    • 90'
      Tottenham push forward on their final attacking move of the game. They earn themselves a throw-in on the right wing but fail to take it quick enough, resulting in the referee blowing his whistle to bring an end to the contest.
    • 90'
      Tottenham earn themselves a late free kick near the halfway line. They take it short and send it to Walker, who then launches a lofted pass forward, but it's completely mishit and can only find Zouma on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 45'
      Wonderful free kick by Willian! The Brazilian sends a beautiful cross into the heart of the penalty area, where it finds the head of Ivanovic, but the Serbian can only send his header bouncing wide of the near post before the linesman's flag is raised for offside.
    • 90'

    • 90'
      And now Chelsea have made their final change, with Pedro making way for Loftus-Cheek for the final two minutes.
    • 45'
      A multitude of bodies battle for the ball deep down the left wing before Azpilicueta is scythed to the ground by a vicious challenge from Walker, who leaves the referee with no choice but to show him a yellow card.
    • 90'
      It's been a good performance from both sides, neither of whom want to lose this in the final few minutes. As a result, both are looking increasingly nervous when on the ball and don't want to commit too many bodies forward.
    • 0'
      In the end, it was a rather cautious display from Tottenham and Chelsea, both of whom didn't want to push too far forward as they became increasing nervous as the game wore on. In the end, the point is a fair result and one that does neither much harm, although it is arguably better for the Blues, w

    • 0'
      It's been an intriguing opening 45 minutes, with both sides enjoying their fair share of chances in front of goal. Tottenham have arguably come closest, with Kane looking extremely hungry whenever on the ball in the final third of the pitch, whilst at the other end Hazard seems to be thoroughly enjo

      Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has also made three alterations to the side that featured in the aforementioned thrashing of Maccabi Tel Aviv, with the biggest talking point being the decision to drop Diego Costa. In his place comes Pedro, pushing Eden Hazard into a false 9 role. Meanwhile, Br

      Chelsea’s midweek win in Haifa was the first time in over two months that Jose Mourinho’s men had won away from home, and they will be hoping that the victory there will help them achieve another one today. It won’t be easy, however, as success at White Hart Lane has eluded them in recent years - ju

      With that in mind, Chelsea’s task is a huge one, but they will feel as if the tide may be slightly turning in their favour thanks to two positive results in less than a week. Last Saturday saw the Blues beat Norwich City 1-0 to pick up much-needed Premier League points, before they continued their f

      After a slow start to the season, Tottenham are in fine form at the moment and head into today’s clash unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League games, their best run since March 2013. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been excellent at both ends of the pitch, conceding the second fewest number of goal

    • 1'
      And we're off! Tottenham get us underway, attacking from left to right.
    • 3'
      After a patient start, Son breaks down the right wing and latches onto a pass forward from Kane. The South Korean then tries to find the striker, who had made a run into the Chelsea box, once again, but Zouma does well to get in the way of the attempted cross.
    • 4'
      Chance for Kane! Tottenham immediately come back through Rose down the left flank, who then whips a lovely low cross towards the near post. It almost meets the outstretched foot of the aforementioned striker, but Begovic is just about able to get a hand on the ball to send it away from danger.
    • 5'
      Begovic seems to be struggling after being accidentally clattered into by Kane, but after a minute or so of receiving medical treatment he's able to continue, much to the relief of his manager.
    • 7'
      It's been a patient but effective start by Tottenham, who are bossing possession and have looked confident every time they've been able to push forward and put Chelsea under good early pressure.
    • 8'
      After a lengthy period on the back foot, Chelsea are finally able to push forward on an attacking move of their own. They work the ball around quickly before Willian tries to pick out Pedro with a low cross to the near post, but it's sent too near to Lloris, who is able to cut out the danger as a re
    • 10'
      Eriksen charges down the right wing before finding Pedro with a lofted pass right onto the chest of Son. The South Korean brings the ball down well before teeing up Kane, who immediately unleashes a thumping strike that deflects off Cahill and away from the Chelsea box.
    • 11'
      Tottenham quickly regain possession and come back through Eriksen, who once again links up well with Son. The latter then tries to pull one a one-two with a flick on the right-hand side of the penalty area, but it's mishit and fails to reach the Dane.
    • 13'
      Azpilicueta fouls Eriksen on the right flank, resulting in a free kick for Tottenham in a very dangerous position. The Dane steps up and curls a dangerous cross into the middle of the penalty area, but it can only find the head of Zouma.
    • 14'
      Again, Tottenham win themselves a free kick, this time midway inside the Chelsea half of the pitch. It's swung in by Eriksen and finds the head of Alderweireld, but the Belgian ends up pushing Matic to the ground and, as a result, the referee awards a free kick the other way just as his headed effor
    • 16'
      A thumping clearance from Begovic flies down the pitch and almost reaches Pedro inside the Tottenham penalty area as a result of indecision from Vertonghen, but at the last minute the Belgian is able to get a head onto it to send it away from the Spaniard and out of the box.
    • 17'
      Kane goes close! Eriksen embarks on a good run forward before teeing up the striker, who had started the move, and the latter then unleashes a fierce low strike from the edge of the penalty area. It takes a wicked deflection that causes problems for Begovic, but the Chelsea goalkeeper is just about
    • 19'

      Big chance for Hazard! Oscar flies down left wing before curling an absolutely excellent cross over to the far post. It meets the head of the Belgian, who rises high before sending a looping header just over the top of the crossbar.
    • 23'
      Chelsea are knocking on the door! Once again it's Pedro who causes the Tottenham defence problems after good play by Hazard, but the Spaniard's rocket of a strike from 20 yards out is tipped over the crossbar by a great save from Lloris.
    • 25'
      Willian does well to dispossess Walker on the right wing before curling a brilliant cross into the heart of the penalty area. It looks set to find Pedro on the edge of the six-yard box but Walker is just about able to get a head on it at the vital moment.
    • 27'
      Son goes close! A wonderful curling cross from the right wing flies right onto the head of the South Korean, who rises high above Ivanovic and meets the ball well before forcing Begovic into making a good save. He then tries to volley in a follow-up strike but is beaten to it by the Serbian at the v
    • 28'
      Walker charges past Azpilicueta and heads towards the byline before cutting a great pass into the feet of Kane. The striker meets it at the near post but, with his back to goal, is unable to spin and shoot before Begovic collects the ball.
    • 30'
      Great strike by Dembele! Tottenham work the ball around wonderful well before the aforementioned Belgian finds himself in space just outside of the Chelsea penalty area. He takes a quick touch before unleashing a thumping shot that Begovic does well to push round the post.
    • 32'
      Hazard breaks away on a darting run down the right flank before being clattered into by a clumsy sliding tackle from Rose, who completely takes out the Belgian and ends up earning himself a yellow card as a result.
    • 34'
      Tottenham patiently pass the ball around near the halfway line as they try to find a way through the sea of blue shirts in front of them.

    • 36'
      A careless cross-field pass from Pedro almost causes Chelsea problems by being cut out by Son in a dangerous position, but Zouma is just about able to reach it in time. He then sends a bullet header flying down the pitch and into the path of Hazard on the edge of the Tottenham box, but he slightly m
    • 38'

    • 40'
      Fabregas does well to dispossesses Dier deep inside the Chelsea half of the pitch, resulting in a dangerous Tottenham attack coming to an end. The Spaniard then tees up Willian, who bursts forward before being clattered into by a clumsy challenge from Kane near the halfway line.
    • 42'
      Chance for Oscar! A curling cross from Fabregas on the right flank finds the aforementioned Brazilian on the left-hand side of the penalty area. He initially fails to fully control the ball but picks it up once again and comes at Mason, whom he nutmegs before penetrating the box and firing a chipped
    • 44'
      Vertonghen breaks into the Chelsea half of the pitch before whipping a well-placed pass straight into the feet of Kane. The striker controls it well before spinning and shooting, but there's far too much power on the strike and it flies safely over the top of the crossbar.
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be two minutes of added time.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 48'
      The ball bobbles around the edge of the Chelsea penalty area before Mason chips a cross towards Kane. It flies straight into the hand of Fabregas, but the Spaniard's arm was tucked into his body and, as a result, the referee ignores the Tottenham players' pleas for a penalty.
    • 50'
      Oscar twists and turns on the left wing and cuts inside before being tripped over by Son, resulting in a free kick for Chelsea in a dangerous position. It's whipped into the heart of the penalty area, where it bounces agonisingly close to Zouma before finding the hands of Lloris.
    • 51'
      It's been a good start to the second half by Chelsea, who have done well to keep Tottenham quiet and deny them the opportunity to find any sort of rhythm when pushing forward.
    • 52'
      Vertonghen becomes the latest player to enter the referee's book for a crunching sliding challenge on Hazard that has left the Chelsea attacking midfielder feeling rather sore.
    • 54'
      Great play by Mason! The midfielder twists and turns on the left-hand side of the penalty area after embarking on a great run forward, but just as he's about to release the ball he nastily twists his ankle, leaving him in a heap on the floor and in serious discomfort.
    • 56'

    • 56'
      After spending a minute or so receiving medical treatment on the pitch, Mason eventually hobbles off the pitch to be replaced by Lamela.
    • 58'
      Defensive mix-up by Tottenham! Dier, Vertonghen and Alderweireld all fall asleep as they expect one another to pick up a loose ball, allowing Hazard to latch onto it. He then flies forward and almost beats the latter defender, but his fellow countrymen does well to dispossess him before he can do so
    • 59'
      Eriksen picks up the ball and skips past Matic before being cynically fouled by the outstretched foot of the Serbian, who receives a yellow card as a result.
    • 61'
      A short pass by Hazard is cut out by Walker, who immediately charges down the right wing. The aforementioned Belgian does well to get back, however, and cuts out the danger before the Tottenham full-back can penetrate the penalty area with a cross.
    • 63'
      Chance for Son! The South Korean weaves his way forward on a lovely run before playing a quick one-two with Kane on the edge of the penalty area.

    • 65'
      Lamela and Matic clash whilst battling for the air in the ball, leaving the Serbian in a heap on the floor and in serious discomfort. The Tottenham fans aren't happy with the referee's decision to halt the game, but the Chelsea midfielder did seem to receive a forearm in the face.
    • 66'
      Matic comes back onto the pitch and play resumes with a drop ball, which Oscar blasts back to Lloris.
    • 68'

    • 78'
      Chance for Chelsea! Alderweireld fails to deal with a bouncing pass forward, allowing Pedro to dart in behind the Belgian before picking up the ball at the near post. He's unable to get a shot away before being dispossessed, however, and Oscar too sees his attempted shot blocked by Dembele when it e
    • 80'
      It looks as if Chelsea are now playing for a draw, as they are progressively dropping deeper and spending their time when in possession. A point wouldn't be a bad result for them, and they still pose a threat on the counter-attack.
    • 82'
      Chelsea patiently push forward down the right flank before Ivanovic penetrates the right-hand side of the penalty area. He battles hard with N'Jie but the substitute comes out on top before earning his side a goal kick.
    • 84'
      Chelsea are starting to look more dangerous as they push forward on a rare foray forward. Ivanovic, who has spent the vast majority of the game on the back foot, gets forward well before swinging a low cross into the box, but it's cut out by Vertonghen at the vital moment.
    • 86'
      Oscar is brought down on the left flank, resulting in a free kick for Chelsea in a very dangerous position. It's whipped into the penalty area but fails to beat Walker, who clears the danger with a diving header at the near post.
