Hugo Lloris says “tired” Tottenham Hotspur were disappointed not to win Sunday’s London derby after a goalless draw with Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

Spurs had chances to beat Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, but Son Heung-min could only direct his header at the Bosnian, whilst the Blues number two made a good save at the feet of Harry Kane.

Reigning PFA player of the year Eden Hazard had the best chance of the clash after his volley required a good save from Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham remained a mere four points behind leaders Leicester City and Manchester City following their stalemate with the defending champions.

But Spurs goalkeeper Lloris explained why the draw was tinged with disappointment.

“If you look at the context it’s a good point, but even with the tiredness in our side we were better than them,” Lloris told Tottenham’s website.

“We showed more qualities. We tried to play but unfortunately we couldn’t score and the feeling in the changing room is one of disappointment.

“On the pitch we feel that, despite the European game, we had control of the match. We weren’t as fresh as we normally are but at the end of the day when you can’t win it’s important not to lose.”

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League games since a 1-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season.
