The last time the two teams met, 303 days ago on the very first day of 2015, the fans were treated to amazing football and goals galore. The London derby between Chelsea and Spurs has always been an intriguing match and over the years, everyone has been expecting this match to be lively and exciting . It was anything but. A drab 0-0 draw with only a total of 5 shots on target. Chelsea must have been extremely satisfied, keeping a clean sheet and earning an important point against an in-form top team who were on an unbeaten run of 12 games before this match, away from home.
Spurs, obviously, dominated possession and had numerically greater number of chances, but Eden Hazard’s volleyed effort was the closest either of the two teams came to breaking the dead lock. It was shutter shut down at both ends as Spurs squandered a wonderful chance to leapfrog Arsenal, momentarily, and join the top 4 brigade as they played a goalless 0-0 draw against the derailed defending Champions.
