Fernando Torres sees red as Chelsea FC hold Tottenham Hotspur to a draw

Torres played a key role in Chelsea's second-half revival, but having earlier appeared to scratch Jan Vertonghen in an off-the-ball incident, he was sent off in the 81st minute after being shown a second yellow card for leading with his arm in a challenge on the same player.
