Petr Cech held up his hands once more after his second mistake in six days again proved costly to Chelsea's fading Barclays Premier League title hopes.

But unlike at Wigan on Saturday, where their goalkeeper's spill robbed them of maximum points, Cech's team-mates were far more culpable for the Blues' failure to win Thursday night's London derby at Tottenham.

Cech certainly was at fault for Spurs' eighth-minute opener, the 29-year-old missing a chance to cut out Gareth Bale's low cross and allowing Emmanuel Adebayor to prod home. "Unfortunately, when the ball came in, I was a bit late and he tapped it in but it was a great cross, and I think I missed it by an inch," said Cech.
