Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur: 0-0 Match Report

Chelsea were unable to go top of the Premier League after a goalless draw against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were unable to grab the three points on the 1,000th game under Roman Abramovich as club owner.

Chelsea controlled possession early and created the best chance of the first half at the 10-minute mark. Mason Mount was able to give Timo Werner the ball inside the box on left with space after Sissoko slipped. Chelsea big signing was able to slot it across goal with a brilliant finish but was deemed offside by a small margin.

The first half wasn’t all Chelsea however, as Spurs had overall the most dangerous moments in the opening 45 minutes. Aurier had a good attempt from outside the box saved by Mendy.

Spurs midfielder Ndombele also stole the show in the first half and was definitely the best player of that half.

Bergwijn also had a great chance from a dangerous counter which went over the bar.

Chelsea didn’t look as dangerous as Spurs in the first half, but they did have their fair go of chances to pull ahead.

After a poor clearance from Spurs, Chilwell was able to take a touch inside the box yet hit the ball on the half volley.

The first half ended with both sides having good chances and left us expecting more goals in the second half.

Shortly into the second half, Reece James put in a brilliant cross for Tammy Abraham who just couldn’t get a good connection with the ball as it fizzed past him.

James continued to show his quality with another brilliant cross that Abraham failed to take advantage of yet again.

The Blues had complete control of the second half but nearly conceded a goal at the hour mark when a miscommunication from Kante and Mendy nearly allowed Son to steal the ball and be through on goal but he was unable to make the most of that opportunity.

Chelsea continued to assault Tottenham with crosses. Werner put in a good cross for Abraham who wasn’t able to do anything with it. Chilwell also took advantage of a poor pass from Dier to cross to Ziyech in space who hit it over the bar.

Lampard brought in Pulisic 73rd minute taking out Werner, who wasn’t as effective as he can be today. Abraham came out for Giroud soon later, a poor game from Abraham who should have grabbed a couple goals today.

Havertz returned to Premier League action in the finals minutes of the game but the biggest chance on the game came to Giroud.

After a Rodon mistake, the ball fell to Giroud one on one with Lloris who was off his line. Giroud attempted to chip his French compatriot but he was unsuccessful.
