Gary Neville has admitted to his self-titled podcast that he was shocked to see Tottenham Hotspur fans booing at full-time against Chelsea.

Booing at full-time

Spurs were beaten 3-0 by Thomas Tuchel’s side and the supporters who stayed were keen to express their displeasure at full-time.

Tottenham were thoroughly outplayed by Chelsea in the second-half.

But Neville felt Spurs did enough in the opening 45 minutes to have avoided being booed off by their own supporters.

“There was only very few Spurs fans in the stadium at the end of the game, but I was surprised by the boos,” he said.

“It’s been a good start to the season. I thought they would have accepted their team did very well in the first half and Nuno had them on the front foot, but they were playing against a top, top side in the second.

The problem for Tottenham arguably wasn’t the defeat, given the strength of Chelsea’s team, but the manner of the way they lost.

Spurs did indeed begin the game strongly, but after the break they were completely outplayed.

It was all too easy for Chelsea, with Tottenham’s fragile confidence levels exposed once again.

Dele Alli was out jumped for a corner, before a wicked deflection from Ngolo Kante’s long shot took the game beyond them.

Antonio Rudiger’s late strike added a gloss on the scoreline for Chelsea, with their fans even starting to shout ole after every pass towards the end.

That must have been particularly galling for Spurs supporters.

And while Tottenham’s opening to the campaign has hardly been a disaster, frustration is starting to build again at the North London club after a poor week of results.
