Chelsea defeated Tottenham 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night, to go above Spurs on the league table and climb up to 6th position.

Chelsea were totally dominant against Spurs in the first half, as Jose Mourinho’s side came out stronger in the second-half.

The Chelsea manager wasn’t pleased that his team couldn’t get another goal to kill off the game in the first half, and Mason Mount missed a couple of chances to have sealed the victory earlier.

Mount was seen deep in discussion with Tuchel as the players headed for the changing room at halftime, and the 22-year-old explained what he told his new manager in the tunnel.

“I just said I should have had one or two definitely,” he revealed to BT Sport in his postmatch interview.

“And we spoke about it at half-time as well, to just be clinical, go with a purpose and want to score. ‘I didn’t have my shooting boots on today so that’s something I’ll work on during the week.

“It’s a bit different, I’ve been playing a bit deeper so to be up in the box a bit more, I need to work on that finishing so hopefully it can come.”
