Mourinho blames Tottenham bench for unlucky draw against Man.Utd


Tottenham were on the brink of snatching all three points against fellow top four hopefuls, Manchester United before Pogba came on to force a foul from Toby Alderwierld in the box, before Fernandez slotted home to salvage a draw for the more dominant side on the night.

Jose Mourinho has blamed the non availability of some of his players for the draw against Manchester United last night in the team’s first game since the outbreak of corona virus. The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura were all missing on the night, and the Portuguese said it affected the team in a way.

“Happy with things and unhappy with others, What did I like? I liked the team attitude, organisation, control, being solid. Giving to United what they don’t like. Unhappy with the fact that the way I was reading the game I had no bench to react to it. When they became more dominant we were tired up front and could not press. The players did fantastic work defensively they had two dangerous shots that Hugo Lloris saved and nothing else. Everything else was under control. For 70 minutes, when we had the energy, we were strong with the ball and we knew what we wanted to do. I have to admit for the last 15 minutes I would love to have had Lucas Moura here, Dele Alli here. The last 15 minutes were difficult for us. Lucas and Dele are players we need and we could feel that today. When you look to their bench and then to ours the difference in attacking options. Hopefully, they will be back for West Ham because in this moment it is very, very important to change players” Mourinho said.
