Gus Poyet disagrees with Jose Mourinho, claims Tottenham are in mini-crisis

Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Football.london), former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gus Poyet has claimed that the club are in a mini-crisis despite what manager Jose Mourinho claims.

Tottenham, having been at the top of the table in December, have dropped down to ninth place in the standings on the back of a poor run. Mourinho’s men lost 2-1 to West Ham United this past weekend and are now six points behind the Hammers who sit fourth.

Despite the run of results, Mourinho was defiant post-match, claiming that there was no crisis situation at the club. Poyet, though, has disagreed with the Portuguese tactician. The ex-Chelsea and Tottenham midfielder reckons that Spurs are in a troublesome situation as things stand.

“I think, if you only look at the results, they are bad and there is a mini crisis. In terms of playing, there are moments in every game. But they were not like that before.”

Addressing the chances of Tottenham finishing in the top four, Poyet was of the opinion that Spurs, as well as north London rivals Arsenal, will find it difficult to move past the likes of Everton, West Ham and finish in top four.

“For Spurs and Arsenal to have four teams ahead of them who are not normally in the top six, it’s a big problem for them. Spurs have the [Carabao] cup, it’s massive for [Jose] Mourinho and Tottenham as a club, and then the European competition, which they have to go until the end.”

Tottenham face a huge challenge to turn things around in the coming weeks. The Carabao Cup does represent a chance to end our trophy drought. But missing out on Champions League football for back-to-back campaigns could be detrimental, especially with finances already affected by the pandemic.
