There were signs of encouragement in Tottenham’s performance at Stamford Bridge as the visitors had 12 shots to their opponents’ nine and enjoyed 54 per cent possession.
The defeat, however, coming four days after their exit from the Champions League was confirmed, means Spurs have now won only once in 10 in all competitions.
“If you want to criticise that then okay, I accept that,” Pochettino said.
“But I think there is nothing wrong. We are in a good position in the Premier League. We are out of the Champions League and that is a little bit tough and after Monaco I said maybe we cannot cope in both competitions.
“You saw a very different performance between Monaco and Chelsea – that happens because to be fresh to play in both competitions is difficult.
“We need to learn about that and start to win games.”
