Andre Villas-Boas hailed the performance of under-pressure captain John Terry after his last-gasp intervention prevented Chelsea from losing to Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

The Chelsea skipper learned on Thursday he will be charged by the Criminal Prosecution Service for alleged racist comments he made towards Anton Ferdinand during the west London derby at QPR in October.

"His performances, commitment and concentration have increased since the incident and he anticipated the situation at the end there. It was a big opportunity for Tottenham," Villas-Boas said.
