Sarri and Pochettino have attracted plaudits, despite sharing the unwanted distinction of not having won any silverware in their managerial careers.

Tottenham 3-0 Chelsea Maurizio Sarri labelled Chelsea's defending a "disaster" following a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday evening.

The expense of the construction of Tottenham's new stadium at White Hart Lane and the continued uncertainty over when they will play there may have contributed to Pochettino being unable to end Spurs' 10-year wait for a trophy. Don't believe them, not from what I know anyway.' He could not, however, provide any news on the prospect of signing a new contract, with Spurs supporters nervous about losing one of their best players.

Earlier this week, reports in France claimed that Chelsea and Madrid have reached an initial agreement to sell Hazard for €190 million (£170m).

"Sometimes there are the conditions for winning". Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min scored as Chelsea lost for the first time under Sarri in the Premier League.

Christian Eriksen has played down talk of him quitting Tottenham, but he has no update on his contract situation. "I am not talking about the defenders, I am talking about the offensive players pressing very badly. I only answered a question".
