The north Londoners have earned that nickname through the years for being flaky, shedding from successful positions and never turning up at massive moments.
The three-Three draw in opposition to the Hammers definitely matches into that class as, successful 3-0, they conceded three targets within the final eight minutes to drop two factors.
However Mourinho says a failure to defend set-pieces was the principle reason for that collapse.
“To be trustworthy, what occurred is slightly bit out of context from what occurred the remainder of the season,” he stated. “In opposition to Southampton we have been shedding and we have been sturdy sufficient to alter the end result.
“At Manchester United the worst factor occurred, which was after one minute we have been shedding and we have been sturdy sufficient to alter that end result.
“In opposition to Newcastle, we have been strong, we weren’t taking part in superb, we have been strong, after which what occurred is likely one of the beauties of the VAR this season. So this sport was utterly out of context.”
“I imagine that successful 3-Zero in minute 80 we might play 50 extra matches and it’s not going to occur once more. So I don’t need to be sticking on this and tales about ‘Spursy’, or this type of factor.”
