Tottenham Defeated Arsenal Tactically – Mourinho


Jose MourinhoTottenham boss, Jose Mourinho has come out to react to his recent win vs Arsenal.

He simply revealed that his boys played from their hearts to claim all three points vs their North London rivals.

According to him, the game was more tactical than anything but even if Arsenal showed that they have improved, his boys gave their all to clinch maximum points.

He added that the team is happy because they made the fans happy ahead of the crunch fixture list to seal Europa League spot this season.

His words, “I think the game was more tactical than anything,”

“To be honest I think Mikel [Arteta] found a way for them to play, to be stable and to improve – they are improving and we felt that we should adapt slightly to them and I think we did it very well.

“Because how many times [Kieran] Tierney and [Hector] Bellerin normally reach the last third and how well they were controlled today. I think they were very controlled at that level.”

“Even in the first period of the second half when they had more of the ball and they were more in our half, we were quite comfortable in that situation.

“I think also the two midfielders, they did a great job and then we found our chances and great spirit, [that] really helped.

“I think during the game nobody thought about it, even myself I didn’t, but Arsenal had 48 hours more than us to rest, so it was hard but come from their hearts this effort, this battle.
