It would be an astonishing achievement, especially given the backstory - they won only 12 league games all last season, and the last match before this run was that desperate defeat at the Emirates - and the apparent return of old-style competitiveness to the Premier League.
Of course, this success follows Spurs' 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace in August and their dramatic 3-2 triumph over West Ham in November.
Chelsea were in a similar position as champions as well this time last season but now Kante is helping them to try retain their title.
Conte hit back as Chelsea look to extend their lead to eight points with a 14th successive Premier League victory. And definitely, they will pose a strong threat to the Chelsea defence which has played so well till now.
Antonio Conte's side remain five points clear at the top of the table but Spurs are now just seven points adrift of their London rivals. Moses is still learning the defensive side of the game, and Alonso is particularly vulnerable, if he can be isolated against a skilled attacker.
Yet Tottenham picked them apart in short order. Eriksen and Dele Alli combined to create both the first and second goals with canny resemblances.
Spurs on their part have moved to third spot with 42 points also from 20 games.
Tottenham are therefore fortunate to be meeting Chelsea again at the end of that run.

Arsenal needed a central defender in the summer and they left it late but after a long running saga, Arsene Wenger brought in German worldwide Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia for £35m.
"We are top of the table because we are working a lot, but for sure this league is very tough and we must continue to work and improve". The biggest news ahead of the game is that key defenders Jan Vertonghen and Kyle Walker are available for selection after serving their one match suspension in the match against Watford. Even as Spurs' star began to rise again in recent weeks, that result remains the most memorable of the season so far. There is also growing pressure from United and a great opportunity to make the most of Arsenal dropping points. That means winning possession in the middle of the pitch and getting on the front foot will be crucial. Teams who cross more and cross better will have good chance to beat the Blues. Conversely, if the Chelsea pair find themselves tracking runs in their own half, it's advantage Tottenham.
Alli has often been likened to Gerrard and Lampard after helping Tottenham push for the title in his first season in the league.
