The title hopes, which were a long-shot but still real, were snuffed out on the enemy territory where they had suffered a similar fate in 2016, when an incendiary 2-2 draw containing 12 yellow cards secured the Premier League for Leicester City. "I need to apologise to him and all the officials". We need to enjoy playing football. "I think that is the most important, we need to accept that we are with our emotion", Pochettino added. In the Premier League no one game is easy. I didn't want to justify the defeat and complain with the referee.
Pochettino's men emerged 3-1 victors in the reverse fixture earlier this season at Wembley and won by the same scoreline at Stamford Bridge last campaign.
"I think all your quality English players like your [Harry] Winks and your Kanes and your Allis who have their sights set on winning Premier League titles, I personally would think 'he thinks we're [that far away]'".
That result, secured by a Dele Alli double and Christian Eriksen's opener, was Tottenham's first win at Chelsea for 28 years and Son believes his side can repeat the feat if they maintain their mentality.
"No, all that happened on the pitch stays on there", he said.
"We don't have to change anything".
"He's doing well but we can not say if he's going to be available for the weekend, or for the next week or the games against Borussia Dortmund or Southampton", said Pochettino.
The Blues are coming off that tough defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday, and Maurizio Sarri's team finds itself in sixth place with a 15-5-6 record and 50 points.
Spurs, in contrast, drove out of West London knowing the title must wait at least another year, and the fight is now about the top four and the Champions League.
"The players want to win always but especially for a London derby".
