“Mistake, mistake, mistake” – Mourinho frustrated as Tottenham shoot themselves in the foot vs Everton

Jose Mourinho bemoans individual mistakes as Tottenham fall to Everton in the FA Cup

It was yet another frustrating trip to Merseyside for Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho. Spurs put in an excellent attacking performance but a number of mistakes at the back saw all that work undone.

While the match played out as a treat for neutrals, those affiliated to Tottenham would have been banging their heads in frustration. It is fair to say that Spurs have only themselves to blame for the defeat.

Speaking to BBC Sport (h/t Mirror), Mourinho is no different and is furious at his side for the ‘incredible’ errors they made. He pointed out that attacking football comes to nought if the defence cannot hold up their end of the bargain.

“Attacking football only wins matches when you don’t make more mistakes than you create.”

Mourinho shares the belief that Spurs shot themselves in the foot. Had the defence held firm, the tone of the result could have been so much different.

“The way we played, we should win comfortably. Attacking football and defensive mistakes.”

Good but not enough!

The Spurs boss also praised his players for getting themselves back into the game twice in normal time. However, it was not enough and Spurs will have to wait another year for a chance at the FA Cup.

“We created, we had great movement, we scored goals, created chances. Showed great character to fight against incredible mistakes.”

An excellent attacking display counted for nothing

Davinson Sanchez’s early opener put Spurs on course for a win. Everton, however, capitalized on three mistakes to turn the game on its head. Mourinho is under no doubt that the Toffees were gifted those opportunities.

“We were the best team at 1-0 and in five minutes it was mistake, mistake, mistake, goal, goal, goal.”

Despite the result, there is much to be taken from the performance, especially in attack. While we may have dropped out of one competition, there is still much to play for this season. Hopefully, lessons have been learned as we enter the tail end of the season.
