Tottenham Update: Mourinho aims dig at Alli once again, unhappy with the officials against Chelsea

Jose Mourinho-Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Chelsea last night and manager Jose Mourinho has taken a slight dig at midfielder Dele Alli once again.

The Portuguese manager suggested during his post-match presser that the 24 year old England international is yet to show his best qualities for the London club and his dip in form is one of the reasons why Tottenham are struggling in attack.

He said: “Reguilon means something for our attacking football. Harry Kane means something to our attacking football. Giovani Lo Celso means something and a good Dele Alli that we haven’t had yet also means something to that. It also is about not having the players to change things. It’s also about confidence.”

Alli has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and he was expected to leave the club last month.

It will be interesting to see if the midfielder can turn his career around at Tottenham and convince Jose Mourinho of his quality in the coming months.

Unhappy with the officials

Meanwhile, the Tottenham boss was unhappy with the officiating during Tottenham’s game with Chelsea.

The Spurs boss revealed after the game that he has spoken to the referee Andre Marriner regarding his performance and he informed the match officials that he is unhappy.

Mourinho feels that Tottenham were judged unfairly during the game.

In reality, the Londoners were thoroughly outplayed by Chelsea and they deserved to end up on the losing side.

Spurs are now winless in eight of their last 10 league games and they will have to turn their form around quickly if they want to secure Champions League qualification for the next season.
