Tottenham manager Nuno admits 'lot of things went wrong' against Chelsea

Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo admits a lot went wrong for his team against Chelsea on Sunday.

Spurs started the game well but eventually went down 3-0.

"A lot of things went wrong," Nuno told BBC. "Let's start with the first half - I think it was a good game, competitive. We were on the the front foot, started pressing high, creating problems and had chances.

"In the second half, the set piece and goal changes the game. Then it becomes much harder, the game totally changed and Chelsea took control and were the better team in the second half.

"It's difficult, but I'm proud of the first half and of all the game because we had troubles in team and the players went to their limits.

"We knew through the game that we would have problems [with fatigue], but the boys went and tried find solutions and tried to give energy with the subs. But it was a tough opponent in front of us.

"We know we have a lot of things to improve and are working to improve."
