Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has accused his players of lacking ‘ambition’ after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Spurs missed the chance to move up to third – and close the gap on league leaders Liverpool to four points – after Romain Saiss’ 86th-minute header earned Wolves a share of the spoils.
Tanguy Ndombele had put Spurs ahead, firing home from the edge of the area with only 57 seconds on the clock but failed to build on the lead, not managing a single shot on target after the 21st minute of the game.
It means Spurs, who have now gone four games without a win, sit fifth after they failed to take advantage of Liverpool’s draw earlier in the day.
Mourinho’s side have now dropped nine points this season with goals conceded in the final 10 minutes of a game – the most of any Premier League side.
“I am frustrated with the result, we had control of game, we had 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t.
“It’s not just about not scoring but also not being dangerous and ambitious and for me that’s the problem.
“But I don’t think is very, very obvious to go in that direction and not to go in other directions. The other direction for me is you score a goal in the first minute, you have 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t.
“It’s disappointing (to concede as they did) and tomorrow we are going to have a similar meeting of other meetings we’ve had and we’re going to practise the same thing we practised that we have after other situations. But we have 89 minutes to score more goals.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
