Jose Mourinho on whether Spurs have improved defensively since he took charge

Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, has been in charge of the club for almost one year after Daniel Levy hired him in late November 2019.

While Mourinho’s reign began with Tottenham holding on against West Ham despite initially leading 3-0, the most recent game saw them fall to Hammers pressure.

Tottenham went 3-0 up within 16 minutes in North London today, with Harry Kane netting twice after Heung-min Son scored inside the first minute.

However, a lacklustre second-half performance and a woeful final 15 minutes of defending saw the Lilywhites throw away that lead and the three points that came with it.

West Ham managed to stage a fightback through a Balbuena header and Davinson Sanchez own goal before a Gareth Bale miss and Lanzini screamer cemented a 3-3 result.

Despite the meltdown and the lack of consistent clean sheets of late, Mourinho claimed that his Tottenham side had improved defensively since he took over last year.

He said (Charlie Eccleshare): “Even defensively the team is much better than it was before.”
