Chelsea beat Tottenham 2-0 on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium thanks to a brace from Chelsea attacker Willian.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho refused to give credit to Frank Lampard for outclassing him tactically and instead suggested Chelsea were better only because Lampard copied Antonio Conte’s formation.

“They were better than us in the first half. It is not difficult for me to admit it,” Mourinho told reporters.

“They played in a system they are very comfortable with. A system they played for two years with Antonio Conte. Lots of their players are very comfortable with it.

“It’s easy for me to admit they were superior. But you look to the goals and they are not a consequence of any superiority.

“The first goal is a short corner with a big mistake. We know how to defend short corners, we train how to deal with short corners. The players involved were not focused.”
