Andre Villas-Boas: 'Draw suits Chelsea more than Tottenham Hotspur'

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas believes that the 1-1 draw with Chelsea suits the Stamford Bridge side more than his team.

Andre Villas-Boas has said that the 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane this afternoon suits Chelsea more than Tottenham Hotspur.

Gylfi Sigurdsson gave hosts Spurs the lead less than 20 minutes in, before John Terry netted a second-half equaliser.

The Tottenham manager told BT Sport: "I think [the result was fair]. The second half was not as good as we wanted. They did well to score from the set piece.

"Both teams had good chances, the chances were spread. We had a good opportunity for 2-0 just before half time, that would have been the killer.

"Always they were a threat on the counter-attack to score and they did. The result suits them better than us, but it was a very tight game."

The result has lifted Tottenham to the top of the table ahead of this afternoon's Premier League games.

Fernando Torres of Chelsea is shown the red card by referee Mike Dean and is sent off during the Barclays Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at White Hart Lane on September 28, 2013
