The 2012 FA cup semi-final saw Chelsea triumphantly take home a 5-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur. Over 85,000 attendees flocked to Wembley Stadium to see the formidable teams’ battle against each other for a place in the FA cup final. Chelsea’s huge win against Tottenham Hotspur led to huge controversy following the match. Leading to a renewal of the debate surrounding goal line technology. The Tottenham Hotspur team and players alike were left bitterly outraged by the “injustice”. The referee was accused of bad judgement, and post-match discussion found that Juan Mata’s goal for the Chelsea team was not near the crossing line and should not have counted. Other goals during the tense game came from Chelsea players: Drogba, Lampard, Ramires and Florent Malouda. Chelsea’s astonishing win came later on in the match where both Ramires and Frank Lampard scored impressive goals. Gareth Bale was the only player from Tottenham Hotspur to score a goal during the semi-final.

Chelsea 1 – 2 Tottenham Hotspur, May 1967
The iconic rivalry between both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur dates back to the FA cup final in 1967. This was the FA’s first final to have two London teams playing against each other. The game was nicknamed the “Cockney Cup Final” by fans, and saw 100,000 supporters flock to Wembley Stadium to support their favourite London team. Tottenham Hotspur won the game with a 2-1 finish, making them the FA Cup winners for that year. It could be argued that some Chelsea fans may have felt disheartened by the fact that two of their former players; Jimmy Greaves and Terry Venables won the FA Cup that year with Tottenham Hotspur. The Hotspur’s clenched the lead in the 40th minute with a right-footed strike from player Jimmy Roberts, whereas the second goal was scored during the second half. However Chelsea kept up momentum despite the opposing teams lead and in the 85th minute Bobby Tambling scored Chelsea’s only goal with a header.
Chelsea 2 – 0 Tottenham Hotspur, March 2015
Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur’s meeting in 2015 saw the boys in blue win the League Cup Final at Wembley with a 2-0 finish. Just under 90,000 fans came out to support their favourite teams resulting in an exciting and lively atmosphere throughout the match. Goals were scored by Chelsea star players: Diego Costa and John Terry. There was some discrepancy surrounding Diego Costa’s goal, with some believing that it may have been an own goal by Tottenham Hotspur player Kyle Walker. However Costa was officially credited with the goal despite the confusion. Former manager Jose Mourinho was certainly pleased with the win as this was the third time Chelsea had won the league cup under his management. Man of the match was awarded to Chelsea’s John Terry. This was Terri’s 15th appearance in a cup final and was the first time he had scored in one. The formidable football professional had a successful 2014/15 season with 5 goals under his belt and an impressive 86% tackle success.
Chelsea 0 – 2 Tottenham Hotspur, January 2017
The 2017 premier league match saw Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea with a 2-0 win. Both goals were struck by the talented Dele Alli, who as a result became the second player to have scored two goals for Tottenham Hotspur’s in a trio of consecutive Premier League games. This success in turn also made him man of the match contributing to his season success for that year. Throughout the season Dele Alli managed to grab 18 goals and 44 on target shots with a 47% accuracy, which is pretty impressive considering the player is in his early 20’s. This game contributed to the Tottenham Hotspur team’s successful run during that season, which at this point in time remained unbeaten in their opening ten games of a Premier League season. For Chelsea this game was a historic moment also, but unfortunately not for the same reasons. Their no score result was the second time in a series of 25 premier league games that the team hadn’t managed to score. Although, disappointing for the Chelsea team their other Premier League successes highlight how great of a team they really are. This game is just another Tottenham Hotspur can add to their long list of successes.
Throughout time the battle between both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur has been exhilarating and provided some of the greatest English football we have seen, from extraordinary wins, enviable attacking talent and catastrophic losses they have provided exciting matches time after time.
