Mauricio Pochettino has stated that Tottenham felt they were playing against a small team after the draw with Chelsea.
Tottenham controlled proceedings and held more of the ball against the defending champions but could not score.
The draw seems to be the least of Pochettino’s problem, who is just glad Tottenham restricted Chelsea to just one shot on target.
“We played the defending champions and it is good that you get the feeling that Chelsea was a small team and Tottenham feel they can win every game,” the Argentine told reporters after the match.
“It’s not easy. We are one of the younger teams in the Premier League.
“We need to keep working hard because there’s only been 14 games and today it’s too early to talk about the end of the season.
“I think we created enough chances to score. Chelsea only had one shot on target in the second half from [Eden] Hazard, so I think we deserved more.
“Chelsea played one of their best games of the season, and I think that when you make the effort we showed today – and the maturity – you have to be happy with the players.”
