Mauricio Pochettino: It's always difficult to play against Chelsea


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino says his team deserved more than just a goalless draw against Chelsea.

Spurs extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 13 matches as they move closer to the top four.

And the Argentinean says his players are "heroes" for the maturity and effort showed against the Blues.

"It's always difficult to play against Chelsea and after travelling back from Azerbaijan [from our Europa League clash against Qarabag FK] it was an even tougher game," Pochettino said.

"But I think we can be pleased with the performance and the maturity we showed as a team. The effort was unbelievable and for me, they are all heroes.

"We deserved more but at the end we have to be happy with the effort, we created more chances than Chelsea - I think they had one shot on target - and we can feel proud of the performance."
