Here's the story of Chelsea's victory over Tottenham using Antonio Conte's face

But I understand that we need to talk, everyone needs to talk. "The team played really well and it is not fair to blame Wembley because Wembley is one of the best, if not the best, places to play football", said Pochettino.

"The opportunities we created we didn't score, but the most important thing is the performance because it is only the beginning of the season".

Chelsea went to Wembley supposedly in the depths of crisis following the opening-day defeat by Burnley at Stamford Bridge and with the saga over Diego Costa's future being played out as a distracting backdrop.

Courtois is aware of head coach Antonio Conte's comments that they don't want to be in the desperate position of two season ago where they finished 10th. "I chose to take it and it went well".

"I am only explaining the game today".

"It's true they tried to defend deeper and go on the counter-attack with Morata and Willian".

"I must be pleased", he told the media. I think we are doing very well, I think we work very hard in pre-season now, it was just a bit unfortunate that we had suspended and injured players, some players left, so it's not easy for us in pre-season. "They fully deserved to be in front after the first period in the game". But it was not until Spurs grew into the game that they took the lead, Alonso pasting a brilliant free-kick past Hugo Lloris from 25 yards.

He added: "I am not frustrated". "I think when you have more time, maybe you can have better ideas, more possibilities in the period".

Chelsea's two shots on target delivered two goals, with Conte's makeshift team delivering a performance from "fighters", without Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill and other notable absentees.

Tottenham dominated for large spells after the first goal and Thibaut Courtois was the busier keeper, denying Harry Kane and Ben Davies during a spell of sustained first-half pressure.

The spectators at Wembley surely had a flawless Sunday afternoon, and after this game, the reigning champions proved that, despite all the difficulties, they still have to be considered when there is some debate about the possible victor of the English Premier League.
