In the opening 16 minutes, Tottenham led 3-0
If Bell scored that goal, would the game be different? Mourinho said:
"It's a pity that he didn't score the team's fourth goal, which is cruel. We could have killed the game, but this is football." Mourinho emphasized:
Mourinho said: "I am more willing to praise my opponents than criticizing my players. Similarly, instead of talking about my players and my personal feelings here, I am more willing to analyze the game and discuss with the players. It must be said, They (West Ham United) have incredible beliefs. Of course, we did not handle all of this, or we were not strong enough to handle the last 10 minutes."
"While we were in control of the game, we let them score a goal and their morale came up at that time. My kids need to be stronger psychologically. At the last moment, we lost 2 points.
"To be honest, I don't think fatigue is the cause of all this. It's hard to say that we didn't win because of complacency. Most of our conceded goals this season were set kicks or penalty kicks. Sanchez performed well this game, but He unfortunately scored an own goal. This is football. This is a game that could have been pocketed, but we lost 2 points." Mourinho said. In the official game of 20 years of coaching career, Mourinho took a 3-goal lead for the first time but did not win.
Sun Xingmin scored a goal in this campaign, continuing the hot state of the season. The Korean stars couldn't believe what happened after the game: "All of our players were stunned by the result. We think we deserve three points. We played very well until the last 10 minutes of the game. This is really too unexpected. This is football and this kind of thing should never happen."
