Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea – Torres Sees Red As Londoners Finish Level At The Lane (Highlights & Photos)

By Alan Duffy

Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Chelsea – Premier League – 28th September 2013

Britain Soccer Premier League

A second-half John Terry header secured a share of the points for Jose Mourinho against his old apprentice Andre Villas-Boas on Saturday.

The home side were the better team in the first period, with in-form Icelander Gylfi Sigurdsson netting on 19 minutes after good work from Cristian Eriksen.

After the break, the Blues improved, with half-time sub Juan Mata energising the visitors. Striker Fernando Torres looked like a man possessed after the break and was booked for a clash with Jan Vertonghen, which ended with the Spaniard grabbing the Belgian’s face.

Just after the hour-mark, the equaliser came, courtesy of a JT header from a Mata centre. Torres was then sent off, after ref Mike Dean (very very harsly) adjudged the Spaniard to have elbowed Vertonghen. And that was that. Probably a fair result in the end.

    Fernando ‘Scratch yer Eyes out’ Torres was a demon today, best yet in a blue shirt. BT coverage pretty good too.

    The sending off wasn’t for an elbow, and it wasn’t even a “sending off” – it was a second yellow for launching himself into the air at a player with no intention of getting the ball.

    Torres was a petulant unsporting weasel and should have been sent off earlier for the scraping offence (not “grabbing the Belgian’s face” as it was phrased above.

    Hopefully he’ll be banned for a few matches once that’s reviewed and hopefully Mourihno will be pulled up for condoning and excusing such thuggery.
