Pochettino: Chelsea Were Dominated By Tottenham

share on:

Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham were better than Chelsea, but concedes they lacked in front of goal.

Chelsea won 4-2 in the FA Cup and had only five shots on target. Willian scored a brace, with Hazard and Matic rounding up the scoring.

Pochettino’s men scored twice, after going behind twice, thanks to goals from Kane and Alli.

“Congratulations to Chelsea. We dominated the game, but they were more clinical than us,” Pochettino told BBC Sport. “I feel proud, we were fantastic in the way we played and in our philosophy. They had five shots and scored four goals and we score only two.

“It is important to speak about the moments of the game. We fought a lot. We tried and scored. The penalty for me was a soft penalty or was not a penalty. To go into the changing room 2-1 down was difficult and again we played well in the second half and scored, but then they came back.”

“Only now we can look forward. We are four points behind them and we will try to win our next game,” added the Spurs boss. “I am not worried. The team is strong, we are focused. We were competing with one of the best teams in Europe. Did we deserve more? Sure, but that is football.

“Now we will try to be calm, watch the game again and try to improve. We are in a process of trying to improve, if we cannot win the FA Cup this season we will try again next season.

“We have another difficult game coming up against Crystal Palace. It is a tough league to play, but we are okay. For sure now we are disappointed but that is football.”
