Mourinho reveals why Tottenham threw away a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 with West Ham
Jose Mourinho, the Tottenham Hotspur manager, has said his side’s inability to deal with set-pieces cost them three points against West Ham.
Spurs raced into a three-goal lead in the opening 20 minutes of their Premier League clash on Sunday.
Harry Kane scored twice and provided an assist for Heung-Min Son.
However, even with the introduction of Gareth Bale, Tottenham failed to extend their hand.
Fabian Balbuena, Davinson Sanchez’s own goal, and a surprise from Manuel Lanzini ensured the Hammers drew 3-3.
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Of course I have to analyze the second half and have to do it internally, but for you, I prefer to say football happened, and praise West Ham’s belief.
“It is not easy to be losing 3-0 and be dominated to keep the belief. I knew they are a different team to last season, but losing three goals is a big punishment and eventually deserved.
“I found already by analyzing from the touchline; some things are completely out of context, once more an indirect free-kick, the own goal, the third is a free-kick and second ball, a rebound.
“The game was under control; we had Harry Kane to score the fourth when he hit the post, Gareth Bale to kill the game. The game was more to the fourth goal, but that’s football.”
