Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has told his players to learn from Wolves and hit out at referee Stuart Attwell.

Raul Jimenez scored the winner for Wolves at Tottenham Hotspur for the second season in succession as they came from behind to earn a 3-2 victory.

“In the first minute of the game Ruben Neves makes a tackle on Lucas Moura going into attacking spaces,” Mourinho said. “That is nothing to do with the result of the game but something I would like (clarified) one day when I have the opportunity to ask the PGMOL people.

“The game is from the first to the last second and what happened, I don’t think the referee has to look to the watch. If there is a penalty in the first minute, it’s a penalty. If there is a red card, there’s a red card. If there’s a yellow card, there’s a yellow card.

“That is a yellow card and that is a way the referee shows immediately what you can do and what you cannot do.

“In the last minute they did the same with (Leander) Dendoncker that the referee correctly gave a yellow card. And I think that’s the way a team has to play football. That’s the way they did.

“The referee is there to punish, but they (Wolves) had the correct mentality and I think we were punished.”
