GOAL FLASH! Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Chelsea

(13′ mins): Certainly, London’s newest footballing venue was rocking come kick-off, although rivalry was briefly forgotten as the two sets of supporters showed their collective respect for the late Martin Peters – a legendary figure at Spurs and West Ham, as well as a goalscoring World Cup winner with England in 1966.

Frank Lampard had endured his most challenging period since taking charge of the Blues – but it was his side who struck first, Willian arrowing an angled, right-footed strike beyond Paulo Gazzaniga following a well-drilled short corner routine with Mateo Kovacic.
