Pochettino: Tottenham Were Way Better Than Chelsea

Pochettino: Tottenham Were Way Better Than Chelsea

Spurs responded strongly with Harry Kane hitting the post and it looked like they had earned at least a point when substitute Michy Batshuayi headed Christian Eriksen's free-kick into his own net with eight minutes left, Chelsea cursing as Willian had also hit the upright.

Marcos Alonso's 88th-minute goal gave Chelsea a dramatic victory in Tottenham's first home league game at Wembley.

Bakayoko was therefore drafted in to make his debut alongside N'Golo Kante and David Luiz in the middle of the park and the Frenchman received widespread praise for his display as Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.

It means Spurs have now lost their last four games against their London rivals at Wembley, and have only tasted victory at the national stadium once since beating the Blues in the 2008 League Cup final. "I am very pleased with the will to fight for every ball and they showed me the desire of last season is still there. this is a flawless response of the champions". I think we played better, we created chances to score but that is football.

I've occasionally been accused of being some sort of "happy clapper" but these player ratings are going to feature some scathing assessments of several members of Tottenham's starting XI.

"They showed me the desire of last season stays still in our heart".

US Starts China Trade Investigation
U.S. administration officials, however, have denied any link between the latest trade action and Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions. The probe will likely further complicate the US relationship with China , the country's largest trading partner.

His Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino, who has had his own problems with complaints about lack of activity in the transfer market, said the difference was Chelsea took their chances and his team didn't.

"We need to stop".

Spurs went through the whole of last season without losing a single game at White Hart Lane, but despite seeing his side succumb to a first home defeat since May 2016, Pochettino believes his team have improved.

"Then last week against Burnley, where maybe the first half we lacked some aggression, we conceded those goals that were too easy - even with 10 men". Sunday's loss was their eighth in ten games at the new Wembley, and the Spurs side we've come to expect - prolific in attack, stingy in defence - has been non-existent at England's hallowed ground. "For us it was hard to score".

"We were much better than Chelsea but we have to accept they were more clinical than us in front of goal".
