Antonio Conte believes there is a big gap between Tottenham and Chelsea after his side lost the first leg 2-0. The results were a big blow to their hopes of winning the first title for 14 years. Spurs failed to have a shot in the first half with Harry Kane’s freekick in the second half being their only decent attempt at goal.
“It was a difficult game, from the start. Chelsea showed they were much better than us. In the first half, we struggled a lot but we know that we’re talking about one of the best teams in Europe and in the world.” Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte said. “Last year, they won the Champions League and if you compare the two teams I think there’s not a comparison. We’re talking about a team that’s ready to win and they’ve played an important part over many years.”
“Today, we have seen the difference between the two teams. I said that these types of games can show us the difference in the gap there is between us and top clubs like Chelsea. We struggled a lot this evening and they showed us they are much stronger than us.” he added. “There is a lot of work to do in many aspects because at this moment in the last couple of years the level of Tottenham has dropped a lot. Now we have to rebuild and to rebuild we need patience and more time.”
