Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has hit out at Chelsea by labelling them a small team following their Premier League draw, Daily Star reports.
The 43-year-old was full of praise for his side given that they managed to come away with a point in the match against the current champions of England.
Due to their recent form, Pochettino admitted that he felt the Blues were a smaller team and should have picked up all three points against their opponents.
“You got the feeling that Chelsea were a small team, and Tottenham can win every game we play,“ he said.
“It’s very difficult, though. We’re the youngest team in the Premier League and the maturity we showed today we have shown in different games.
“We have to feel happy. It’s a good thing that, maybe, we are a bigger club than Chelsea or that we deserve more.“
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has seen his side struggle heavily despite only lifting the title earlier this year.
His squad have already picked up seven losses from a total of 17 possible matches as they sit 14th on the league table, 12 points away from Arsenal in fourth place.
Pochettino also added that a number of his players were tired given that some of them only returned from their Europa League victory over Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Friday morning.
