Jose Mourinho says his side’s inability to put away bug scoring chances cost them against Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Steven Bergwijn hit the post and Harry Kane missed from close range in a dramatic few minutes in the second half.
Spurs was left to rue the missed opportunities as a late Roberto Firmino goal clinched a hardfought 2-1 win for the Reds which move them to the top.
And Mourinho feels is side deserved all three points for their performance.
“So close to winning, not so close to a draw,” a visibly frustrated Mourinho told Amazon Prime after the match.
“We missed the chances, we had the chances, had the game under control. A draw would be a bad result so you can imagine how we feel with a defeat.
“Liverpool didn’t look like a team that is champion, European champion, world champion. That difference was not on the pitch.”
As the referee blew the full-time whistle, cameras showed Mourinho and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp involved in a touchline exchange that seemingly ended amicably.
When asked what was shared, Mourinho said he had told Klopp that the “best team lost” and questioned the German’s animated antics on the touchline.
“He [Klopp] disagreed, but that’s his opinion,” Mourinho added.
Liverpool now faces a tough test away to Crystal Palace next in the Premier League whilst Spurs host Leicester City.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
