Chelsea – Tottenham Hotspur: Let’s call it Mou’s Gambit when Jose Mourinho set up Tottenham Hotspur for an away point and that is exactly what they did in a goalless draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Spurs’ point holds it at the top of the Premier League for another week, over Liverpool in terms of goal difference

USMNT attacker Christian Pulisic returned to a lavish squad in Chelsea with a 17-minute sub-appearance for the Blues, who are two points behind their visitors

1 Mous Gambit: Jose Mourinho was always about at least one point Jose Mourinho went to his old buddy Frank Lampard at his old club Chelsea and had two days less rest than the hosts on Sunday His game plan was not to let Chelsea beat. If a goal came for Spurs it happened but one point would be enough to keep Tottenham on the table and Chelsea in the rearview mirror another day, Tammy Abraham might have opened the game by he had finished one of his chances, but the danger did not lead to completion and Spurs carried out the plan

2 Lavish Chelsea (again): Last season’s Chelsea history had many, many chances with an unfortunately poor percentage of finishers that was the frustrated blues again on Sunday as the jam-packed Spurs limited Chelsea to a few chances when they came , they were either lashed down (Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech), sidelined (Timo Werner) or mutilated (a misfiring Tammy Abraham)

3 Man of the Match a familiar: N’Golo Kante was everywhere The Frenchman looked to push Chelsea forward by completing 6 of 7 long balls and passing 93 percent while making three tackles and an interception to midfielder Mateo Kovacic was as good as James and Spurs’ Tanguy Ndombele

Timo Werner had the bright start blues with a huge hit from an acute angle in the far post, but the offside flag was high

Spurs had early chances too, Edoaurd Mendy came in 15th Minute low to thwart the best chances of visitors

Tammy Abraham was a man of danger but couldn’t hit the right target all day, even on a torn cross from Reece James early in the second half

Ben Chilwell found Hakim Ziyech, who shot over the goal in a similar manner to the provider’s poorly aimed miss in the first half
