I am not anxious about my future at Chelsea - Antonio Conte

Tottenham and Manchester United midfielders Dele Alli and Paul Pogba need to be given time to fulfil their undoubted potential, says Hugo Lloris. "We should have been 2-0 or 3-0 but instead conceded the goal in the last minute of the first half and that created a problem in the mind and our confidence".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insisted the difference between his team and Spurs on Sunday was the clinical edge of the visitors.

Pochettino, yet to win a trophy with Tottenham, said: "After 28 years it is important to win here".

There is good news for Spurs' first season at the new White Hart Lane, though.

Spurs' first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1990 opened up an eight-point gap to fifth-placed Chelsea, leaving Mauricio Pochettino's men in pole position for the fourth and final Champions League qualification berth.

"We nicknamed him lovingly "Golazo" (great goal) because he has a great talent, a great strike, technique and he makes the team play", Pochettino said.

But if I said now that Kevin De Bruyne should have no chance, I'd be lying. "That's obviously not my decision. However, De Bruyne shrugged off the added pressure of being favourites.

Abramovich, who bought the club in the summer of 2003, is facing the prospect of his club losing a number of key players at the end of the season - with just one year remaining on the contracts of Thibaut Courtois, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro, Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Olivier Giroud.

The Italian tactician lamented all season long about how his employers failed to back him up with the players he would have loved to bring to the club last summer. "He didn't play [for England against Italy during the worldwide break] and he came back to training with a big willingness to show his quality and I think he is ready to finish this season strong".

"Conte can't wait to leave Chelsea".

The figure of £306.3m sees a significant rise on 2016's £209.8m and is a result of increased TV revenue, their highest ever Premier League finish in 2016-17 and a Champions League group-stage campaign. We've thought it for six or seven months.

"Chelsea have spent and had times with incredible sides, but I think the owner, Roman [Abramovich], will look at them and think: 'I'm paying double in wages that Tottenham do and spent a hell of a lot of money in the transfer market compared to Spurs - and they are better than us!'"

"Whenever something bad happens in football or life, you have to find the positives".

"In the end, he's a great talent, only 21 years old, and sometimes we lose the focus on that".
