Chelsea and Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, but it’s a game Chelsea should have won by a huge margin after total dominance from the Blues in the first half.

Hakim Ziyech scored the opener after 16 minutes of playing following excellent work by N’Golo Kante to win the ball back in the middle of the park.

Timo Werner and Marcos Alonso tested goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini in the first half but couldn’t convert their chances.

At half time, Thomas Tuchel brought off Callum Hudson-Odoi and N’Golo Kante for Christian Pulisic and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Four minutes after the restart, a slick passing move down the left involving Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Alonso ended up with Ziyech scoring a beautiful team goal.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel then opted to make seven more changes, which of course disrupted the rhythm of the game and it gave Spurs the chance to come back into the game.

Tottenham struck back twice through Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn in the 56th and 70th minute respectively, with the second Spurs goal coming with a big slice of luck via a deflection off Antonio Rudiger, to level the scores before the end.
