Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at critics who have labeled his Tottenham negative after they brought up 100 goals for the season in the win over Crystal Palace.
Spurs are fighting hard to figure their way into the highest four within the Premier League after a slump in form earlier within the year, and therefore the convert Palace moved them up to sixth within the table.
The four goals against the Eagles mentioned their century for the season altogether competitions, and Mourinho was fast to point that out.
“I was told 100 goals scored within the season which for a really defensive team, a really negative team, isn’t bad,” Mourinho asserted.
Mourinho was asked about the prospect of Spurs getting into the top four, with them now within four points of Chelsea.
“I cannot control the other teams and their results,” Mourinho said. “We just need to get the most points we can.
If possible playing well, if possible scoring goals, if possible not conceding goals.
“I refuse to forget the Europa League and that we have a final expecting us. We can enjoy this in a soft way because we know that Arsenal away, Villa away and Newcastle away is next.”

Harry Kane scored two and assisted the opposite pair, and Mourinho wouldn’t change him for any other forward.
“I wouldn’t change him for anybody because he’s an incredible player,” Mourinho asserted.
