“I thought we dominated” – Frank Lampard gives his verdict on Spurs stalemate

Chelsea were held to a goalless draw by a Jose Mourinho lead Tottenham yesterday in the Premier League.

The point meant Mourinho’s side remain top of the league, and Chelsea are third just two points behind them.

It was a case of job done for Mourinho and his Spurs side last night. They defended deep with large numbers and played for a draw in the hope of nicking a winner.

Chelsea dominated them with 61% of the possession and should have scored a few clear cut chances to win the game.

They out-played Spurs with better quality and Mourinho will know he left Stamford Bridge last night as a lucky man.

Lampard knows Chelsea should have won the game and speaks about dominating large periods of it. But a point and a clean sheet against the team currently top of the league is far from a bad result at all, and the Blues boss has been taking the positives.

As reported by Football London, Lampard said:

“I thought we dominated big parts of the game.

“Everything that we talked of before the game in terms of nullifying their counter attacking threat we did really well, so that part off the game was fantastic.

“We almost gifted them one at the end and I thought we created enough. It is difficult to create against Tottenham when they have a low block, the whole team defending centrally. We had to try to go round them and try crosses and have shots, but it is hard. You have to try to stop counter attacking in transitions. I thought that part of our game was excellent.

“Sometimes you rely on a bit of magic, sometimes when you have that dominance it can happen. I am sort of balanced after the game. Big parts were great, hence the clean sheet. But a game we maybe should have won.

“It’s clear that Tottenham, when they play against this type of game they try to adapt the style of being organised and counter attack. The manager sets that tone.

“They have great players in those areas to play in that way. Kane and Son we know about. We were at home, we wanted to control the game, we did.

“We could have had a bit more magic or something drop for us at the top of the pitch, there was only really one team for the majority of the game who was searching and that was us.

“We have been playing pretty well and we wanted to win. In the end we didn’t quite have enough at the top end to do that.”
