Super-sub Sigurdsson gives Tottenham a draw, keeps Chelsea in top-four suspense

The result will also complicate Benitez's preparations for next week's Europa League final against Benfica, but it did allow Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas to depart with a smile after his first game back at Stamford Bridge since he was sacked by Chelsea last year.

London: Substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson scored an 80th-minute equaliser to snatch a 2-2 draw for Tottenham Hotspur at Chelsea on Wednesday that prevented their opponents from effectively securing a place in the Champions League.

A goal from Ramires looked to have taken Chelsea to the brink of a top-four finish, after Oscar's opener for the hosts had been cancelled out by a fine solo goal from Emmanuel Adebayor on a night of high tension at Stamford Bridge.

However, Adebayor created a late opening for Sigurdsson with a delightful back-heel, and the Iceland midfielder swept home to keep Spurs' hopes of Champions League football alive and kicking.
