Spurs still pressing here. Can they create one more opening?
Three minutes of added tme here.
Dier lines up the free-kick after Cesar Azpilicueta was booked for a foul. The strike, however, was never hitting the target,.
CHAAAANCE! That was their moment! Aurier whips it in, Vinicius gets up highest, but cannot guide the header on target.
Patient build-up from Tottenham, Lucas gets half a yard, has a go for goal, but it flies over the top.
Mount into Pulisic, who tries to get the ball onto his left, but another effort is blocked.
Too little, too late?
Chelsea getting a little ragged here as Kante swipes out Lucas to concede a free-kick and earn himself a yellow card.
SAVE! Finally! A proper effort at goal from Spurs, with Lamela drawing a fine save out of Mendy with his left-footed strike.
Spurs are somehow still in this, so now is the time to start taking risks.
SAVE! Superb save from Lloris to keep his side in it. Mount picked up the pass from Werner, fired for goal, but Lloris got down brilliantly to claw the ball out.
James cuts onto his left foot, fires for goal, but again it is blocked. Chelsea should be out of sight.
Change for Chelsea with N'Golo Kante on for Kovacic.
Double change for Spurs, with Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura on for Bergwijn and Ndombele.
WIDE! It opens up for Mateo Kovacic, he has options either side, but instead the Blues midfielder pokes for goal, with the ball rolling just past the post.
SAVE! Brave goalkeeping from Hugo Lloris, with the skipper just beating Pulisic to Mount's cross to punch clear.
Change for Chelsea, with Christian Pulisic on for Hudson-Odoi.
OVER! James into Alonso, but the Spaniard's volley is over. Difficult chance.
