Tottenham Hotspur managed to scrape a third consecutive Premier League victory today as they battled Storm Dennis to play away to Aston Villa.

Spurs are now just one point behind their London rivals Chelsea in the race for top four, with the Blues in action at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night against Man United.

Tottenham also went back above Sheffield United into fifth with their three-point haul today, although it took them until the 93rd-minute to secure them.

Mourinho named Heung Min Son, Steven Bergwijn, and Lucas Moura in attack again today, with Dele Alli also always arriving late on the scene.

Without Harry Kane or a recognised striker within the senior squad, Mourinho is having to make do with what he’s got up front.

However, the head coach claims that the problem with Moura and Son is that they have to play every game.

He said (Football London): “The problem with Son and Lucas, the problem with especially these two guys is they have to play 90 minutes every game. That’s the problem and if they run out of fuel then we are in trouble but their quality as players is fantastic, their attitude towards the team is absolutely incredible and I am so, so pleased for them.

“A team without Harry is finding obviously difficulties, the difficulties are the nature of the Premier League, but in the middle of the difficulties, we are finding a different way to play football. We are finding a different way to create opportunities and to score enough goals to put ourselves in a position to fight for a good position in the table.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

I would argue that Troy Parrott is ready to be rotated in every now and then, even if it’s just to give one of the above a rest from the bench.
