Derby boss Jewell: Berbatov the difference for Spurs

Derby County boss Paul Jewell admits Dimitar Berbatov was the difference for Tottenham after Saturday's 3-0 defeat.

He said: "I think my team might have looked a lot better if I had been able to bring Berbatov on as well. But we know all about him, he is a world-class player.

"But their silky football was nowhere to be seen for an hour - and I don't mean that to be disrespectful to Tottenham.

"I think we competed very well, but they are better footballers than us. Technically they are better than us.

"For the first hour I think we had them rattled but once the first goal goes in they look like a different team - and so did we."
