Jose Mourinho calls on his players to show killer instincts ahead of West Ham vs Tottenham

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has called upon on his players to display killer instincts in games as they prepare to take on West Ham United.

Tottenham have been going through a torrid run of form in the Premier League that has seen them drop to ninth place in the table. However, Mourinho & co. seem to have regained some momentum as they beat Wolfsberger AC convincingly in the UEFA Europa League earlier this week.

And heading into the London derby against the Hammers, Tottenham boss Mourinho has urged his players to display aggression and not give the opposition a chance in the game.

“Football is a game of emotions and when an opponent is, I’m sorry to use the word, almost dead and then you give them life, emotions change. What you cannot teach is to put the ball in the net.

“That is a fundamental part of the killer instinct and you can work the tactical combinations, the counter-attack combinations that keep the pressure high but in the end, you have to kill.”

Mourinho’s comments ring true considering that Tottenham have found it hard to kill off games on more than one occasion this season. The biggest example of Spurs’ inability to put games to bed came against West Ham in the reverse fixture as the Hammers came back from three goals behind to salvage a point.
