Chelsea lost to Tottenham despite having taken the lead via an Alvaro Morata goal.

A stunning Christian Eriksen strike just before halftime levelled the scoreline, and a brace from Dele Alli gave Spurs the 3-1 win.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was happy with the team’s performance and believes the team were unlucky.

“I think the performance has been good, especially in the first half,” Conte said afterwards.

“I think we played good football and scored only one goal. I think we deserved to be 2-0 or 3-0. Instead, we conceded a goal in the last minute of the first half and I think this goal created problems in our minds. We lost a bit of confidence.

“But, despite this, in the second half we started the game very well. Then, we conceded a goal that you can avoid, there was a free ball and I think we made a mistake. The season is going in this way. Now we have to try to do our best until the end.”
