Tottenham and Chelsea played to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge with the stalemate lifting Jose Mourinho’s side to the top of the Premier League on goal difference.
Top spot in the Premier League was at stake as Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho renewed their managerial rivalry, but goalmouth action was in scant supply on an afternoon where defences came out on top.
Tammy Abraham passed up three scoring opportunities in the second half before Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud saw late efforts saved by Hugo Lloris, but Chelsea rarely threatened as Spurs produced a hallmark Mourinho defensive display.
The draw saw Spurs drop points away from home for the first time this season, but the point was enough to move them above champions Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the table. Chelsea, who are now unbeaten in 14 in all competitions, remain two points back in third.
