Jose Mourinho Says His side Deserves a Win to even Draw
Defending Champions of the English Premier League Liverpool ended Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur five games unbeaten run. Jose Mourinho says his side did well but did not convert chances and that’s why they lose.
Football fans has been speaking on the comment he made and this is because Tottenham did make more chances than the host Liverpool. Jose Mourinho in his usual way also complained of the officiating.
Liverpool made a total of 17 shots while Tottenham made only 8 shots, Liverpool had 74 ball possession while Mourinho’s side had 26 ball possession. Tottenham only won the fouls which were 9 fouls to 8 fouls, so now the question is how was Tottenham the better the team as claimed by the special one Jose Mourinho?
Steven Bergwijn hit the post and Harry Kane missed from close range in a dramatic few minutes in the second half. Spurs were left to rue the missed opportunities as a late Roberto Firmino goal clinched a hard-fought 2-1 win for the Reds which move them to the top.
And Mourinho feels his side deserved all three points for their performance. According to him, he said: “So close to winning, not so close to a draw.” “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.
Jose Mourinho also said he had told Klopp that the “best team lost” and questioned the German’s animated antics on the touchline. But Klopp said that’s his opinion.
Liverpool will face Crystal Palace in their next game while Leicester City host Tottenham in the King Power Stadium.
