It's been a brilliant game so far, with both teams playing just poorly enough to allow a flurry of chances at each end. Tottenham Hotspur have hit the post and seen a Rafael van der Vaart header cleared off the line by John Terry. Meanwhile, Juan Mata managed to mess up a one-on-one after a brilliant pass from Salomon Kalou. It looked like the half would end at nils, but a phenomenal Didier Drogba effort has given the Blues a 1-0 lead, with the big striker destroying William Gallas and then rifling in past Carlo Cudicini's near post. Advantage Chelsea.
Oh, and a comment about the chants during the moment of silence for Hillsborough - I hope that most will join me in condemning them in the strongest possible terms. Supporting a team doesn't mean dehumanising those who have different allegiances, and it's disturbing that some would choose to voice their love of Chelsea by mocking others' deaths.
