Terry strike gives Chelsea draw at Tottenham as Torres gets red card

Head boy: Terry nodded in Juan Mata's free kick to cancel out Gylfi Sigurdsson's opener for Tottenham[/caption]
TOTTENHAM 1 CHELSEA 1: John Terry ensured Jose Mourinho was not upstaged by his apprentice Andre Villas-Boas with a second-half header to earn Chelsea a share of the spoils were shared at White Hart Lane.
After the managers ensured a brief handshake before the first whistle, Tottenham took the lead through in-form midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson. But Terry was in the right place at the right time to nod the ball home from Juan Mata' well-placed free kick.

In another development, Fernando Torres received a second booking. The Spaniard jumped with Vertonghen and the centre-back went down clutching his face. There was no contact between Torres' arm and Vertonghen's face, but Dean (referee) sent the Spaniard off.

The sending-off gave Spurs more momentum. Jermain Defoe and Sigurdsson almost snatched victory.

Villas-Boas and Mourinho shared a handshake at the end while Terry celebrated in front of his own fans.
