Jose Mourinho insisted that his Chelsea side more than deserved their point after they held Tottenham Hotspur to a goalless draw at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Asmir Begovic was the busier goalkeeper in the first half, as the Chelsea shot-stopper saved efforts from the likes of Son Heung-min and Mousa Dembele in north London.

At the other end, Eden Hazard – deployed up front for the Blues – forced Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris into a reflex save from a volley in what was Chelsea’s only shot on target against the Lilywhites.

Speaking to BT Sport after Sunday’s draw, Mourinho said: “I am more than happy with the performance. I am happy with the team collectively.

“It was the best Chelsea performance of the season, against a dangerous team. My players did everything to try and interpret my defensive ideas the with ball.”

The Portuguese coach then added: “We had control of the game and had the best chances. My team deserved more than a point.”
