I couldn't believe it - Ade

Emmanuel Adebayor said he 'didn't have a clue' how John Terry denied him a last-minute winner against Chelsea on Thursday night.

Emmanuel Adebayor said he 'didn't have a clue' how John Terry denied him a last-minute winner against Chelsea on Thursday night.

A thrilling encounter saw chances at both ends in the last 10 minutes as another memorable Premier League clash finished 1-1 at White Hart Lane.

Ramires missed a golden chance for the visitors in the 86th minute but there was still time for another match-winning opportunity.

With the clock reading 91 minutes, Gareth Bale dribbled to the edge of Chelsea's box and played in the perfect pass for Emmanuel to go and win it.

The striker - who handed us the lead in the seventh minute - beat Petr Cech again only for Terry, sliding in behind his goalkeeper, to somehow divert the shot across goal and wide of the far post.

"That was a difficult one," said Ade afterwards. "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."

Ade admitted the lads were desperate to topple Chelsea.

"It was a tough game," he said. "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."
