Chelsea are not at Manchester City and Liverpool’s level

“The level of build-up was different and, after 15 minutes, we were 2-0 down.

“The defensive phase today was a disaster. I am not talking about the defensive line but the [whole] defensive phase.

“The offensive players pressed very badly, the midfielders defended not very well and the defensive line, as a consequence, was a disaster. The defensive phase of the team was a disaster.

“In the first 25 or 30 minutes, we had big problems to exit from our half. We lost a lot of balls and, against Tottenham, it is very dangerous to lose a lot of balls in your half. In the short counter-attack, they are probably the best in Europe.”
