Mourinho: We deserved more against Brighton

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that his side deserved more in their Sunday shock defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion.

Brighton came into the game on a 14-game winless streak at the AMEX but Leandro Trossard ensured that they picked the entire three points with his first-half strike being the difference.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho said: "Not good in the first half, better in the second. We didn't start well, we started with some mistakes that lead to a ball that hit the post and then the goal.

"The team showed in the first half that it was too sad to play football. When you are too sad, you have no energy, enthusiasm or confidence, and that was what the team showed in the first half.

"The second half, I am much happier, they showed not a phenomenal performance, we didn't even turn the result but a different performance-more intensity and more dynamic. We were dominant in the second half and deserved a better result."

The loss means that Spurs have now won just three of their last eleven Premier League games in which Harry Kane hasn’t featured; their sorry run seeing them drop to sixth on the table with 33 points-this being eleven points below leaders Man City.
