Chelsea played brilliantly against Tottenham, but it was unfortunate that the team couldn’t take all three points at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel admitted he was pleased with the team’s display, but faulted the officiating on the day.

Tuchel believes the two Tottenham goals were contentious and listed some of the things the referee got wrong.

“We were absolutely brilliant,” Tuchel told Sky Sports.

“Sorry I have to say but both goals cannot stand, absolutely cannot stand, there’s only one team that deserves to win, that’s us, we were absolutely brilliant.

“I’m sorry for my team that they don’t get what they deserve.

“First of all it’s a clear foul on Kai Havertz in the build up, a clear foul. We had one tactical foul from Reece James that got a straight yellow, I don’t know how many tactical fouls Hojberg and Bentancur did today, nothing happened.

Tuchel said: “Clear foul on Havertz, the situation goes on and on, then it’s a clear offside from Richarlison.

“He’s in the line of the shot, he even goes to the ball, he does not touch the ball but Edou cannot see the ball. They check it, it’s a clear offside.

“And since when can we pull hair on a football field? We check it and nothing happens. We don’t need to check anymore, it’s ridiculous.

“That’s the only frustration. I’m the happiest coach on earth because we played a fantastic match, we were absolutely brilliant, dominated 90 minutes. Sharp, hungry in all areas of the pitch disciplined and so full of quality. top, top, top performance and I’m sorry for my players.”

    Poor referring always cost a winning team. FA must now take considerationon how Chelsea is treated. We haven’t forgotten how last season we suffered with these situation.
