A win for Chelsea against Tottenham would have taken the Blues top of the Premier League table, but Frank Lampard’s side could only get a draw in the game.

For Jose Mourinho, he only needed a point to go top of the table, and he set his side up to get a draw from the game.

Speaking about the cagey affair at Stamford Bridge, Chilwell admitted that he was rather pleased with the draw, admitting that keeping a point in such a crucial game is good for Chelsea’s title challenge.

“When you’re battling up the top, you don’t want to give them points and they don’t want to give you points,” Chilwell said.

“We wanted to win but we’ll take the draw – we’ve got to be happy with that.

“I don’t know if it was entertaining to watch but I found it pretty entertaining on the pitch because it was two good teams who were tactically very good on the day.

“I’d have loved for us to win the game at Stamford Bridge against our rivals but for myself and the rest of the defence, the clean sheet is really important for us moving forward.”
