Chelsea defeated Tottenham 2-0 in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge, but the game could have gone another way had Harry Kane’s first half goal stood.

Kane was adjudged to have pushed Thiago Silva who fell to the ground before scoring, but Antonio Conte doesn’t believe it was a foul.

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte also slammed the referee for issuing a yellow card to right-back Japhet Tanganga.

“In the first half the referee disallowed a goal, I was very clear with him in a polite way, but to see this type of goal disallowed in England was incredible,” Conte said in his post-match press conference.

“Maybe in Italy it was 50-50, but in England it was incredible.

“What also hurt me a lot was the yellow card to (Japhet) Tanganga. It can seem a stupid thing, but the yellow card changed the game for him and also meant we had to substitute him. The referee tried to make the best decision, it could be good or bad.”
