Chelsea held to a draw

6:01 am on 1 September 2008

Chelsea's flying start to the English Premier League football season has lost some momentum after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea had won their first two games, scoring five goals and conceding none, while Spurs lost both theirs and the London rivals started the day at opposite ends of the league table.

Second placed Liverpool also lost their perfect start to the season after being held to a nil-all draw by Aston Villa, while Manchester City moved up to third with a 3-nil win over Sunderland.
