Tottenham Hotspur took on relegation-threatened Bournemouth last night in the Premier League, only to fall to a frustrating 0-0 draw at the Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries had a goal chalked off for handball and a late one-on-one saved by Hugo Lloris to keep the game scoreless.

Spurs were also denied an early penalty when Harry Kane was seemingly bundled to the ground by Josh King.

The Lilywhites struggled to even get out of their half in the first 45, with the likes of Winks, Lo Celso, and Sissoko unable to control possession in the middle of the park.

Mourinho decided to send Tanguy Ndombele on from the bench at half-time in order to add a spark of creativity, with the Frenchman looking extremely positive in flashes.

However, after benching him for every single game since the restart, Mourinho has now claimed that Ndombele was no better than any other player on the team last night.

In his post-match press conference today, Alasdair Gold reports Mourinho said: “Feeling was we are going to have the ball, space to play and the midfield players I had on the bench: Skipp, Gedson, Harvey, Tanguay I thought he was the one with the talent to move the ball. He was the same level as the team, not better or worse.”
