win against Chelsea on New Year’s Day and my goal against Arsenal at the Emirates,” the Belgium international told Spurs’ official website when asked about his personal highlight of the season.
“People still talk to me about that, even Arsenal fans! Also, to reach double figures for goals scored in the Premier League was a good moment for me."
Tottenham Hotspur 5-3 Chelsea (January 1, 2015)
Winning against Chelsea is not easy, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side showed that on their day they can match the best teams in the Premier League.
Spurs went behind to a Diego Costa goal in the 18th minute, but they staged a remarkable comeback at White Hart Lane to win the Premier League encounter 5-3.
The star of the show was England international striker Harry Kane, who scored twice. Chadli also found the target against the Blues.

The entertaining Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw, after England international attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s goal for the Gunners in the 74th minute cancelled out Chadli’s effort for Tottenham on 56 minutes.
