Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has said the victory over Fulham was the ideal team performance.
Dele Alli proved the matchwinner on the night.
“Three important points, we should, we could, we played enough to kill the game, especially in the first half, but we didn’t,” reflected Mourinho at the Cottage. “Then we knew the second half would always be hard, but when they had their reaction, we were solid.
“Then, I believe, the three changes brought the energy and the qualities the team needed at that time. Lucas controlled Bryan well, Lamela playing with Harry through the middle and bringing the ball to zones and also creating, and getting free-kicks through his intensity, Moussa gave us that strength we needed at that time too.
“It was a team performance, we did it as a team. We changed three players, I would like to change 11 because they all deserved to play, but I changed three and I believe at this moment, with the way the squad is working, the next game I will change another three, because we need that as a team. The squad, as a squad, deserves that too.
“The clean sheet was also important, two saves, two important saves, good concentration, good focus, good control of a team that is an attacking team, they project so many players into attacking areas. So, yes, as a team, the boys did well.”
