Tottenham fans frustrated by just how good Chelsea star played on Wednesday


Tottenham were outclassed by Chelsea for the second time in a week, losing 1-0 in North London – and 3-0 on aggregate. Tottenham fans are frustrated, annoyed they do not have a midfielder as good as Mateo Kovacic.

Antonio Conte took on his old side again, this time at home but having lost the first leg 2-0 – it was always going to be an uphill battle. Tottenham were without Son Heung-min, Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon for the clash.

Chelsea dominated without looking as though they were going to score plenty. It was Antonio Rudiger’s header, after a mistake from Pierluigi Gollini, that handed Chelsea another win – and another clean sheet.

Spurs were lacklustre, bereft of ideas and Conte looked uninterested on the sidelines. From the moment Rudiger scored, it looked as if there was no belief Spurs could get themselves out of the mire they find themselves in.









What do Tottenham fans think about Chelsea star Kovacic?

The biggest gulf in class was most evident in the middle of the park. Harry Winks has earned his chance to start, featuring alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Both were busy, making tackles, but they lacked the control.

The ability to dictate the tempo, keep the ball, technicality of both Jorginho and Kovacic. The latter was sensational, with WhoScored claiming he successfully completed 80 of his 85 passes and making two tackles.

Tottenham fans have discussed the difference in midfield – and the frustration that they lack a player like £40million (GOAL) signing Kovacic.

Like Kovacic ain’t even a guaranteed starter is he? He’s an incredible player, shows the levels apart. I’ve been desperately wanting Winks to play cause he’s been good under Conte but Kovacic is at least twice the player.

Kovacic would comfortably be our best CM and he’s rotated frequently for Chelsea

The difference between Spurs and Chelsea is huge. Outside of Kane and maybe Moura there is no quality. All over Chelsea they have quality. Rudiger and Kovacic aggressive, Mount and Silva class, Azpilacueta and Alonso intelligent, Lukaku dangerous. Miles apart at the moment.
