Jose Mourinho criticises one Tottenham star after "painful" Chelsea defeat

Jose Mourinho has criticised Carlos Vinicius after Tottenham's "painful" loss on Thursday. Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, as Jorginho's 36th minute's penalty strike handed Thomas Tuchel his second win as Blues head coach. Speaking to BT Sport, after the game, Mourinho said: "It was a bit of a struggle but how many chances? The penalty? "So the struggling is what it is. We didn’t have the ball: correct. We didn’t create in the first half: correct. But the struggle was the penalty. To lose a game with a penalty like this is a bit painful but in the second half we were different, this period was different, confidence too. "I believe Lucas and Lamela helped the team to change a little bit their dynamic but in the end the feeling I have is we stick together until the end, fought together until the end and that’s probably a positive thing that we take because tomorrow we have to train and Sunday we have to play. "Vinicius, for example, is a player that has incredible spirit but his understanding of how to press, the positions on the pressing are not something that he’s still comfortable with so it was difficult, yes, but no chances. "And then in the second half I think it was much more difficult for them. We press them much better and higher, we brought a different spirit to the game and in the second half I believe we deserved a bit more." Source- Metro Join us on Telegram!
