Drogba misses penalty in Spurs draw

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba missed a stoppage-time penalty as Chelsea's Barclays Premier League winless run stretched to five matches with a 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

Heurelho Gomes looked to have gifted the champions the unlikeliest of victories when he clattered into Ramires having already handed Drogba an equaliser with a complete howler, but he redeemed himself by saving the latter's spot-kick.

Spurs had led through Roman Pavlyuchenko's ninth goal of the season and could easily have won but for their erratic goalkeeper.
