Jose Mourinho slammed for ‘absolutely disgusting’ Tottenham tactics vs Chelsea

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has slammed Jose Mourinho's tactics as "absolutely disgusting" and accused him of throwing the towel in against Chelsea.

Spurs crashed to a 2-1 defeat on Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge on Saturday as Frank Lampard claimed a third successive win over his former boss.

They have been robbed of their only two strikers at the club as Son Heung-min joined Harry Kane in the treatment room last week, handing a devastating blow to Mourinho.

Spurs are in the thick of a six-way battle for fourth spot, are still in the FA Cup and are not out of the Champions League yet, despite last Wednesday's last-16 first-leg loss to RB Leipzig.

But Sherwood is not happy with how the north Londoners performed at Chelsea and told Premier League Productions: "Tottenham were absolutely disgusting.

"They were so bad. The negative approach. Yes they have injuries to Son and to Kane, Mourinho keeps reminding us of that.

"But they’ve got (Steven) Bergwijn there who can run in behind, they’ve got (Lucas) Moura who has pace.

"If they’ve got anything they’ve got pace. They both got 15 goals last season which is not the end of the world."
