Hodgson said: “What is a fair result? Results are results. It is not a question of fairness.
“If you’re asking me did I think the team did as much as I could have asked of them and gave Tottenham a tough game to get their victory? Yes I think we did.
“But the bottom line is that despite the fact we created some chances and opportunities we couldn’t get the ball past their keeper who played very well and without actually peppering our goal with shots or forcing our goal into save after save they did.”
