FA Cup: Mourinho attacks Tottenham players over ‘mistakes’ in Everton defeat


Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho, has slammed his players for the “mistakes” that led to a 5-4 defeat at Everton in the FA Cup fourth round.

Spurs got off to a fine start, when Davinson Sanchez headed in the opener in the third minute.

However, the hosts replied with three goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurddson.

Erik Lamela and Sanchez made it 3-3, before Harry Kane cancelled out Richarlison’s second.

But it was Bernard that had the final word with the decisive strike in extra time.

“We had the ball; we created, we had great movement, scored goals.

“Great character to fight against but goals only win games if you don’t make so many mistakes.

“We were the best team, winning 1-0; then in five minutes it was mistake, mistake, mistake; goal, goal, goal,” Mourinho said afterwards.
