Jose Mourinho said Tottenham’s 1-0 London derby thrashing to Chelsea was significantly more “excruciating” as his previous club were granted a definitive punishment that was “hard to acknowledge”.
There didn’t seem, by all accounts, to be any grievances from Eric Dier after he stumbled Timo Werner in the main half and official Andre Marriner highlighted the spot.
Jorginho changed over from 12 yards out to give prevailing Chelsea a luxuriously merited Premier League triumph, which might have been more insistent in the driving precipitation at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday.
Chelsea made it seven focuses from a potential nine under new manager Thomas Tuchel, moving above Spurs into 6th spot.
Tottenham have now lost three successive matches and were innocuous without harmed commander Harry Kane as Mourinho endured consecutive home group vanquishes without precedent for his administrative profession.
However the ex-Blues manager felt his side had been hard done by.
He revealed to BT Sport: “It was somewhat of a battle yet what number of chances did they have? We didn’t have the ball, right, we didn’t make in the primary half, right. In any case, the battle was the punishment. In the end a punishment chooses the game.
“In the end they score a punishment which isn’t a punishment that you say is a risky circumstance, one on one, nearly scoring. It’s a punishment that is hard to acknowledge and to lose the game like this is somewhat excruciating.
“Yet, in the second half we were unique and Lucas [Moura] and [Erik] Lamela assisted with changing the dynamic. The inclination I have is that we kept together until the end. To get done with a positive soul makes a difference.”
Carlos Vinicius ought to have grabbed a moment that he headed wide from short proximity late on in his first beginning and Mourinho felt Spurs had the right to try not to lose three progressive Premier League games unexpectedly since November 2012.
“Vinicius is a player with an extraordinary soul yet his comprehension of how to press is something he’s as yet not happy with,” Mourinho added.
“At that point in the second half it was significantly more hard for them, we squeezed them much better and higher and in the second half I accept we merited somewhat more.”
