Frustrated Mou criticises Spurs stars

English Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho was critical of his players after the club's top-four hopes took a knock on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs were minutes away from moving into the top four before Joe Willock struck a late equaliser for Newcastle United to force a 2-2 draw.

Mourinho was critical of the mistakes his side comittted as St James' Park

"I am frustrated," he boss told BBC Radio 5Liv.

"We needed to win the match and we came to win. We were not far [but] at the same time, we created instability with so many individual defensive mistakes. We always gave Newcastle a chance to be in the game.

"We had the biggest chance of the game to make it 3-1 and kill it [when Kane hit the woodwork] and then we concede a goal the next minute."

When asked why the team makes so many mistake despite Mourinho's defensive reputation, he added, "Same coach, different players.

"We work well, we work hard. But there are mistakes which I probably shouldn't even call mistakes because they are related to qualities that players have. You can analyse it easily."
