Pochettino dismisses Chelsea critics

Chelsea winning 4-1 is impressive but it did take Tottenham going down to nine men for the Blues to take the lead.

And even after scoring their second goal, Chelsea very nearly let Tottenham back into the game with Eric Dier having a goal ruled out for offside and Rodrigo Bentancur missing a sitter before two late goals from Nicolas Jackson eventually put the result beyond doubt.

When asked whether Chelsea should have put Spurs away sooner in his post-match press conference, Mauricio Pochettino said: “I think you are wrong. If you watch Tottenham versus Liverpool, they (Spurs) scored in the last minute.

“It’s never easy [against a team with] two players sent off. It’s difficult now to talk about tactics but most important is the 4-1 win and three points.

“I think we deserved to win. We forced them to make too many mistakes. Tottenham was better in the first 15 minutes and then I think we bossed the game, our performance was good and forced them into making mistakes.

“If you look at everything you could see during the game, I think it was fair. It could be an important three points for us, to help us now start to push up the table.”
