Ray Parlour and Sandro both tweet their thoughts after Tottenham Hotspur secure a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge
Tottenham Hotspur denied Chelsea the chance to secure their Champions League spot after twice coming behind to secure a draw at Stamford Bridge.

Ramires then temporarily restored Chelsea’s lead but Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled with 10 minutes remaining to leave Spurs fifth and Chelsea third.
