Lampard down with what looks an ankle injury in the centre-circle but he hobbles back into position.
Chadli tries to make a real name for himself with a wild strike on goal but he had other options there.
Patient play from Tottenham as they attempt to unlock the Chelsea defence but there is nobody in the middle when the cross finally comes in.
Defoe plays a nice one-two before shooting from 25 yards but the ball is deflected wide for a corner, which Cech catches confidently.
Dembele really pulling the strings in the middle now and Dawson is even advancing as Tottenham push for the winner.
Torres and Vertonghen clash heavily in the air and it's Torres who is shown a second yellow and red card. That looked incredibly harsh.
Tottenham have stopped the Chelsea tide in the last couple of minutes and are trying to maintain possession.
Tottenham's dangerous-looking attack ends in a weak shot from Naughton and Chelsea launch a counter.
The corner is cleared at the front post though Chelsea attack again. Ivanovic gets the cross over but Tottenham eventually win a free kick.
GOAL TERRY! Juan Mata makes a real impact, curling a peach of a free kick onto Terry's head and he glances it past Lloris.
Vertonghen into the book now and rightly so. Ramires was almost in on goal but there was just about enough cover.
Tottenham under pressure all over the pitch and there's another coming-together between Torres and Vertonghen now. This is bubbling up nicely.
Chelsea looking very bright all of a sudden and Hazard has the latest attempt on goal. He tries to curl to the far post but it's not hit with much venom.
Brilliant from Dembele again as he beats his man down the left and whips in a cross but it's just beyond the attacking Spurs players in the middle.

Chelsea trying to move the ball quickly after the break. A few stern words ringing in their ears, no doubt.
Tottenham get the second half under way and it looks as though Ramires has dropped into the centre to play alongside Lampard, with Mata up on the right.
Sky Bet are now offering 13/2 for Chelsea to recover and win the game, while the draw is 11/4 and Tottenham can be backed at 1/2 to seal the victory.
David from Aberaeron sent this one just before kick-off: "Don't support either team but I hope Spurs win just to show Chelsea what a good manager they threw away without giving him a chance. Benitez isn't doing too badly either!"
Chris Green from Huddersfield has been in touch and, like many people I'm sure, still sees this as being in the balance. He says: "I'm really glad Spurs are winning - the Blues just haven't been at the races so far, which is surprising because they are normally good on their travels. I wouldn't rule out the chances of an equaliser happening yet, though. Football is a funny old game and anything can happen, especially if Spurs don't grab a second goal soon."
Tottenham lead 1-0 at half-time but Chelsea finished the first instalment strongly and Mourinho will be hoping for more of the same in the second period.
Terry tries to end the half on a high and launches himself at Ramires' cross but it goes over the top.
A second booking for Tottenham and it's Eriksen into the book for shirt-pulling as Oscar tries to break.
Paulinho should have made it two for Tottenham. Walker's brilliant back-heel finds Townsend who slips it through for Paulinho. His effort flicks the outside of Cech's left-hand upright and goes wide.
Paulinho's effort at the other end is blocked, before Vertonghen tries a very speculative shot from around 40 yards.
Hazard shoots from the edge of the box and it defelcts wide for a corner, which Spurs deal with and pump the ball long.

A brief tussle between Terry and Soldado but the referee is happy to let play move on. Torres is then fouled by Vertonghen, but still no cards.
Luiz wins a corner down by the corner flag before Ivanovic is penalised for a foul throw. Yes, a foul throw in the Premier League.

It's been scrappy at times but Eriksen has really shone in the first half-hour. Oscar struggling to make much of an impact for Chelsea.
Naughton is found by Eriksen on the edge of the area but his shot is tame and Cech gets down for a comfortable stop.
Chelsea just getting a little foothold in the game but Tottenham still look dangerous in the wide positions.
Lampard does well in defence and Chelsea break thorugh Oscar. Tottenham win it back but then knock it out of play as Dembele needs some treatment.
The corner comes to nothing but Spurs soon win the ball back and Chelsea need to be careful here. Luiz hacks one clear for a Tottenham throw in.
So nearly a second for Spurs but Ivanovic saves the day just as Paulinho is about to tap in. Corner Tottenham.
The Spurs fans in full voice as Chelsea now try to get a foot on the ball in the middle of the park.
GOAL SIGURDSSON! Tottenham open the scoring and it's Eriksen who starts the move before Soldado lays it off to Sigurdsson, who just evades the last defender, Terry, and slots past Cech.
Torres feels hard done by as he goes down on the edge of the box but nothing is given. The ironic applause he aims at the officials won't have gone down well.
A lot of long balls are being attempted at the moment, mainly because neither side is getting any time on the ball.
Eriksen sends in a wicked free kick and Terry is forced to head out for a Tottenham throw in on the left deep inside the Chelsea half.

Torres caught offside now, with Terry launching the ball forward from the back. Torres looking lively in the early stages here.
Eriksen getting some good early touches of the ball and he finds Sigurdsson, who is brought down. Free-kick to Tottenham around 35 yards out on the angle.
The Belgium midfielder is fit to continue and returns to the field with a hole in his sock after Walker's challenge. It was purely accidental.
Hazard and Torres link up well down the left and the ball drops back to Lampard but he can't wrap his left foot around it properly.
Paulinho has been amongst the goals lately but his effort goes wildly over the bar. A complete mis-hit from the Brazil international.
Both teams working hard to close down the other side when not in possession and neither side dominating yet.
Eriksen fires the ball to Soldado in between Chelsea's centre-halves but the striker couldn't quite get the ball under control.
Soldado looks to get in behind following a long ball forward from Sigurdsson but it's struck too hard and run through to Cech.
Hazard breaks up a Tottenham attack but Oscar loses out to Dembele as both sides try to stamp some authority in midfield.
The team are in the tunnel and we are approaching kick-off time. Zahid from Crawley says: "I think AVB has got it slightly wrong. Sandro should be instead of Dembele and Lamela instead of Townsend. Still, Spurs have a great bench. So you never know. Too close to call."
Tyler from Kettering: "I reckon a Spurs victory today. Soldado double, Eriksen to run the show and hopefully a JT red card for good measure. C.O.Y.S"
Conor Sheridan is another confused by the lack of Mata, emailing: "I support Man United but it baffles me how Mourinho persists on not using Juan Mata in the one game he'll be needed, how does Mikel deserve a place over him? I hope Tottenham, particularly Soldado and the improving Eriksen, do some damage today and prove a point, 2-1 spurs!"
Henry Koh isn't expecting much in the way of entertainment: "This fixture usually produces goals, but this time it could be different, with both teams more closely matched than in recent years. If both midfields cancel each other out, we could be in for a tense, tight affair."
Laila Falle: "Mata on the bench again.... What is Mourinho thinking? I just do not get it, he is an excellent player. It beggars belief!"
A bit more info from our friends at Sky Bet now. Spurs have won just three of 42 Premier League meetings with Chelsea but start this one as slight favourites at 6/4. The Blues are available at 19/10 and the draw is 23/10. Fernando Torres gets the nod over Samuel Eto'o in attack and is 9/1 to score the opening goal of the game.
David Newman also fancies Defoe to have an impact off the bench, offering: "No change in the playing system to make way for on-form Defoe - and he must be pretty annoyed at his lack of playing chances in the Premier League games. But he could prove to be a lethal substitute if he is needed in the second half. Both teams have got a lot to prove and it will be pretty close. Im going for 3-1 to Tottenham wth Soldado (2) and Defoe in the goals."
Alex Samuels from London has emailed in with: "I think we are in for a caged match in the first half but then all out war in the second. With Defoe scoring in second half, 1-0 Spurs."
Sky Bet are offering a few Price Boosts for the match, including Roberto Soldado to score first at 15/2. That looks juicy enough to me, but head now to Sky Bet if you have other ideas and want to check out the full markets.
