- Jose Mourinho has reacted to his side’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle United at St James’ Park
- Victory for Spurs in the encounter would have seen them go fourth on the Premier League standings
- Mourinho took a swipe on his players lamenting that he is frustrated following the draw
Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe on his players after they conceded a late goal away at Newcastle United which allowed the Magpies grab a point at the St. James’ Park.
Spurs were 2-1 ahead away from home and would have moved into fourth position on the Premier League standings, only for Joe Willock to grab a point for the hosts late in the game.
And that goal seems to have infuriated Tottenham boss Mourinho who lamented that his side needed to have won the game. The game ended 2-2.
Three points in the encounter would see Spurs move above Chelsea on the standings but Willocks’s striker got Mourinho blasting his players.
The Portuguese told BBC Radio Five Live after the match as cited in Mirror:
"I am frustrated. We needed to win the match and we came to win. We were not far from winning it but, at the same time, we created some instability on the game with so many individual defensive mistakes that we made.
"We always gave Newcastle a chance to be in the game. Of course, we had the biggest chance of the game to make it 3-1 and kill it, then we concede a game the next minute."
Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has finally spoken following this costly red card during his side's 5-2 defeat against relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion.
Silva was making a return to action for the first time in two months after an injury kept him on the sidelines.
However, his comeback was one to forget after he was handed marching orders midway the first half of the Saturday, April 3, Premier League encounter.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City further consolidated their position on the Premier League table after beating Leicester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
A goal each from Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus were all the Citizens needed to claim maximum points against one of their toughest rivals.
Pep Guardiola's men are now closer to winning their third title in four seasons as they remain at the summit of the table with 74 points after 31 games.
