Fernando Torres got a red card.
Tottenham played better in the first half and deservedly took the lead through Iceland international, Gylfi Sigurdsson , in the 19th minute.
Chelsea came back stronger in the second half as Juan Mata replaced Nigerian international, Mikel Obi.
Chelsea’s dominance paid off when John Terry scored a header from a Mata dead ball in the 65th minute.
The game however changed when Torres was sent off for Chelsea in the 80th minute. The Europa League winners ended the game with 10 men but still held the score at 1-1.
