Mourinho happy with his side’s goal record

Mon 08 March 2021 | 8:40

The Portuguese took a dig at his critics as Spurs made it nine points from their last three Premier League games by beating Palace 4-1 on Sunday afternoon. Tottenham now scored 100 goals over the season in all competitions.

"

If the stats I was given are correct - 100 goals scored in the season, which for a very defensive team, a very negative team, is not bad,

" said the Portuguese coach.

"It was a good week for us. Three matches, nine points, and for next week when we play a crucial match in the Europa, and against Arsenal, nothing could be better for us than to win nine points this week."

Currently sixth in the Premier League table,

Tottenham

can also qualify for that competition by winning the Europa League. Asked if a top-four finish could now be on the cards for the Lilywhites,

Mourinho

added:

"I don't know, and I'm not really, really thinking about it.

"We have to try to win as many matches as we can, get the most number of points as possible, if possible playing well, if possible not conceding many, if possible scoring goals, and try to see what can happen.

"I refuse to forget the Europa League, I refuse just to say Thursday is not important, because for me it is just as important."
