Premier League: Why Tottenham beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge after 28 years – Pochettino


Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has revealed why his side were recently able to beat Chelsea 3-1 at the Stamford first time in 28 years.

Chelsea fell further from qualifying for next season’s Champions League after a dismal performance that saw them lose 3-1 to Spurs at home.

Pochettino said his side deserved the win having dominated play and created more chances than Antonio Conte’s men.

He told the BBC, “After 28 years it is important to win here. It’s a happy day for everyone – fans, players – and we feel very proud.

“We dominated the game but Chelsea created the chances and scored. In the second half we were much better and we deserved the victory.

“We tried to change and switch some players at half-time to find better links and positions to move the ball. After the game when you win it looks like a good decision.

“The players deserve praise because we showed character at 1-0 down. It’s a day to feel very proud.”
