‘Strong’ Fulham earn point

Jose Mourinho was left looking a little silly after his 1-1 draw with Fulham last night. The Portuguese coach had demanded that Scott Parker should apologise if he decided to play a strong side after the club were reportedly not happy with the short amount of time given to them to prepare for the match with Spurs which had been rearranged after Aston Villa had experienced a Covid-19 outbreak.

“In relation to Fulham, I think we should wait for tomorrow. We should see their team, their starting line-up, their bench, the players that start, the players on the bench, and the players not involved in the game,” said Mourinho ahead of the match.

“And after that we can all feel sorry for them. Or we can all think that they shouldn’t speak. If they come with their best, I think they should apologise to all of us. Come on, let’s play football.”

Spurs had plenty of chances in the game to take the win and Heung-Min Son missed a glut of opportunities after Harry Kane had given his side of the lead with a first-half header. Fulham went on to punish the north London club towards the end of the match with a goal from Ivan Cavaleiro.
