Mourinho slams Spurs
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho criticised Tottenham for their approach after the two clubs drew 0-0.

He said: "As we say in Portugal, they brought the bus and they left the bus in front of the goal.

"I would have been frustrated if I had been a supporter who paid 50 to watch this game because Spurs came to defend.

"I'm really frustrated because there was only one team looking to win, they only came not to concede - it's not fair for the football we played."

Mourinho added: "They fell as if they were dead and for five minutes each time, five more minutes when they change a player and they did this all the time.

"We played some fantastic football and we created lots of chances.

"I have no complaints with my players' performance.

"This is a difficult league with everyone losing games. Maybe even Tottenham will lose a game defending with 11 players."
