"I think that is the most important, we need to accept that we are with our emotion. I need to apologise to him and all of the officials".

"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]'".

"It's a hard place to play and it's not easy to get the three points there but we didn't perform well".

"It was an even game, but we didn't create too much". "In my mind I still believe I'm right but in the way that I behaved, it's not right". I feel sorry for that [Dean being dropped] because I wanted to see him and apologise in person.

Pochettino, 46, said he had relayed this information to his players both ahead of the Burnley game and since, but the performance, as in their 2-1 defeat by Watford in September, suggested a deeper issue that would take time to fix. I didn't want to justify the defeat and complain with the referee.

"Tottenham Hotspur - it's happened again" thundered from all four sides of Stamford Bridge after Kieran Trippier's late comedy own goal secured a 2-0 win for Chelsea, which lifted the thunder clouds over the club and manager Maurizio Sarri.

Spurs are still without injured star Dele Alli.

Iran launches cruise missile from submarine during drill
Iranian media said the missile was an upgraded version of the Nasr-1 missile the country had showcased in 2008. The maneuvers came as USA aircraft carriers returned to the region after a long absence.

"Last season we won 3-1 there".

Asked if he would be supporting Millwall against Brighton to improve the chances of playing in the new stadium sooner, Pochettino said laughed: "I don't know".

"We don't have to change anything".

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.

Spurs will most certainly have the edge over Chelsea going into this match and given that Pochettino has a packed midfield, it might very well be that Jorginho has yet another poor show for the Blues.

"The players want to win always but especially for a London derby".
