Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has spoken of his disbelief after John Terry's goalline clearance denied him a late winner against Chelsea.

With the game heading for a draw, Gareth Bale fed the on loan Togolese striker whose shot beat Petr Cech but was turned behind by the outstretched leg of Terry.

After coming inches away from snatched all three points, Adebayor was in disbelief as he watched Terry make the heroic clearance.

"That was a difficult one," he said. "I knew what I was going to do in my head and when the ball came, that’s what I did.

"When I saw the ball on its way I thought 'yes', I was excited, I thought the ball was going into the back of the net.

"But unfortunately, John Terry was there. I don’t have a clue where he came from. I don’t even know how he saved the ball. Fair play to him.

"It was a tough game," he added. "We had chances, they had chances as well.

"We wanted to win so badly but in football, it doesn’t always go the way you expect or the way you want.

"This time, we have to be happy with one point and keep our heads up, keep going and hopefully get a good result at Norwich on Tuesday."
