True, Chelsea hit the bar and the post but they did naff all apart from that and only scored thanks to a Grant howler and a pathetic clearance from Pieters.
It was more like the Stoke of old though and it got the atmosphere going again for the first time in a long while. Diego Costa was on a mission to compete for the Olympics, diving at every opportunity. Not surprised Bardsley finally gave him something to cry about with that kick to earn a booking. Silly second yellow though when going in hard on Fabregas who is also a snidey fecker.
Must admit that I didn't see why we'd won the penalty. But replays showed that Cahill caught Walters on the back of his heel as well as giving him a little shove so not surprised to see it was given after all. Saying that, the ref may have just been making up for the disallowed goal for Martins Indi which was indeed a good shove by Berahino on Azpiliceuta!
Glad to have a little break now and hopefully we'll be up for our next game which is Leicester away. Hoping it'll be a good performance as I'm going down too.
8th home draw of the season for United. Didn't create one chance in 94 minutes. Horrendous display
Been like that most of season really mate.
Ibra/De Gea been carrying you this season
Sounds like Smalling/Jones and Mata out as well now
Good job you should have Europa as a fine chance for CL if league goes tits up
Comfortable enough for Pool today. Can't fault any player in Red and Lukaku didn't have a sniff
Koeman post match interview hilarious but maybe protecting players as have Utd in the week
I knew Spurs would finish Burnleys home record
Palace beating Chelsea
Sunderland look fooked
Cracking comeback by Hull!
Bore draw at Saints - comedy penalty miss!
Leicester on a roll again!
Awful results for Swans today - must win tomorrow.
If they do that - it'll bring everyone up to 11th in the relegation scrap!
At least things at the top have got a bit more interesting. Of course you would still expect Chelsea to win it but they have got some potentially difficult fixtures.
Good thing for us is that the top teams all have to play each other so guaranteed points lost somewhere along the line
Moysey's comments - if that was to a man reporter would it have even made the news?

Could tell it was April Fool's Day, Stoke were a joke at Leicester
Shame really - Was a decent day out otherwise, result overshadowed it for me.
Not expecting much at Burnley tonight either.
Another horrendous and embarrassing performance.
Could be worse, could be Stoke! We can't even get corners right at the minute!
You're playing us at the weekend so will prob score 5 from corners!

That pretty much sums up how I feel after Liverpool and Swansea results!
Tottenham though I'm impressed with that. I'd say it's the mark of champions to pull off a comeback like that in the last 6 minutes were it not for Chelsea ahead of them! I'm a bit gutted that they won last night, I just wanted a Man City win to make the title race a bit interesting for the run-in.
Swans took off RB and put fecking Leroy Fer at RB who was AWFUL there v Bournemouth last week so bafflong why he did it again.
A lot of fannying around about whether Fabianski wwas injured or not or coming off or not
7 mins injury time just killed it all
West Ham v Swans
Swans were AWFUL
West Ham nearly worse if that makes any sense!
Swans need to win v Watford next week now
Mark - thanks for the 3 points at The Britannia
Pleased with our (Spurs) ability to actually turn games around this season. Going so well. I don't think we are in the title race (despite how close it is) - it's entirely Chelsea's to lose. Still a magical few seasons for us as a whole.
Also (finally) got to see the Lane. Never seen us play in Home games, only ever away. Managed to get a stadium tour courtesy of my wife. Super happy I got a chance to see it before the new stadium is built.

West Ham's stadium looks horrendous.
With the amount of Premier League money i'd rather of stayed at Upton Park.
Look at that disgusting walkway gap in between the tiers.
Beautiful stadium - just a bit soulless and lack of atoms
Spurs first XI is awesome - hardly any weak points (apart from when they play us)
Top keeper (I really like Lloris)
2 of the best full backs in league
Alderweireld is superb and Vertonghen does well
Wanyama/Dier a fine job of holding unless the power/strength of Dembele needed
Alli and Eriksen on fire
Kane a proper No.9
Son always seems to deliver as well!

Definitely the best team I've ever seen play for us.

We'd be even better with Danny Rose fit. Would add a whole different dimension to our attacks.
Davies just doesn't do it for me.

Seen that young Sessegnon lad at Fulham?
16 years old and looks fantastic. Could be a good understudy to Rose.
Can't say I have - I know of him but don't know anything about him really.

Think we are in for Sessegnon as well
Ben Davies does a fine job as a bench warmer - never been great going forward though
Palace and Sunderland getting something would be nice for the rest fo the weekend! (both would be awful for Swansea tho!)
