Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea played out an entertaining and feisty affair at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon, as old friends Andre Villas-Boas’ and Jose Mourinho’s sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
It was Spurs who took the lead in the 19th minute, when Christian Eriksen broke free and found Roberto Soldado who, in turn, found Gylfi Sigurdsson – the Icelandic midfielder battled his way through to score his third Premier League goal of the season.
Chelsea equalised in the second half when, in the 65th minute, Juan Mata – on as a substitute – curled a free kick in to the box, which John Terry met with a glancing header which left Hugo Lloris standing.
Fernando Torres was sent off in the 81st minute for a second bookable offence, but Chelsea held out for the draw which, in the end, was a fair reflection of the match.
