Tottenham Hotspur squandered their chance to move up to fourth place in the Premier League table after being held to a goalless draw by Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

The visitors’ Asmir Begovic was the busier goalkeeper in the first half, as he saved efforts from the likes of Son Heung-min and Mousa Dembele.

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard – deployed up front for the Blues – forced Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris into a reflex save from a superb volley in what was Chelsea’s only shot on target in north London.

The result left Chelsea in 14th place in the Premier League table and 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 14 games of the new season.

Spurs, meanwhile, are fifth and a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal ahead of the Gunners’ clash at Norwich City on Sunday afternoon.

Sunday’s lunchtime kick-off inevitably prompted plenty of reaction on Twitter despite the game ending goalless – and here are some of our favourite initial updates.
