Hard-earned point in goalless London derby (0-0)

Chelsea shaded this hard-fought London derby and leave White Hart Lane with a much-deserved point after an excellent performance on a windy afternoon in the north of the capital.

The Blues were dominant for much of the game against a physical team who hadn’t lost in the Premier League since the opening day of the season, but clear chances were in short supply at both ends.

The best opportunities were a pair of first-half headers. Ours fell to striker-for-the-day Eden Hazard who nodded over, and soon after Heung-Min Son could only direct his aerial effort at Asmir Begovic.

In the second period it was Hazard who came closest to breaking the deadlock with a well-struck volley that Hugo Lloris did superbly to tip round the post, but by the end both teams were happy to settle for a point on a day when defences were on top. It is now three clean sheets in a row for the Blues, who are in next in action against Bournemouth on Saturday.
