That's all from Stamford Bridge, so goodnight!
Following this tricky trip across the capital, Tottenham's task does not get any easier. After a North London derby with Arsenal on Sunday - in the concluding match of the Mind Series - their first game of the new Premier League season comes against Manchester City. Chelsea, meanwhile, can look forward to next week's UEFA Super Cup versus Europa League winners Villarreal in Belfast.
Chelsea somehow contrived to draw this game, having bestrode the Stamford Bridge turf with great confidence and style for around an hour, while Tottenham managed to at least salvage something tangible from a lacklustre performance. Naturally, as is often the case in pre-season encounters, numerous substitutions meant that the match ultimately petered out, but Thomas Tuchel will surely be the happier manager given his team's fine first-half display.

FULL-TIME: CHELSEA 2-2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
90' + 2'
Alli almost sneaks in behind the Chelsea defence, chasing a long diagonal ball, but it is cleared comfortably in the end.
Three minutes of stoppage time are announced, as Abraham and Tanganga have a coming together in the centre circle. Both eventually get up and return to their respective positions.
Dier concedes a corner, from which a Kenedy in-swinger is cleared under Gollini's nose.
The tempo has dropped significantly at the Bridge, with substitutions disrupting the flow of the game. Chelsea's dominance has been diluted, certainly.
Winks fires a right-footed shot from outside the box too high, following a rare attacking set-piece situation for Spurs.
Yellow Card Ethan Ampadu
Doherty comes off in a straight swap with Aurier.
A second successive start for Chalobah today, but he is called to the touchline as Miazga replaces him.
Both sides make a further change, with goalscorer Bergwijn now replaced by young Scarlett for Spurs.
The momentum has been sucked from a superb Chelsea display by Tuchel's raft of second-half substitutions, but still Spurs are content to sit back and attempt to break. It has proved effective though, considering the scoreline.
Gollini has made seven saves so far, demonstrating why Tottenham have brought him in from Atalanta during the summer - initially on a season-long loan deal.
Davies is coming on for Reguilon at left-back.
Pulisic's right-footed shot from the centre of the area goes high and wide to the right of Gollini's goal following a pass from Zappacosta, who has been a lively presence since his arrival from the bench.
SPURS LEVEL! From nowhere, Sarr gifts the ball to Bergwijn just outside the Chelsea area and the Dutch forward strides through and fires between Mendy's legs to equalise. He shifts the ball well between his feet and then slots the ball home with some authority.
Substitute Anjorin surges through and has a left-footed attempt from outside the box saved sharply in the bottom left corner - Gollini is being kept busy in the Spurs goal.
Rudiger is replaced by Ampadu, who spent last season out on loan and now enjoys some rare minutes in a Chelsea shirt.
Kenedy replaces Alonso on the wing.
Havertz is replaced by Zappacosta.
Kovacic comes off for young Anjorin.
Zouma is replaced by Loftus-Cheek.
Without a goal once more, Werner is replaced by Sarr.
Star man Ziyech is one of several Chelsea men withdrawn, with Abraham coming on.
Another attempt saved by Gollini, as Rudiger's left-footed shot from outside the box is stopped in the top left corner.
Chelsea do not appear rattled by losing their two-goal advantage, as they press forward again through Kovacic, and Pulisic shoots straight at Gollini from just outside the area.
Spurs have halved their deficit! Against the run of play, Lucas makes the most of a rare incursion into the Chelsea area and fires a deflected strike up and over the stranded Mendy. Certainly a large slice of luck for the pacy Brazilian, as Rudiger was slow to close him down and saw the ball loop in off his trailing leg. The visitors are back in this somehow.
ZIYECH AT THE DOUBLE! Another precision finish from Ziyech, who sweetly strikes the ball into the bottom right corner of Gollini's net, with the assist coming from Alonso. His second goal of the game, having been involved all of Chelsea's best work so far - Spurs can't contain him.
Hojbjerg has gone off, with Winks on to replace him in midfield.
Hudson-Odoi has been taken off at the break; Pulisic is on in his place.
Kante - after 45 minutes of imperious excellence - is being protected by Thomas Tuchel, so Bakayoko is on following his return from a loan spell at Napoli.
The Spurs bench certainly looks a little lighter in terms of experience and quality than their hosts today, so how Nuno plans to stem the blue tide in the second period is open to question. Chelsea, meanwhile, can afford to leave their England stars out of the squad and still have a fully loaded list of subs, several of whom will be given a run-out later on.
Chelsea have utterly dominated all but one minute of this high-tempo encounter, as they live up to their status as European champions back at Stamford Bridge. Their confidence and sharpness, following Sunday's more tightly contested game with Arsenal, has left Tottenham way off the pace and struggling to get on the ball in any meaningful way.
45' + 2'
HALF-TIME: CHELSEA 1-0 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
FINE SAVE! Havertz fires a left-footed shot from outside the box towards the bottom left corner, but Gollini saves well.
Werner just can't connect with a long through-ball from Chalobah - unfortunate, but Gollini gathers.
CHANCE WASTED! Werner scuffs his left-footed strike straight at Gollini from just inside the box. The German international still appears short of confidence in front of goal.
Dier intervenes just as Ziyech tries to unload another attempt on goal, causing the Moroccan to get the ball tangled under his legs. Chelsea are relentless at the moment.
Ziyech has recovered from his collision with Reguilon and is involved in Chelsea's progress to into the Spurs area, but Alonso just can't connect with Hudson-Odoi's swinging cross from the right.
Ziyech goes down in need of medical attention. After some discussion with the Chelsea medics, he walks to the sideline clutching his right hip.
A hopeful long ball over the top is too straight for Lucas to make anything of, with Mendy mopping up on the edge of his area.
The raucous early roars of the home crowd have settled into a low hum, as their team stroke the ball about confidently in midfield, with Spurs chasing shadows.
Rudiger heads high and wide from a Ziyech corner.
The hosts have had 62 per cent of possession so far and are dictating to a passive Spurs side. Nuno's men just cannot get a foothold in the game.
The buoyant Chelsea fans roar their approval, but Werner's strike from the edge of the box is ruled offside from Kovacic's superb through-ball. A close call.
SO CLOSE! Ziyech nearly doubles the lead with a curled effort just wide of the left post - the former Ajax magician looks in the mood tonight. The home side are totally dominant now.
Sharp cut-back from Alonso in the Spurs area, but Havertz and Werner cannot combine effectively and the chance of a second goal slips away.
SUPER STRIKE! Kante does what he does best by breaking up the play, then feeds Ziyech who strides forward and unleashes a powerful low shot beyond Gollini from the edge of the box. Just reward for Chelsea's endeavour so far.
Havertz stands up a cross from the left touchline, but Alli blocks the effort. From the resulting throw-in, Marcos Alonso's attempt is easily deal with by Gollini.
Chelsea have started to build some momentum now, with Werner and Ziyech pressing effectively in and around the Tottenham area. The crowd are certainly warming to their efforts.
Ziyech opens up his body, trying to bend one into the top corner, but leans back and skies his effort well over Gollini's crossbar. Good build-up play by Hudson-Odoi, joining in from wing-back.
Doherty surges to the touchline but his cut-back is blocked at the last by Chelsea, who have started this encounter on the back foot.
SHARP SAVE! Son shoots from the edge of the box, on the left side, and Mendy reacts quickly to tip it behind for a Spurs corner.
We are under way to thunderous applause from the Stamford Bridge crowd!
Harry Kane misses out again for Tottenham, with the England captain yet to return to training, but Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are now back in the fold after extended breaks. In Kane's absence, Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli all found the net in both of the club's friendly wins over Colchester United and MK Dons - that attacking triumverate are included at the Bridge by new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Euro 2020 winners Jorginho and Emerson both rejoined the Chelsea squad this week, while Mason Mount and Thiago Silva have reported back for pre-season training too. None, though, are yet ready to start.
