The highly anticipated London Derby between Chelsea and Tottenham failed to produce a goal as both sides cancelled each other out at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Chelsea was looking to celebrate Roman Abramovich’s 1,000th game as club owner with victory over a Spurs team managed by their former boss Jose Mourinho.
Despite the draw at the end of the competitive encounter, Tottenham returned to the top of the Premier League.
Edouard Mendy kept out Serge Aurier’s ferocious strike while Steven Bergwijn scooped another Spurs chance over the bar.
The Blues struggled to carve out clear-cut chances although Hugo Lloris produced a great late save to deny Mason Mount.
Spurs, replaced at the top by Liverpool on Saturday, return to the summit, level on 21 points with the Reds but with a superior goal difference.
Chelsea is two points behind in the third spot.
