Tottenham players have lost points again. They led with a goal by Harry Kane in the match against Fulham, but the guests managed to win a point thanks to a goal by Ivan Cavaliero in the finish It was another disappointing match for Tottenham, who have recorded only one triumph (four draws and two defeats) since December 6 (when they were at the helm of the Premier League).
They are also worried about the way they remain without victories, they dropped as many as 10 points in situations in which they were the first to gain an advantage in the game. Jose Mourinho is also aware of that, but he thinks that his team played well enough to defeat Fulham.
Still, he believes they definitely need to get better. "It wasn't good enough, but enough to win. Not good enough because I think we have to play better and more consistently, but good enough because we created four or five great opportunities, good enough because Lloris had a quiet evening," said the Portuguese expert.
Heung-Min Son failed to double the advantage of the Spurs at the start of the second half, he hit the post. If he had entered the list of scorers, it would be difficult for Fulham to return to the match and reach a point on the new White Hart Lane, but this time the Tottenham team also wasn't lucky.
The striker from South Korea is shining this season in tandem with Harry Kane, but the impression is that they lack the support of the rest of the team.
Mourinho on his team
"In the first half, we had the opportunity to solve the game.
Areola was also responsible for some things. In the second half, we had the best chance to close the game, but when you don't do that, you can't concede a goal the way we did." "The same story has been with us since the beginning of the season.
We can talk about how we can't close the game and today it was clear that we should have done it in the first half, but then go back to the goals we conceded and it's hard to adjust. ", he added He once again drew attention to the mentality and quality of the players.
"I think that certain things have to do with the characteristics of the players. These are also difficult things. Some problems also exist in the organization of the team, but some things also depend on individual skills, abilities, and that is simply the case," said the Portuguese.
When it comes to the transfer period, Mourinho does not expect any changes. "No, I don't expect them," the Tottenham coach was brief. The next match Tottenham will play on Sunday (15.05), and the opponent is Sheffield United.
Chris Wilder's team reached the first victory of the season and they will surely try to make life difficult for the Spurs on their Bramall Lane. Victory is imperative for Mourinho.
