Tammy Abraham missed a handful of chances as Chelsea and Tottenham battled out a cagey 0-0 stalemate at Stamford Bridge.
In what was a first half of few clear cut chances, Mason Mount came the closest as his shot from outside of the box flew over the bar.
The Blues dominated the ball but were unable to penetrate Spurs’ rigid back line, with Jose Mourinho’s side typically organised at the back.
Hakim Ziyech and Reece James continually bombarded Hugo Lloris’ area with crosses but the Lilywhites managed to deal with it with ease and there was nothing to separate the two sides at the break.
Frank Lampard’s side attempted to put a stamp on the encounter after the break with James delivering two fierce crosses for Abraham, who failed to convert his header on both occasions.
Mount came closest for Chelsea with ten minutes remaining as his fierce shot from outside of the area was smartly stopped by Hugo Lloris.
Moments later, Spurs had their best chance of the game as Heung-min Son’s cross was parried by Edouard Mendy.
In the dying embers of the match, substitute Olivier Giroud squandered a glorious chance to seal the points for Chelsea as he failed to put enough power on his chip.
