Chelsea’s winning streak came to an end at White Hart Lane, as the Blues succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham.
Speaking after the game, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hailed Tottenham for their win, while also praising his players.
He told BBC Sport: “I saw a game with a great balance. It is not easy to play against Tottenham.
“But we played with a good personality to create the chances to score a goal, but we could not take them.
“It is strange for us to concede these goals because we are defending well, and they are in a crucial moment. At the end of the first half and then in the second half after we miss the chances to score, but this can happen.
“We must work hard and be pleased with our position in the table, but know this league is tough until the end for the Champions League, for the title.”
