Managers Reaction 

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel: “We were working extremely hard for it and it was a tough match. The effort was outstanding, and it was a deserved win. It is so hard to create chances against them, but we were relentless and kept on believing. Keep on going, there was no need for changes, some details of when to take the risk and when not. Encouragement to keep ongoing.”

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte: “I don’t like to lose, and defeat is always difficult for me, but I think to have nine games in a row without defeat was important. At this moment, the gap with other teams like Chelsea is really an important gap and the team and the squad, the game was… I am proud of the effort. We tried to do everything but sometimes it is not enough, especially against a team like this. Now there is a big difference between us and the top teams.”
