Former Arsenal midfielder, Stuart Robson believes that Jose Mourinho needs to move away from his counter-attacking style of play if Tottenham are to have a shot at winning the league title this season.

Spurs opted to defend deep against both Manchester City and Chelsea, hitting them on the break when they won the ball back.

The approach certainly worked, with the Lilywhites keeping clean sheets in both games and coming away from the tough matches with four points.

However, Robson believes that Tottenham were a little fortunate to not concede against City and even suggested that Mourinho does not know his best centre-back pairing as of yet.

The former Arsenal man did receive push back from Gabriele Marcotti and Julien Laurens, who pointed out that the North Londoners have the best defence in the league.
