Mourinho rubbishes claims Spurs remain mentally brittle

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has rubbished claims his team remains mentally brittle.

Tottenham threw away a 3-0 lead in the final 10 minutes of Sunday's Premier League clash with West Ham, with Manuel Lanzini denying them victory with the last kick of the game.

"That denomination is not important for me. The past is not important for me. The future is of course important for me," he said.

"What can I say? We're a team in evolution. I believe that nobody has played better than us with the ball, which is a big evolution from us last season.

"We are a very exciting to watch, I believe, and that is very important. That's the DNA we want to have. Is that enough to win football matches? No and you have the proof – we have only eight points when we played so amazing in every match apart from against Everton.

"Southampton, Man United, Newcastle, West Ham – we played amazing football and this is very difficult to do.

"We are doing that but of course we need to play for a result and we have to learn how to do it."
