Tottenham boss Mourinho 'frustrated' with Wolves point: When you score in the first minute...

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho admits he's disappointed after their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

Tanguy Ndombele lashed in from 20 yards after 57 seconds, but Romain Saiss headed in a late corner to earn a point for Wolves.

Mourinho lamented, "One point against Wolves normally wouldn't be a bad result because they are a strong opponent. But scoring in the first minute and having 89 minutes to score more, there's a sense of feeling frustrated.

"I know the way I prepare the team, I know all that and don't want to say much more than that. We didn't have that ambition or desire to go for more.

"You know the way I work."

Asked what his side need to do more, Mourinho added: "It's not for me to talk to you about it. I know my team and my players better than anyone."

He also said, "Tanguy Ndombele had a good game when he had energy. I didn't want us to sit deep, I put Bergwijn on for Reguilon, a fresh Lamela for a tired Son.

"Defending deep, that's not the intention. They know what I asked them at half-time, if they couldn't do better it's because they couldn't do better."
