Andre Villas Boas said that he would not blame Emmanuel Adebayor for Tottenham's defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

Spurs were leading 1-0 and in control when Adebayor was sent off, but then collapsed as Arsenal took over and won 5-2.

"The red card did not change the running of the game," he said. "We felt at half-time [at 3-1 down], that if we could cut the margin to one goal the stadium wasn't with Arsenal, there was nervousness around we felt that we could have a chance. At 4-2, we had chances for 4-3."
