Troy Deeney has admitted that he is finding it hard to understand the criticism being levelled at Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur after they beat Arsenal 2-0 to move back to the top of the table on Sunday.
Mourinho defended the performance, insisting in his post-match press conference that his side had no reason to press high up the pitch and leave spaces for Mikel Arteta’s side to exploit.
Deeney claimed that there is no one right way to play football and explained how Tottenham often give the opposition a false pretence that they are in control of the game by handing them possession.
Watch what the Watford striker told said on talkSPORT Breakfast about Spurs’ performance in the North London Derby:
👏 “I like how Spurs play! It doesn’t have to be 47 passes for a goal.”
🤦♂️ “I can’t believe Spurs are top & we are looking to criticise.”
👊 “Spurs give you a false pretence that you’re in control then counter.”
