Jose Mourinho speaks after the Brighton and Hove Albion loss

Can Tottenham Hotspur turn things around

Manager Jose Mourinho says that the team is currently suffering from a loss of confidence and there’s low self esteem amongst the players in the camp at the moment. Throughout the game Brighton dominated as Graham Potter’s men took the deserving three points.

It needs to be said that 1-0 is still a respectable scoreline for Tottenham Hotspur as the seagulls missed a host of golden opportunities to seal the match much before. The most notable one being Connolly’a easy tap which he squashed as Toby Alderweireld slid in to clear the ball off the line.

Tottenham Hotspur have registered just two wins out of their last nine Premier League games. They’re currently at sixth position level on point’s with Chelsea but they have a match in hand. However their next game is against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea who will be looking to capitalise on Spurs poor run at the moment.

Every team in the Premier League has these ups and these downs. Of course now, we’re in a difficult moment with results, injuries and self-esteem. A team with confidence is much better than a team with sadness. At this time, we have all these problems which sooner or later will blow over.

At the end of the season, we’ll see where we are in the league and with the cup games that we’re going to play.”

“I saw two different halves,” Mourinho added. “The first half, where I saw immediately we made two mistakes in a row. They hit the post from one, the other one was a goal. The boys felt too much the goal that we conceded in the first half. It was a sad half. In the second half, especially in the last 30 minutes, I saw a team with a different soul.
