WHAT THEY SAID: “I’m not sure. When players score, they have something like an out-of-body experience," told reporters. "I didn’t score many myself so I wouldn’t know. You should enjoy the celebration, I don’t think you need to involve the opponent. That would be my perspective."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chelsea twice took the lead in the match but were denied victory as Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ellis Simms both scored for the visitors to snatch a point. The draw leaves Potter's side down in 10th place in the table and has halted their recent revival.
