Tottenham fans confused by Jose Mourinho’s comments about two Spurs players

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho praised two of his midfielders after their performances last night in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter can’t believe his comments.

Spurs picked up a point on Friday night in the league after a 2-2 away draw against Everton at Goodison Park.

Harry Kane, who is so often the go-to player, scored twice to cancel out two goals from ex-Spurs ace Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The north London club are five points adrift of the top four following the result, which is why it looks like an unlikely task from here to get into the Champions League positions.

Mourinho credited midfielders Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Moussa Sissoko in his post-match comments for their performances.

“I think Pierre and Moussa were the players who gave us the possibilities to compete because they were very solid in midfield,” Mourinho told Sky Sports’ Main Event channel (10:15pm, 16 April).

However, a selection of Spurs supporters on social media totally disagree with Mourinho’s assessment, claiming that the duo struggled in the centre of the park to take control of the match.

It was a match where it never really felt like Spurs were dominating, and the team’s midfielders were involved in a real battle against the likes of Allan and Tom Davies.

Defensive midfielder Hojbjerg has seen his form dip a little after what has been a successful first season for the club. Meanwhile, teammate Sissoko is a powerhouse central midfielder that plays a box-to-box role, and couldn’t stamp his authority against Everton.
