Jose Mourinho blasts ‘lazy’ Tottenham stars after lacklustre Everton defeat

Jose Mourinho branded his players “lazy” after Tottenham were outclassed by Everton in a shock defeat.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored Everton’s winner from a free-kick Mourinho complained was taken in the wrong place.

But he was even more scathing about his own team – and claimed he was glad there is no Amazon doc being filmed after what he said to them in the dressing room.

The Spurs boss said: “I'm disappointed with my team. My message is inside the dressing room. I'm so happy no more Amazon because these things can stay between us.

“We were lazy in our pressing. That is a consequence of bad fitness, bad pre-season. Some players didn't even have a pre-season. Some players had a wrong state of mind.

“I did not like my team today. I did not like so many referees and officials to allow the free kick to be taken six metres from where it should have been.

“But we did not have the physical condition, we had no intensity. I could not expect them to be sharp, intense and agile. But I was expecting much more.”

Mourinho is looking for cover for Harry Kane and did not deny Spurs are interested in Trabzonspor striker Alexander Sørloth after the Turkish club confirmed they have held talks.

Mourinho added: “I’m not going to discuss the player because he belongs to Trabzonspor but if the president says that then I am not going to say it is not true.”

Everton matchwinner Calvert-Lewin said: “It was most important to get momentum today. We wanted to make a statement."

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti said: “This performance gives us more confidence for the future. We can compete in all the competitions. We have to fight to reach Europe.”
