Tottenham’s defeat against Manchester United on Wednesday was an extremely disappointing performance from the Lilywhites with the team failing to show any of the attacking quality that had been on display since Jose Mourinho took charge.
However, the team delivered the perfect response to the defeat last weekend by thrashing Burnley 5-0 in North London.
Harry Kane has now revealed that the team wanted to correct some of the mistakes they made against Manchester United including starting the game with more intensity
Speaking to Gary Lineker on BBC’s Match of the Day on 7/12/19 from 10:35 pm on BBC 1: Kane said, “That was a really good win, coming off a disappointing performance in midweek.
“We wanted to start the game fast, get at them and the game went as well as it could.
“The whole performance was great from the team and that gave me the freedom to put a couple away.”
While Kane revealed that the new Spurs head coach had already made some tactical modifications, he admitted that the team hasn’t had time to adjust to his new ideas since they have had a game almost every three days since Mourinho arrived.
He added: “We’ve had so many games in a short space of time and we’ve not had too much time to train and work.
“Formation and how he wants us to play [has been discussed]. We’ve been scoring a few goals, we’re feeling good, hopefully, we can build on this.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Mourinho was visibly upset at the players’ lack of intensity in the first half against Manchester United and that is something he certainly seemed to fix as the players came out all guns blazing against Burnley. Hopefully, we start games on the front foot from now on and don’t drift back into the habit of making a slow start.
