And Victor Moses extended Chelsea's 26-year unbeaten run against Spurs at Stamford Bridge with a close-range finish in the 51st minute.

Spurs' high press caused Chelsea serious problems in the first half, but Conte said he would continue to ask his players to play the ball out from the back.

"I think Spurs will improve", said Sutton on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5live on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, November 28, 2016). "They scored [a second goal] and for us it was impossible, but I think it was a very competitive game". I want to do and see some situations that we work on during the training sessions.

That contest saw Antonio Conte's side concede for the first time during their sequence of victories, while taking their tally at the opposite end of the field to 29 in 13 games.

Jurgen Klopp spoke of the title race earlier in the month, and suggested that it's too early to decide. That was hard, that was tough to be out of the Champions League.

Moses, who revealed that he now "feels at home" following his match victor against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, is reportedly a target for Barcelona and could be tempted into making a switch to Camp Nou should a formal offer be made.

The 25-year-old has scored seven goals in 16 matches in all competitions for the Blues this season.

"To have more possession, more shots and to create the best chances at Chelsea, it's a good point to say: ok, we are in a good way".

"Yeah, I have definitely found a home at Chelsea". It's my club. I'm pleased the manager has given me a chance to express myself.

" I am pleased for the players, we have another type of confidence and are working a lot".

'Everyone knows we probably played better than Chelsea over the 90 minutes but we've come away with nothing and that's hard, ' he said. When we do tactics, he's very passionate and demands. That is probably the best back five - with the 'keeper - out of the top six teams.

The Blues played with more pace and guile in the second half to secure their seventh successive Premier League win.
