Tottenham Hotspur fans reflect on fiery battle with Chelsea

On Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur will go head to head with London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the hope of ending a 28-year hoodoo.

The North London outfit have not won at the Blues’ home in the league since 1990, and one of their recent visits has stuck in the memory for all the wrong reasons.

During the 2015-16 campaign, Spurs were the only club capable of snatching the Premier League title from Leicester City’s clutches, but it was a big ask.

Everything seemed to go to plan for Tottenham in the first half as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min gave the team a 2-0 lead before the break.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men relinquished their advantage in the second half, though, as Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard struck to secure a 2-2 draw and hand the league title to Leicester.

The result was not the main talking point of the match, though, as two mass brawls broke out during the encounter, and one left then-Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink on the floor after being knocked over by accident.

There were various meltdowns on the pitch, with Tottenham players physically grappling with their opponents, and at one point Diego Costa got poked in the eye.

For many, the ill-tempered contest has been regarded as a negative reflection on both teams, but for some Tottenham fans, they are thankful that their players are no longer seen as weak.

Ahead of the match, Chelsea supporters have been giving their thoughts on how this Sunday’s encounter will unfold, while Spurs fans are looking back on the drama at Stamford Bridge.
