In 2020-21, Tottenham dropped 10 points from winning places, which Jose Mourinho puts down to individual errors. Jose Mourinho cited ‘individual faults’ as the reason for Tottenham’s tendency to lose points from winning positions.
A disappointed Mourinho told Amazon Prime Sport, “Three or four big chances in the first half to have a different result, the biggest chance of the second half would have killed the game and then again we concede a completely avoidable goal.
We could destroy the game and we lose a man in the box again. That happens in set-pieces most of the time, it was in open play this time. Of course, it’s costing points, we’re winning especially away and then we don’t display the ambition to kill the game, and it happens several times that we concede in the last part of the game.
Some items are individual, based on individual attributes and individual errors. I can’t say anything more than that, generally. It’s nice that [soon] we will be playing. It’s not nice that we have 10 days after that game on Sunday. We just have to recognize that at this time, though.”
