Jermaine Jenas was critical of the performance of the Tottenham Hotspur players during the defeat to Chelsea.

Spurs had the opportunity to overtake their London rivals in the Premier League table with fourth place up for grabs, however they failed to show the desire to move into the Champions League qualification places ahead of Christmas.

Jose Mourinho was facing his former employers for the first time since taking up the head coach role at Spurs and it was one of his old players, Frank Lampard who had the last laugh.

Jenas described the performance as men against boys after Chelsea dominated the proceedings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The former Spurs midfielder admitted that the scoreline could have been more than 2-0 with the home side failing to pose a threat to the Blues.

Spurs had gone into the match in relatively good form having won four of their last five Premier League games and now must look to focus on the visit of Brighton on Boxing Day.

Jenas told BBC Radio 5 Live on 22/12/19 at 18:31: “Chelsea deserved their win, it could have been more than two. Spurs were nowhere near it. It felt like men against boys, every Chelsea player was on top form today and Spurs were not up to it.”
