Tottenham came twice from behind to level the score after Willian’s two goals in the first half, but they missed most of their goal chances, while Chelsea scored four times having only five shots on target in total. No wonder Mauricio Pochettino talked about how ‘clinical’ the Blues were.
Congratulations to Chelsea. We dominated the game, but they were more clinical than us
the Tottenham manager told BBC Sport right after the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley, which his team lost 4-2.
I feel proud, we were fantastic in the way we played and in our philosophy. They had five shots and scored four goals and we scored only two
the Argentine said, rather gutted about the fact that his team missed a golden chance to make it to the FA Cup final, and of course give themselves a new morale boost ahead of the Premier League’s last six games.
Now we can only look forward. We are four points behind them and we will try to win our next game. I am not worried. The team is strong, we are focused. We were competing with one of the best teams in Europe. Did we deserve more? Sure, but that is football
Pochettino said. Tottenham are facing Crystal Palace on Wednesday, in yet another game that winning is imperative for them, in order to continue chasing leaders Chelsea.
