Chelsea maintained their unbeaten record against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur as they came from behind to earn a point at White Hart Lane. Tottenham took the lead after 20 minutes with a goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson and went into halftime leading. However, the introduction of Juan Mata after the break gave Chelsea the incisive finish they had been missing, and the Spaniard’s free kick allowed John Terry to level the score with a trademark header.
Controversy rarely stays away from games between these two sides, and an ongoing battle between Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Torres was cut short after 80 minutes when the Chelsea striker received his second yellow card of the match.
A draw is a fair result from an entertaining grudge match that more than lived up to its billing, and there were plenty of talking points.
