The manner of their 1-0 win against Dyche’s side suggested that Mourinho’s team are now made of sterner stuff
In the early days of his time in charge at Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho suggested that the squad he inherited from Mauricio Pochettino was perhaps a little too nice.
But the manner of their 1-0 win against Sean Dyche’s side suggested that Mourinho’s team are now made of sterner stuff.
In many ways it was a classic Mourinho approach - Spurs were solid at the back, hard-working and physical in midfield but with the prolific Son Heung-min, who now has a league-leading eight goals, alongside Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, there was always a threat.
After giving up a three goal lead to draw 3-3 with West Ham United in their last game, Mourinho felt they was a real strength in his team’s mental approach.
