Mourinho blames individual mistakes and provides update on Harry Kane’s injury


Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that ‘individual mistakes’ cost his side in their 3-1 home loss to Liverpool on Thursday night.

The Lilywhites started off brightly but defensive errors and misjudgement from Hugo Lloris, Joe Rodon and Eric Dier led to all three Liverpool goals.


Speaking after his side’s home loss to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho said:

My analysis is that we started very well, but before we scored the offside goal we showed immediately what the game was going to be for us – a big occasion for Mane, a big defensive mistake,” Mourinho told the BBC.

That was the game for us, the team in the first half was very well organised, the goal is another mistake in the same position.


The second half we had to make changes, we lose Harry (Kane), had to change the structure of the team.

First minute, same mistake, second goal. Good reaction, another mistake and goal.


It was a team fighting against its own mistakes. Some individual mistakes that you saw, you can replay and I cannot say much more than that.

Jose Mourinho also provided update on Harry Kane, who was forced off at half-time after suffering injuries to both ankles during the first 45 minutes.

Two ankles, the first was a bad tackle, it was Thiago, the second one I didn’t know well

But two injuries in both ankles, the second one worst than the first one – a few weeks, I don’t know.

There are some players you can’t replace. When it happens it happens but I believe we have to fight against it, we cannot do anything else.
