Tottenham’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were severely damaged when they lost to Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

With just one game remaining, Ange Postecoglou’s team trails fourth-place Aston Villa by seven points. Mauricio Pochettino’s team won against his old team thanks to goals from Trevoh Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson, increasing their chances of making it to Europe.

Spurs rarely applied significant pressure to a Chelsea defense that had already recorded the team’s worst league defensive record in more than 30 years. This was by no means their fluid, daring best.


Chelsea defeats Tottenham 2-0.

You prepare to fail, as they say, if you don’t prepare. Before a second London derby in five days, Ange Postecoglou insisted that Tottenham had “far more important issues” than defending set-pieces. However, following this loss to Chelsea, a potential issue for the Spurs manager is now turning into a crisis.

Spurs 2-0 Chelsea in the FT.

Regarding the Spurs midfield, Jamie Redknapp said, “At the beginning of the season, midfield was a real engine room.”. This midfield appeared to be as strong as any in the Premier League, in my opinion.

Players aren’t performing at the same level as they did earlier in the season because of the changes he made today, and you have to compete every week. “.

Pochettino: “You must endure hardship. “.

What a night for Pochettino, and although there will be difficult times ahead, he will hope that the Chelsea team’s signs are beginning to emerge.

“The first half was fantastic,” he said in an interview with the BBC. Afterwards, you must suffer and be contained. Tottenham has talented athletes. I won’t say too much; all the players deserve praise.

“So content and happy. I’m so glad for the players.

“We are in a great position with incredible professionals working on the set pieces. The group demonstrated a strong desire to develop this style of play. “.

Chelsea enjoys playing Tottenham.

Micky van de Ven, in an interview with Sky Sports.

It will not be easy. After this game, I don’t want to hold the Champions League in high regard. We didn’t play well, and it’s crucial that we win on Sunday.

“We didn’t try to play in the first half. When we emerged, we did not advance. We made an effort to play in the second half, but today’s confidence was lacking.

“We need to reflect on this match and improve come the weekend.”. “.

Postecoglou: “I believed that their goal was a foul.”. “.”.

Although Chalobah scored the first goal with a header, a lengthy VAR review determined that Marc Cucurella had not fouled Brennan Johnson prior to Postecoglou’s altercation.

“I still think their goal is a foul, but nobody cares about that and we didn’t deserve anything more than that,” the Australian stated.

We simply aren’t close to being good enough or positive enough to be where we need to be. It wasn’t about giving up the goal; it was about our approach. That is my responsibility.

It’s okay if people believe that the missing pieces are all that we need; I’ll do my job. I didn’t say I wasn’t interested; I just said it wasn’t my priority. “.

Ange Postecoglou: “There was a loss of belief and conviction.”. “.”.

This is the wrong time of year for Spurs to be experiencing such a dismal run of form after such a disappointing day.

Postecoglou stated to Sky Sports: “It is true that we have lost some faith and confidence in our football, mainly in the midfield, but that is also my fault.

“We didn’t play well. Would you like me to give you a dossier detailing our mistakes?

“I need to examine myself in all of this and realize that my influence is not limited to this.

“It’s obvious that my message isn’t getting through when we perform like we did in the first half, so I should address that. “.

Trevoh Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson goals help Chelsea win for the first time in three games while seriously hurting Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top four.

Even though Ange Postecoglou frequently faced difficulties, the disparity between these two extremely inconsistent teams and their fierce rivals in London was always going to make for an entertaining match.

Chelsea and Mauricio Pochettino won the Premier League double over his old team thanks to two goals from set pieces either side of the interval. Spurs’ careless defense was punished by Trevoh Chalobah, who unmarkedly lifted a header over Vicario. After the break, Spurs made an attempt to tie the score, but Jackson scored twice as soon as Cole Palmer’s free kick struck the crossbar. Spurs had trouble using the ball to their advantage.

Chelsea’s 2-0 triumph at Stamford Bridge has significantly increased their chances of qualifying for Europe as they now sit eighth, while Tottenham has now lost three straight games and is falling behind Aston Villa, who are currently in fourth place.
