Chelsea 1-1 Tottenham

Aug 31, 2008

A resolute Tottenham earned their first point of the season as they held a frustrated Chelsea to a draw.

Michael Essien hit the bar for Chelsea before they went ahead from a disputed corner after Darren Bent’s sliced clearance went in off Juliano Belletti.

But Bent atoned when he slotted in the equaliser after inadvertently being played in by Chelsea’s Frank Lampard.

The home side dominated possession in search of a winner but Spurs repelled their attacks to hold on for a draw.
