White Hart Lane, London, England

 

Chelsea captain John Terry claimed a point for his team after Gylfi Sigurdsson had given Tottenham a 19th-minute lead in a pulsating London derby at White Hart Lane.

Spurs dominated the opening period with Christian Eriksen proving an astute buy for Andre Villas-Boas, and his ball to Roberto Soldado was placed into the path of the Iceland international, who got ahead of Terry to slot home.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho brought on Juan Mata for the second period and the difference was tangible.

The Spain international's free-kick in the 65th minute found Terry inside the area for the equaliser.

The Blues were in the ascendancy, but striker Fernando Torres was dismissed with 10 minutes remaining after receiving a harsh second yellow card following a challenge with Jan Vertonghen.
