Chelsea 0-0 Tottenham: Mourinho's men return to top of Premier League

A forgettable and at times tedious match at Stamford Bridge saw both teams share the spoils

Chelsea and Tottenham played out a drab 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge in a game of very few chances.

The Blues were arguably the slightly better team over the 90 minutes and dominated possession but were unable to unlock a well-organised Jose Mourinho defence.

The best moment of the first half saw Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham nod the ball just wide of Hugo Lloris’ far post.

Abraham had another half chance with his head just after the break but made a poor connection.

The only real save of the game came in the final 10 minutes when Lloris was at full stretch to push away a powerful shot from outside the area from Mason Mount.

However, Chelsea could have stolen the three points deep into stoppage time as substitute Olivier Giroud pounced on a defensive error but finished tamely.

The result means that Tottenham return to the top of the Premier League table on goal difference from Liverpool, who drew at Brighton on Saturday. Chelsea are two points further back in third.

The draw also means that both teams increase their impressive unbeaten runs. Chelsea have now not lost a match for 11 games, while Spurs are unbeaten in six in all competitions.
