Pedro: Unable to find way past Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris

Nobody outperformed Hugo Lloris or Asmir Begovic as Tottenham and Chelsea played out a 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Chelsea left Diego Costa on the bench and instead started Eden Hazard up front, but the Blues were unable to claim what would have been only their second Premier League away win of the season remained elusive as Tottenham extended their unbeaten run in the competition to a club-record 13 games.

One of Spurs’ best outlets was Son Heung-Min, but the forward, who made his name in Asian football playing for FC Seoul before joining Hamburg in 2010, was guilty of missing a good chance to win the match for Spurs.

Here is how Press Association rated the players on action in north London…


HUGO LLORIS: It needed a great save to deny Eden Hazard in the second half. 7

KYLE WALKER: Showed his pace down the right during a solid display. 6

DANNY ROSE: Not an afternoon for flying full-backs to shine. 6

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD: Rolled up his sleeves when needed. 6

JAN VERTONGHEN: Hacked down Hazard with a tackle that will infuriate Jose Mourinho. 6
