‘Tottenham is a better team’ – Mourinho not about to get carried away by 3-1 victory

Jose Mourinho admitted that his side did enough to win against Ludogorets but the Spurs boss did not appear to be overly thrilled with the performance.

Unsurprisingly, Mourinho named a much stronger side than the one that started against Royal Antwerp last week and his players responded as they started the game with much more intensity.

The Bulgarian side could not get near their opponents for the majority of the first-half, with the North Londoners racing into a two-goal lead within the first half-hour.

Harry Kane got the first goal with a well-placed header from a Lucas Moura corner, before laying one on a plate for the Brazilian to tap in with a lovely low cross.

Ludogorets got a goal back early in the second half but Giovani Lo Celso settled the away side’s nerves just ten minutes later as substitutes, Son Heung-min and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg combined to set up the Argentine.

When asked if it was a case of his side putting in a good display or Ludogorets putting in a weak one, the Spurs boss told Football.London: “Tottenham is a better team, with better players, we didn’t need to play very, very well to win the game.

“We did our job, we played serious, we took it serious, we played with great attacking force, starting with Harry Kane.

“Ludogorets is not a weak team, we are better than them and we showed this. We have to try to do the same when we play them in London.”
