Injury storms one by one on top European clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur among them. Some of their best players have to pull out a long time because of injury. Even this situation is recognized manager Jose Mourinho makes his team become unbalanced.
Since the end of last December, Tottenham was hit by a hurricane of injury, one of the most regrettable is the injury of the mainstay striker, Harry Kane.
Since the England international was pulled over, it must be admitted that the north London club began to find a series of disappointing results.
They tend to be inconsistent in terms of the results obtained. But in the latest match in the FA Cup match against Southampton, Tottenham seemed to start to rise. They managed to win the match with a final score of 3-2.
As a result, Spurs have the right to advance to the next round. After the victory, coach Jose Mourinho also admitted that at the moment he can only get his team going as far as possible in the FA Cup. This is because the balance of the club is disrupted due to the injury of several players.
“What is our focus now is to stay as far as possible. We have so many difficulties. I’m not just talking about Harry Kane, I’m talking about Giovani lo Celso, Eric Lamela, where at the moment the players can bring balance, ”
“Today the team is really out of balance. “It’s really difficult to organize a team and it’s really hard to win matches,” Mourinho said as quoted by BBC Sports.
Meanwhile, thanks to the victory over Southampton, Tottenham advanced to the round of 16. In this round, the North London club will face Norwich City later. The party will take place on March 5.
However, before the fight Spurs had to go through four other matches. One of the tough matches is against RB Leipzig in the first leg of the last 16 of the European Champions League. They will also face Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Therefore, it is not an easy task for Jose Mourinho to continue Tottenham’s consistency over the past few seasons. As is known, the previous coach Mauricio Pochettino always managed to deliver the club to finish in the last four during the last four seasons.
