José Mourinho has helped Tottenham Hotspur move out of the bottom half of the league table since he took the Spurs job in November. They are seventh in the table with 40 points, trailing fourth placed Chelsea by five points.
However, the north London club have failed to impress in other competitions. They suffered a 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in the first leg of the Champions League and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich City.
The clash against the Canaries ended in a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes as Josip Drmić’s second half goal cancelled Jan Vertonghen’s first half header. The outcome of the match was decided on penalties.
Norwich midfielder Alexander Tettey spoke to the Norwegian media about his side’s success over Tottenham and was critical about Spurs’ playing style under Mourinho.
“It’s great, but I don’t want to exaggerate. I’ve been a part of a lot before. It’s common. We’re a good team. We knew we would give them a lot of trouble because of the way they play,” Tettey told VG.
“They’ve changed completely from being very aggressive and good with the ball under Mauricio Pochettino, to what they’re doing now, where they just wait for you.”
After the latest success against Tottenham, Norwich will face Manchester United in the next round of the FA Cup. Tettey will be hoping his side can manage another upset in the cup competition.
