Gylfi Sigurdsson admits he would rather contribute to Tottenham victories even it means him not scoring.

The Icelandic midfielder scored his third goal of the Premier League campaign on Saturday but Spurs drew 1-1 with London rivals Chelsea at White Hart Lane which flattened Sigurdsson who felt he and his teammates could have come away with a win.

"It's nice to get another goal, especially against Chelsea at home, but I would have preferred the three points," Sigurdsson told his club's official website.

"We played well in the first half, created a lot of chances, got the goal but in the second half, Chelsea were on top until (Fernando) Torres was sent off.

"We then dominated the last 10 minutes but they defended well and we couldn't get past them.

"We were on top in the first half and continued what we've been doing in the last few games. We've a lot of confidence and I think if we'd have scored the second goal it would have killed the game.

"Now we look to the next game."
