Tottenham found themselves one goal down in west London after just 19 miunutes as summer signing Kalidou Koulibaly thumped in a stunning volley, connecting perfectly with Marc Cucurella’s curled corner. Thomas Tuchel’s side were in control for much of the contest, keeping Spurs opportunities to a minimum.
However, Tottenham squandered a golden chance with just over an hour played. With Chelsea’s backline unusually out of sync, Pierre-Emile Hojberg slipped a threaded through ball in front of the onrushing Kane.
The England striker charged towards Edouard Mendy appearing destined to crash home an equaliser, however, with the goal at his mercy, the 29-year-old dragged his effort wide. The Tottenham skipper immediately fell to the Stamford Bridge turf before seemingly turning his head to gauge his manager’s reaction.
Antonio Conte put his hands over his face as he turned away in disgust, prompting Kane to slam the ground in frustration. As Chelsea’s fans cheered the Spurs star’s misfortune, Kane got to his feet, looked up and shouted: “f**** off!”
Tottenham would only have to wait a further eight minutes before drawing level, however. After Son Heung-Min intercepted Jorginho’s audacious drag-back in his own penalty area, Ben Davies teed up Hojberg, who duly drilled him the equaliser.
