Tottenham boss Mourinho delighted with Sanchez for victory over Burnley

Jose Mourinho was impressed with Tottenham Hotspur's defence in the win over Burnley, and signed out Davinson Sanchez for praise.

Spurs were able to keep a clean sheet in the 4-0 victory.

"I think the team played well defensively, it was a good compromise from the team," said Mourinho.

"The defensive line cannot play as high as we did if the midfield and attacking players do not press, especially the player with the ball. It was a collective performance, very positive collective performance with loads of effort.

"Even minute 92, 93 two corners, the team defended like it was 1-0 and not 4-0 and this compromise is fundamentally what the team news.

"Then Davinson played a very good game, very dominant, fresh, didn't play the last match and he was very good."
