Honours Even In London Derby

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea drew 1-1 at White Hart Lane in a hotly contested London derby on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs started the brighter of the two sides and created the first half-chance with Jan Vertonghen nodding a ball back across goal in the 13th minute but nobody was on hand to finish.

Six minutes later the hosts were in front with a delightful sweeping move with Christian Eriksen passing to Roberto Soladado who laid the ball off for Gylfi Sigurdsson who produced a neat finish.

Spurs were on the up and four minutes later a superb block from Branislav Ivanovic prevented Paulinho from tucking away a second from close range.

Eden Hazard tried to respond four minutes before the break after robbing Kyle Walker but his shot was deflected wide of the target while Fernando Torres was halted brilliantly two minutes later.

Oscar smashed a shot straight at Hugo Lloris with a crisp volley moments later while Paulinho clipped the side of the posts in the dying seconds of the half.

Torres did superbly to beat two defenders three minutes into the second-half and squared for Oscar but the Brazilian poked wide when he should have scored.

Lloris then denied the lively Torres in the 53rd minute before Chelsea finally drew level when Juan Mata's curling free-kick was nodded in by John Terry.

Lloris had to stop Andrew Schurrle after he was played in by Torres but the Spaniard's night would come to an early end when he was harshly handed a second yellow card.

The game ended on a thrilling note with Jermain Defoe firing a decent shot straight at Petr Cech while Sigurdsson curled a strike just wide as the points were shared.
