Our 13-game winning run came to an end as we lost 2-0 to Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes Chelsea lost to Tottenham because Chelsea met their match from a physical standpoint.

“Chelsea looked a shadow of their recent selves and it seemed like they weren’t playing with the same level of anger as over the last 13 games,” Keown told Daily Mail.

“Maybe life has been a bit too good for them of late.

“I think this was mostly down to the way Tottenham handled them.

“Pochettino’s side matched their visitors from a physical standpoint and did very well to quell any potential storm, particularly at the start of the second half.

“They kept Chelsea at bay while on the back foot before hitting back with a second goal.”
