EPL: Mourinho blasts Tottenham players, reveals why his team lost 1-0 to Everton
Everton manager, Jose Mourinho, has slammed his players for being ‘lazy’ following his side’s Premier League 1-0 home defeat against Everton on Sunday.
Mourinho also said that Everton defeated his team because Spurs did not convert their chances to score against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s second-half goal gave Everton all three points against Tottenham.
Reacting, Mourinho told BBC Sport after the game: “What happened before the goal was a good game. We had two incredible situations, and two good saves from Jordan Pickford. We did not score. The game was open.
“In the second half, one goal made a difference in the result and what happened after the goal.
“We were lazy in our pressing. That is a consequence of bad fitness, bad pre-season. Some players did not even have a pre-season.”
