Mourinho has NO sympathy for Fulham ahead of rearranged Premier League clash

Parker's team battled hard for a deserved point after fielding a full-strength side, with an Ivan Cavaleiro header equalising Harry Kane's opener. "It's a disappointment that you've had a game called off and I understand that". But when you don't kill the game, you can not concede goals like that.

Have you ever played football?

"If tomorrow, they come with their best team, I think they should apologise to all of us".

"We have bad results and we should - and we could have - avoided these results".

Son was put through on goal by Tanguy Ndombele for the sort of opportunity he has buried on many occasions this season, but this time he scuffed his shot and it hit the post. I accept we have to play but it's the notice. When we see the best Fulham, then you realise that lots of things, they don't make sense.

Arteta, speaking ahead of his side's clash with Crystal Palace on Thursday, made the point that allowing man marking at corners but outlawing fist bumping makes the protocols hard to understand.

The players arrived in north London without a defeat in their last four league games, during which they tightened up at the back significantly.

"But when the match starts, stopping the celebration, stopping a manager shaking hands with another manager after games gets forgotten".

"I am normally the last one to moan or whine", he said. Would this have happened with a top of the tale clash with two of the biggest teams? But he was very complimentary to Dele and said that he sparked Spurs into life yesterday.

"More bravery, more focus in terms of organising the team and being solid as a team". Executing the chances - I had a chance and had to score. If that isn't an incentive to be a bit more cautious than usual, we're not sure what is. "We are going to follow them".

Fulham boss Scott Parker labelled the late adjustment as "scandalous" but Mourinho believed the bigger issue is consistency in determining the infection rate required to postpone a fixture.

And I will be the first one to say we played this game with an advantage.

"In this case, we also think about the father club so we have just to wait".

"To control the emotions when you're going 200mph in a game full of things happening around you is very hard to control", Arteta said.

Not even the prolific Kane is ideal and the Tottenham star squandered a good chance to double the lead moments later when he headed over from Serge Aurier's cross. I thought we were superb and I am very, very pleased.
