The Italian kept us out in the goalless draw back at the Lane in November and denied us again on Saturday with three top-class saves.
The pick of the bunch was a point-blank effort from Simon Davies in the first half, his full-length effort to deny Gus Poyet wasn't far behind and finally, in the last minute, he was there again to save from Matthew Etherington.
In the end it was a point each after Gianfranco Zola's free-kick cancelled out Teddy Sheringham's opener.
Boss Glenn reflected afterwards: "Cudicini has pulled off some magnificent saves against us this season, unfortunately.
"Back at the Lane we deserved to win and he was the difference and he's played a wonderful game again this time.
"We were in the driving seat, very much so and some of the football we played, to dominate them here, was a good sign for me.
"If we keep striving and keep playing like that I'm sure we'll beat this hoodoo against Chelsea in the Premiership. I feel that's just around the corner."
Glenn Hoddle was again left to rue the fine form of Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini after our 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
