Ben Davies insists Tottenham gave everything in their defeat to Everton despite being branded lazy by boss Jose Mourinho. The angry Spurs boss coated his team for not trying hard enough to press their opponents and having the “wrong state of mind” in their 1-0 defeat on Sunday.

The Wales defender said: “Look it’s a tough one. I think everybody worked hard. Me personally, I gave it my all. I wouldn’t doubt that everybody else in the team gave it their all. But the performance wasn’t up to scratch. It’s hard to put it down to a lack of effort. I’m sure we will evaluate where we went wrong moving forward.”

Spurs were defeated by Everton, who won at White Hart Lane for the first time in 12 years. It was also the first time Mourinho has ever been defeated on the opening matchday of a league campaign.
