Tottenham scuppered their chance to break the Wembley hoodoo as Chelsea beat them 2-1 in an engrossing contest on Sunday.
Spurs were the favorites coming into the match with an opening day win under their belt. However, they failed to come up with the goods against a tactically astute Chelsea side.
Their disappointment was made evident by Dele Alli’s reaction to Chelsea’s second goal. The Tottenham man broke down with disbelief having tried his utmost during the match.
Spurs, who had dominated proceedings throughout the game, failed to convert chances and were made to pay when Marcos Alonso struck the eventual winner.
Mauricio Pochettino commented post match that Spurs were the better team across the 90 minutes, but were guilty of not being clinical enough.
The attacking midfielder was highlighted by the Argentine manager as one of the most hardworking players on the pitch. Perhaps it was the reason behind such a detrimental reaction from the Tottenham number 20.
