Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed that his team didn’t deserbe to lose tonight at Stamfortd Bridge:

“think if you analyse the game, we were better [than Chelsea], Pochettino told BT Sport.

“Against a team in very good form at a good level, we competed really well in the first half.

 “It was a little bit unlucky that we conceded the goal, because we deserved to go in at half-time [winning] 2-0 or 3-0 – never 1-1. I think we deserved more.

In the second half, we conceded a goal very quickly, but we fought and competed. Then they had the chance and scored the second goal, and it was impossible.

“I’m disappointed for the dressing room, but we should be pleased with the way we competed. I think today we competed with a very good team. I have nothing to say about that to my players.

“If you put aside the result at the end, we had the possession, we created more than Chelsea and all the statistics are for us – but football is not about just statistics.

“We have to be clinical, and the chances that they created, they scored.”
