Boss Juande Ramos said they deserved a share of the spoils.
Darren Bent equalised for Spurs right on the stroke of half time after Juliano Belletti had given Chelsea the lead.
"Matches last a long time, in the first half I think we were paying too much respect to our opponents and were maybe overawed by Chelsea," Ramos claimed.
However, an improved second 45 minutes pleased the manager.
Ramos concluded: "In the second half we kept the ball regularly and deserved the point that we got."
