Didier Drogba had a stoppage-time penalty saved as Chelsea drew 1-1 against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at White Hart Lane.
The striker had a chance to win the game in the 93rd minute after a crass challenge by Heurelho Gomes on Ramires, but the goalkeeper redeemed himself, diving to his left to stop Drogba’s mediocre spot-kick.
Drogba had earlier come off the bench to score Chelsea’s equaliser and had Gomes to thank, as the Spurs man produced a howler to let the 70th-minute shot elude his grasp.
Roman Pavlyuchenko had given Spurs a 15th-minute lead with a crisp finish, and a draw was probably a fair result.
However, a single point suits neither side, with Chelsea now on a run of five games without a win, and Tottenham looking to establish their credentials as genuine title contenders.
15′ R. Pavlyuchenko [1 – 0]
70′ D. Drogba [1 – 1]
