Poch proud, but Chelsea were ‘more clinical’

Mauricio Pochettino Chelsea

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was happy with the performance, if not the result, as Chelsea won Saturday's FA Cup semi-final.

The Blues emerged 4-2 winners at Wembley to set up a place in the final, but the Argentinean certainly doesn't think his Spurs side were inferior.

"Congratulations to Chelsea," Pochettino said. "We dominated the game but they were more clinical than us.

"I feel proud, we were fantastic in the way we played and in our philosophy. They had five shots and scored four goals and we score only two.

"It is important to speak about the moments of the game. We fought a lot. We tried and scored.

"To go into the changing room 2-1 down was difficult and again we played well in the second half and scored but then they came back."
