Chelsea missed a golden opportunity to close the gap at the top of the Barclays Premier League as Luka Modric earned Tottenham a 1-0 win and inflicted Guus Hiddink's first defeat since arriving in England.

A suspect vehicle delayed kick-off at White Hart Lane, meaning the visitors kicked off knowing leaders Manchester United were struggling at Fulham, but they failed to take advantage.

Victory would have taken them within a point of United but Hiddink's men were frustrated by a Tottenham side who have been transformed since Harry Redknapp's arrival five months ago, with Modric striking the winner just after the interval.
