Jose Mourinho points fingers at injuries and referee after Tottenham lose to Chelsea

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has pointed towards the injury list and the referee’s performance after his team lost to Chelsea.

Tottenham slumped to another loss – a third in a row in the league – as Chelsea beat Mourinho’s men 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The defeat meant we are now 14 points below league leaders Manchester City, with any lingering hopes of a title challenge fading fast.

It was another insipid performance by the team, especially in the attacking sense, but Mourinho, in typical fashion came out with excuses, pointing towards injuries as a result of the poor display, while also taking a sly dig at Dele Alli in the process.

“(Sergio) Reguilon means something for our attacking football. Harry Kane means something to our attacking football. Giovani Lo Celso means something and a good Dele Alli that we haven’t had yet also means something to that.

“It also is about not having the players to change things. It’s also about the confidence.”

With the game decided on a penalty for a silly challenge by Eric Dier on Timo Werner, Mourinho also seemed to question the referee’s performance on the night. (h/t Eurosport)

“I consider him one of the best referees in the Premier League. I care for him and one I have big admiration for. That gives me a good position to tell him I did not like his performance.”

While it is true that not having Harry Kane and Sergio Reguilon does impact the team, that should not be an excuse for the team to perform the way they did.

There were no ideas, there was no structure to any play. It was all too disjointed. It is time for Mourinho to consider changing his methods up.
