The Tottenham coach said the win over Arsenal in the London derby “came from the hearts of my players.”
Jose Mourinho celebrated its first victory in the north london derby when Tottenham defeated 2-1 Arsenal, in a game in which the Spurs started at a disadvantage by the goal of Alexandre Lacazette, but they managed to reverse the score with so many Heung-min Son and Toby Alderweireld.
“We had a great spirit. It was very hot, I think, during the match. Nobody thought about it, nor did I myself, but Arsenal had 48 hours more than us to rest, so it was difficult,” said the Portuguese coach in dialogue with Sky Sports.
He added: “I think it came from their hearts, this effort, this battle, and even in the last minutes of the game after 2-1 we had zero problems, everything under control. We are happy because we made the fans happy. We are happy because We are still in the fight for a place in the Europa League. “
There are only three games left for Tottenham in the Premier League, and he could need the harvest of nine points in the duels against Newcastle United, Leicester City and Crystal Palace, to get the pass to the Europa League.
“I know that Chelsea and Liverpool did not help us at all, but it is about us. We must win the points and we lost some important ones, but now we have nine to fight for,” Mou concluded.
