Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admitted that his side ‘knew that defeat could happen’ against Tottenham tonight.
“I think today I saw a game with a good balance and they scored a goal at the end of the first-half and the second goal in our best moment”.
Then Conte added: “It is a pity to stop this run, but Tottenham is a good team, a really strong team and I think is for sure one of the teams that can fight for the title until the end. They fought last season and they can fight also this year”.
Chelsea conceded two goals again, after Dele Alli scored a brace at White Hart Lane beating goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
“When you concede two goals, for sure you have to improve. My team are top of the table because we are working a lot. This league is very tough and it is important to continue to work.”
