"Yesterday (Monday), I was involved in training more than normally and, of course, the players feel disappointed, we all feel disappointed but we need to be ready for the next game because the competition doesn't wait".

"That is what anxious me", he added.

The north London club are now just six points behind league leaders Liverpool, but their title hopes suffered a huge blow in defeat to Burnley at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino conceded it is "impossible" for Tottenham to fight Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title following back-to-back defeats.

Pochettino would not reveal what Dean had said to him during their confrontation following the defeat.

"We showed on Saturday that we are a good team yes, we have good quality yes, but it's not enough to win a title like the Premier League and that is the reality".

"At the same time I need to apologise to Mike Dean".

"No, all that happens on the pitch must be there", he said."When I was a player, always when I had a problem with my team-mate or with the opponent, I loved to fix the problem on the pitch and then outside, it's finished". 'For me it's not important because I don't take it personal. "All that happened on the pitch, I'll never translate off it". When your heart rate is so high you need to be careful how you take words.

Match official Dean has been redirected from fourth official duties in Tottenham's game at Chelsea to avoid any potential for further conflict with Pochettino.

Chelsea kept their hopes of a top four finish alive and eased the pressure on their under-fire manager Maurizio Sarri with a 2-0 win over London rivals Spurs tonight at Stamford Bridge.

"Chelsea had one shot on target and one goal and we didn't shoot - it's hard that way to win and we weren't solid enough".
