Spurs remained fifth on the table but sit just two points behind third-placed Arsenal with a game in hand and one point in arrears of fourth-placed Chelsea thanks to late goals from Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale.
In a controversial match which saw Luis Suarez bite the arm of Blues defender Branislav Ivanovic, Oscar gave the visitors the lead in the 26th minute before Daniel Sturridge levelled against his former club seven minutes into the second half.
Eden Hazard converted from the penalty spot just before the hour-mark but Suarez managed to fire the Reds level in the 96th minute to give them a share of the points, however, they are five points behind Merseyside rivals Everton in sixth.
The Toffees retained that position despite being beaten 1-0 by Sunderland who have Stephane Sessegnon’s goal on the stroke of half-time to thank for putting them into 13th and six points clear of the relegation zone.
Arsenal moved into third spot with a 1-0 victory at Fulham courtesy of Per Mertesacker’s first-half header with two players seeing red – Steve Sidwell for the Cottagers and Olivier Giroud for the Gunners.
Elsewhere, Norwich City heaped more misery on bottom-placed Reading with a 2-1 home triumph, Stoke City piled more relegation pressure on QPR with a 2-0 win at Loftus Road, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United drew 1-1, Swansea City and Southampton played out a 0-0 draw and West Ham United moved to 10th with a 2-0 home victory over West Bromwich Albion.
