Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn cancelled out Hakim Ziyech’s double as a second-half Tottenham comeback earned them a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
The hosts dominated the opening period and deservedly led when Ziyech ended a 30-yard run by burying the ball low past Pierluigi Gollini (16), before Timo Werner saw a second wrongly ruled out for offside before the half-hour.
Dismal Spurs were two behind when Ziyech found the bottom corner again four minutes after half-time but did finally improve to pull a goal back through Moura’s deflected effort 11 minutes into the second period.
They found themselves level against a much-changed Chelsea side when Bergwijn fired through Edouard Mendy’s legs (70) and nearly completed the turnaround when substitute Ben Davies’ effort was cleared off the line by Ethan Ampadu.
