He may not have scored a single goal, but John Terry was the focal point at Chelsea's Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.

The beleaguered England and Chelsea captain played his first game after the Crown Prosecution Service announced that he would face prosecution for his alleged racial abuse of QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry was greatly instrumental in saving the Blues from the jaws of defeat, something which Andre Villas-Boas can hardly afford at this stage.

The Chelsea boss readily lauded his captain's heroics on the field that virtually saved the day for him. Terry was constantly booed by Spurs fans right from the beginning, but he was hardly distracted. In fact, he was partially at fault when Emmanuel Adebayor scored the opener just eight minutes into the game, but he redeemed himself, preventing a second Spurs finish in the dying minutes. Adebayor almost scored a winner in the added-time, but Terry descended on the scene from nowhere and blocked the shot to divert the ball to safety.

Daniel Sturridge's finish on 23 minutes cancelled out Spurs' lead and the Blues earned a well-deserved draw.
