06.12.1997 A complete turnaround in a match that saw smashed by Chelsea.  It was 1-1 at half-time, thanks mainly to De Goey's resilience in keeping David Ginola's shots out and Wise clearing Ferdinand's header off the line and Walker denying Lebeouf and Petrescu.  

Until then it had seemed like a normal enough match, but then Tore Andre Flo got a hat-trick, Zola ran riot and Spurs collapsed under the barrage of efforts on their goal.  Nicholls, Di Matteo and Petrescu scored the others.  Ramon Vega's header from Sinton's free-kick drew Spurs level four minutes after the first Flo goal, but in the end we were pleased to get away with six in what must rate as one of the most abject capitulations in Tottenham's history of home games.

01.02.1997 Sol Campbell's deflection on Gianfranco Zola's 50th second chipped free-kick beat Ian Walker and left Spurs always chasing the game as the two teams met in the Premier League.

A long range shot by Roberto Di Matteo added to the lead in the 52nd minute and both keepers were in action with Walker denying Hughes with a great save, while Kevin Hitchcock prevented Andy Sinton getting Tottenham back into the match.  Iversen twice went close, but it was left to David Howells who nodded home Anderton's 82nd minute cross to narrow the deficit.  The Spurs midfielder almost salvaged a draw, but his effort rolled along the goal-line until hacked out by a Chelsea boot.

26.10.1996 The match took place in a sad atmosphere, coming just four days after the death of Chelsea chairman Matthew Harding.

Both Gianluca Vialli and Mark Hughes were wide of the mark with their early efforts, but then in the 27th minute, Ruud Gullitt converted a Hughes header that rebounded off the post.  Spurs hit back just five minutes before the interval, when Chris Armstrong got his head to an Allan Nielsen long-throw to bring the scores level.  

In the 52nd minute, a penalty was awarded to Chelsea when Campbell was adjudged to have brought down Dan Petrescu and David Lee scored from the spot.  The Pensioners added to their lead with Di Matteo getting on the end of Vialli's cross for the third Chelsea goal.

23.11.1994 A Premiership meeting with former player Glenn Hoddle, who was now Chelsea player-manager added some spice to an otherwise defensive match.  Sheringham went close with an effort that hit the upright, while Kharine kept him at bay with a few saves from his shots.  Walker at the other end had to dive smartly to keep out a close range header from Eddie Newton, but neither side was able to breach a defence to break the deadlock.

27.02.1994 A debatable injury time penalty gave Chelsea a 4-3 win that should have been out of their reach.

Spurs went ahead with two goals in a minute from Steve Sedgley (exhibiting a shirt over the head celebration for the first time) in the 17th minute and Jason Dozzell quickly added another.  The home team hit back with three goals from Mal Donaghy (29), Mark Stein (32) and John Spencer (44).  Kharine in the Chelsea goal performed well to make great saves from Anderton, Scott, Gray and Campbell.  

Eventually, Andy Gray pulled the score back to 3-3 from the penalty spot on 71 minutes, but then he had another spot-kick (given when Kharine brought down Rosenthal) saved ten minutes later, only for Stein to secure a home win with his own penalty with seconds left.  Spurs disputed the award, as Dean Austin had not seemed to make contact with Gavin Peacock.

01.09.1993 Teddy Sheringham's 85th minute penalty got Spurs a point at White Hart Lane as Chelsea took the lead through a 23rd minute Tony Cascarino goal.  

Dennis Wise had already gone close with a shot for Glenn Hoddle's team before another effort was guided into the net by Cascarino to give Chelsea a goal advantage.  The Irish international had a couple of further chances before half time, but failed to convert the openings.  

In the second period, Spurs came out with more purpose and former Chelsea man Gordon Durie headed a cross narrowly wide.  Dozzell tested Kharine in the Blues goal with a header and Anderton also brought the Russian keeper into action, while Jacob Kjeldberg had to clear a Sheringham header off the goal-line.  However, the crucial moment in the half came from Sheringham's move into the box, where Steve Clarke pushed him for the ref to award a penalty to Spurs, which Teddy slotted past Kharine.

Only a fine double save from Sheringham and Durie by the Chelsea goalie deprived Spurs of all three points.

20.03.1993 There were debuts for Stuart Nethercott and Danny Hill as Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Nethercott was paired in the centre of defence with Neil Ruddock, while Hill started as a substitute, but replaced Andy Turner in the 73rd minute.  Both went close to scoring with Nethercott hitting the post and Hill getting the ball into the net, but it was disallowed. 

Teddy Sheringham scored from the penalty spot in the 31st minute, following a free-kick to the far post was headed back and cleared off the goal-line, but a spot-kick was awarded.  The goal made it 22 for the season for him, but his former Millwall strike partner Tony Cascarino scored an equaliser for the Blues seven minutes into the second half.  Townsend's high ball in from the left was volleyed past Thorstvedt to level the match at 1-1.

Eddie Newton broke through for the Pensioners in the 76th minute when Graham Stuart broke away on the right and his low ball was slid in at the far post.  Newton then added a second nine minutes later, with a virtual replay of the first goal, before Spurs got a late consolation through debutant Sol Campbell, who had come on as a forward substitute for Nick Barmby and drove home from the edge of the area to beat the Chelsea keeper with just two minutes remaining.

01.12.1990 Chelsea won this First Division match 3-2, but Spurs were hit with a fine to add insult to injury. 

Having stopped for lunch at a hotel on route, the club coach was wheel-clamped and towed away with the team's kit in it.  Therefore, the team sheet was handed in to the referee late and the FA fined the club for the misdemeanour.  The home side won by the odd goal in five, with Kerry Dixon, John Bumstead and Gordon Durie scoring for the Blues and Spurs replied with goals from Lineker and Gascoigne.

06.03.1982 An FA Cup Sixth round tie saw Tottenham produce some marvellous play on a  bumpy Stamford Bridge pitch to move towards Wembley with a 3-2 win.  Terrific second half goals by Archibald, Hoddle and Hazard (in ten second half minutes) eased their way through after Chelsea had taken a lead through Mike Fillery's fierce free-kick just before half-time and then Alan Mayes nicked one towards the end, but Hoddle was imperious that day, displaying his range of passing and creating two and scoring the other to send the Spurs fans home happy (after dodging a hail of bottles and stones back to the tube station).

19.04.1975 With both teams in the bottom three of the First Division, the match was significant in terms of points, but also for the events surrounding the match.  Fights on the terraces spilled over onto the pitch and the game's start was delayed by ref Jack Taylor, while Police struggle to clear the hooligans from the playing surface.

A young Chelsea side, featuring Ray "Butch" Wilkins, tried to hold out, but despite the goalkeeping heroics of John Phillips, goals from Steve Perryman and Alfie Conn secured two valuable points to move Spurs out of the bottom three and virtually condemned the Blues to Division Two.

Captain Steve Perryman led by example, when he shot home at the Paxton Road end following good work by John Duncan and Chris Jones on 57 minutes, with Alfie Conn scoring a second after 74 minutes to seal the win.

12.10.1974 An early penalty settled this First Division game in Chelsea's favour at Stamford Bridge.

Mike England's challenge on Tommy Baldwin was adjudged to be a foul and John Hollins fired home the spot-kick in the seventh minute to beat Pat Jennings. Spurs hit back, with Chris Jones heading wide soon after the goal and then Steve Perryman hit the post with a shot.

Two saves by Chelsea keeper John Phillips denied Spurs before half-time, with Perryman's header and a close range Jimmy Neighbour shot seeing him keep the ball out. While the second half was a more even affair, the Spurs goal lead a charmed life at the very end, when two chances in a late attack somehow failed to find the net.

Spurs, captained by Alan Gilzean, took a 34th minute lead when Ray Evans hooked home Ralph Coates' cross.  Five minutes after the interval, Micky Droy headed in a Charlie Cooke corner and Chelsea won the game with a rare Ron "Chopper" Harris goal in the 66th minute, drilling home a shot through a packed penalty area.

Towards the end, Neil McNab made his debut as a substitute and in the ten minutes he was on the pitch he got kicked on the ankle and only touched the ball twice !!

05.01.1972

League Cup heartbreak came in the last minute of this semi-final second leg, as Chelsea scored to go through to Wembley.  Spurs had taken the lead 2-1 with goals from Martin Chivers seconds before half-time and a Martin Peters penalty fifteen minutes after the interval. 

Chelsea's goal came from Chris Garland with eight minutes left, but with seconds ticking away, a corner on Tottenham's right was played in by Alan Hudson.  The match was played under trying conditions, with the rain lashing down and as the ball came in to the near post, it skidded and managed to squeeze in past Cyril Knowles at the upright to give Chelsea a 5-4 aggregate win.

27.11.1971 A big crowd gathered at Stamford Bridge to witness this close London derby in which Spurs failed to match their recent form and succumbed 0-1 to Chelsea.

In a quiet first half, Spurs only threatened once, when Martin Peters brought a low save from Peter Bonetti when he shot from the middle of the goalmouth, while at the other end, Pat Jennings produced a good save from a Charlie Cooke header. Peter Osgood and Peter Houseman also had good chances without managing to hit the target.

Tottenham started the second half well, but a defensive lapse let Chelsea in for Cooke to strike the ball past Jennings that proved to be the only goal of the game. Spurs still had a chance to level the score, when Ray Evans and Ralph Coates made an opening for Martin Chivers to shoot at goal, bringing a desperate save from Bonetti. Chivers also had a late header fly just over the crossbar.

14.11.1970 Two late goals won this in front of a 61,277 crowd at the Bridge.  Alan Mullery's pile-driver and a poacher's goal from Pearce - both in the last two minutes won it for Spurs, who hit the bar through Chivers in the dying seconds, on a sodden pitch.

In driving rain, Spurs put in a fine performance to take the points in this First Division match to secure a tenth successive league win, which was achieved with some good football and a final flourish.  Having dominated the first half, Spurs had one good chance when Jimmy Pearce forced Peter Bonetti into a save. Chelsea came back into the game during the second period and towards the end, John Hollins' cross found Tommy Baldwin's head, but he put to just over the bar.

With the game looking as though it would finish in a draw, skipper Alan Mullery hit a powerful shot into the net with just a minute left to put Tottenham into the lead.  There was still time for Alan Gilzean to put in a cross and Pearce was on the end to net a second in injury time.

22.03.1969 Chelsea arrived at White Hart Lane with five straight wins under their belt, but a strong wind made playing flowing football difficult.

Fifth placed Chelsea had the best early chance with Peter Osgood's shot being headed off the line by Peter Collins and three other opportunities were not successful, as Pat Jennings touched over a shot by Osgood, John Boyle's drive hit the post and with an open goal in front of him, Ian Hutchinson shot wide of the mark.  It wasn't all Chelsea, as David Webb was forced to kick a header by Alan Gilzean from going in the goal. 

Roger Morgan had failed to make the game as he was hit by 'flu, but his replacement Neil Johnson was in the right place at the right time to get on the end of Collin's through pass, racing past defender Ron Harris and then lifting the ball over keeper Peter Bonetti with just ten minutes remaining.  The lead was almost doubled near the end, with Gilly just failing to meet Jimmy Greaves' inviting left wing cross.

11.12.1965 Two goals apiece from Jimmy Greaves and Alan Gilzean gave Spurs the points in this First Division meeting that ended 4-2.

The muddy surface made it difficult for good control, but Cliff Jones mastered the conditions to score two goals and make one to help Tottenham to the win at White Hart Lane. 

Alan Gilzean handed Spurs the lead in the 19th minute, after Frank Saul headed a cross from Jones into the Scot's path and the second came when Dave Mackay's free-kick was headed in by Jones.  Chelsea hit back through midfielder George Graham before the break to make it 2-1.

On 52 minutes, Jones restored the two goal cushion, netting from close range, reacting to the ball before Eddie McCreadie after Peter Bonetti failed to gather a shot from Eddie Clayton.  A right foot shot ten minutes later from Gilzean was created by Jimmy Robertson, leaving Bonetti beaten again, as the ball hit the top left hand corner of the net.

Then with four minutes left, Peter Osgood took on the Spurs defence and made an opening for Barry Bridges, which he took to make it 4-2, but the Blues were reliant on Bonetti for preventing Gilzean's hat-trick with a stretching save.

A lock-out 70,000 crowd saw Chelsea progress to Round 4 of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win over Spurs.

The returning Bobby Tambling opened the Chelsea scoring with a 17th minute shot on the turn to finish off Murray's low centre.  A penalty was awarded against Phil Beal for a trip on Tambling two minutes later, but Hollowbread dived to keep out Terry Venables' spot-kick.

However, in the 74th minute, man of the match Tambling created an opening for Murray to seal the win with a second Chelsea goal.

04.01.1964 A Third Round FA Cup tie that kicked off at 2.45 because Arsenal were also at home saw both sides under-strength.  Spurs were without Marchi, Brown, Medwin and Mackay, while the Pensioners missed Houseman and Bonetti.

Spurs took an early lead after three minutes, when Eddie McCreadie fell with Cliff Jones and referee Finney gave a free kick to Tottenham.  Peter Baker played it in, Smith swung at the ball, but missed and fortunately, it fell to Terry Dyson to knock it home past 19 year old John Dunn in the Chelsea goal.  With twenty minutes gone, Chelsea levelled when Frank Blunstone's run saw him pass two Spurs defenders and his cross was onto the head of Bert Murray, who beat Hollowbread to make it 1-1.

The second half was a scrappier affair, with McCreadie clearing Eddie Clayton's shot off the line and Hollowbread denying Barry Bridges' drive.  On 65 minutes, Smith crashed Jones' cross against the underside of the bar, but the ball bounced out and that was the last meaningful effort on goal as the game fizzled out into a draw and a replay was needed to sort out the two teams.

03.04.1961 Three headed goals gave Tottenham the win in a close London derby.

The first came in the seventh minute from John White's cross, when Bobby Smith nodded one in against his old club.  Just after the half hour, Brabrook fell heavily after challenging Maurice Norman in the air and left the field, leaving Chelsea a man short.  Shortly after, Chelsea's Jimmy Greaves hit home a cross from Mike Harrison and received a booking (the first of his career) for disputing the offside decision that ruled it out.  It was only a short time after when the Blues did equalise form a Frank Blunstone shot and they went on to take the lead in the 55th minute through an unmarked Greaves.

On 59 minutes, Spurs pulled level When Medwin headed home a nod back by Smith from Blanchflower's long cross.  A quarter of an hour from the end of the game, Maurice Norman moved forward to head home a Dave Mackay free-kick to secure a 3-2 win.

07.11.1953 It was an early goal after Frank Bentley and Frank Blunstone created the chance for Leslie Stubbs to head home that gave Chelsea the lead in this First Division meeting at WHL.  Bentley could have doubled the lead after 30 minutes, but shot wide with only Ditchburn to beat and it proved a costly miss, as George Robb and Len Duquemin produced some space to put the ball in and Eddie Baily stretched out a leg to knock home a low cross from 12 yards out to equalise.

The two Spurs players proved providers again, with Sonny Walters on the end of their good work this time to score in the 77th minute.  Robb was a menace to Chelsea on the day and was brought down in the area to win a penalty kick, but Alf Ramsey's spot-kick was saved by Bill Robertson.
